We decided that we want to try for another baby and me being overweight was causing us a lot of problems
Loose Women guest panelist Claire Richards opened up today about the reasons for her recent weight loss and revealed she is trying for another baby.
Eager to dispel rumours surrounding her new figure she told us: “I’m not doing some miracle diet, I don’t have the secret to weight loss and staying slim.
"I clearly haven’t because I’ve been up and down so many times, if I did then you would never know about the struggles that I’ve had all my life… This time I’ve deliberately tried to keep it under the radar… I haven’t talked about it at all until today…”
Opening up about her personal reasons for losing weight, Claire said it is to do with extending her family: “This time there is a personal reason and it is something extremely personal to me but my husband Reece and I decided that we want to try for another baby and me being overweight was causing us a lot of problems, so I went to see the doctor and he advised that I lose weight. So that is the one and only reason why I have done it this time.”
After confirming that's she not yet pregnant, she continued: “I actually realised that whenever I have become pregnant, I was slim. I’ve never tried when I was overweight before and this time it just wasn’t happening so we went to find out what was going on and that was the first thing so from this moment on we’ll see what happens.”
