Heartbroken Made in Chelsea Ollie and Gareth Locke have revealed their first round of IVF with the help of a surrogate has failed
This year, the couple, who married in May, has been charting their surrogacy journey on Instagram since announcing they had found a woman to help them become parents.
In one of their most recent posts, the pair uploaded a video of their embryo being created and the joy they felt at possibly being parents in 2022.
But in a post, Ollie told his 450,000 followers that they found out that their first attempt had been unsuccessful.
Ollie said: “We wanted to share an update with all our amazing supportive followers who have been with us on our surrogacy journey. I’m sorry I have been quiet, sadly we found out last week our first attempt at IVF hasn’t worked and after the heartbreaking news we have come to terms with the situation and are now looking forward to getting out to go for a second attempt very soon.
“Doing surrogacy and IVF is not a straightforward thing and there are a lot of ups and downs and testing times that really make you appreciate what it means to achieve the end result of having children.
“Our heart goes out to everyone who has been through this and still going through it and hopes that sharing this journey and experience will highlight how difficult and emotional the journey really is. The support we have had has been amazing and we will continue to keep you all a part of our journey. I adore all of you and all your kind messages, we are being super positive and looking forward to the next round!
“Our surrogate is the best human I have ever met and we love her so very much, thank you for being our superstar.”
The couple hopes to try again soon.
