Australian model Megan Gale, 41, has opened up for the first time on her devastating miscarriage in May of last year, just as she was starting her dream role as a judge on Australia’s Next Top Model.

Speaking to InStyle Australia for their February 2017 issue, the 41-year-old – who is already a mum to two-year-old so River – said she just felt “nervous and horrible” on the day of her eight-week scan, knowing that something wasn’t right.

“I can’t put my finger on it—there was no physical change or a sign or symptom…[I wondered] if I was being overprotective and paranoid, or if something was wrong,” she said.

“I hopped up on the table and [my obstetrician] put the ultrasound on my tummy. He just kept moving it and not saying anything and I started to feel sick.

“He was quiet, and then he just said, ‘I’m so sorry, it’s gone.'”

Megan said she and partner Shaun Hampson, 28, had been thrilled to discover she was pregnant in May.
