Ollie Locke says he still wants to be a father despite tragically losing his twins to a surrogate last year.
The Made In Chelsea star, 34, and husband Gareth revealed the devastating news of the miscarriage when they shared a photo of a tiny bathrobe with Baby Locke Locke embossed on it on Instagram.
Explaining the snap, Ollie explained that “in the course of nature, it stopped growing and was gone after 6 weeks and 2 days.”
However, the star has now revealed that they were in fact two babies who sadly passed away.
First, Ollie broke the happy news that the couple was five weeks pregnant during the Made In Chelsea final.
However, he then revealed: “A couple of weeks later we had to call the producers and say ‘we lost the babies’ – it was two babies – and they asked if we wanted them to cancel the episode.
“I said absolutely not because I felt it was important to let people know that there are tough times before it’s happily ever after,” he says The sun.
Despite their heartbreak, Ollie and Gareth are determined to become parents.
Ollie continued, “We’re all holding hands. We hope next year will be the year we have the baby we want and deserve and need.”
Speaking about how her loss has affected the couple’s relationship, Ollie admitted the experience had “slightly pulled them apart” and revealed they had already spent £100,000 on the surrogacy process.
“There is advice out there but sometimes it’s expensive and the last thing you want to do is try to spend £1,000 on a call,” said Ollie.
“We did that at the beginning. There are a lot of people out there trying to make money from it.

Ollie and Gareth flew to Cyprus with their surrogate in October for a second IVF attempt.
Unfortunately, their baby journey hasn’t panned out the way they’d hoped, but the couple’s determination to keep trying has inspired fans and followers alike.
In response to Ollie’s post about his tragic loss, one fan wrote: “You are so strong and amazing. I send you all the love in the world. As always, inspirational words.
While another said: “I’m so sorry for your loss but your time will come.”
