‘With Jono we actually got pregnant and I lost the baby at 12 weeks. So that was pretty much the day I was allowed to tell everyone,” she said.

‘And it was really heartbreaking. I actually went through a full labor at home. And I saw baby’.

Poh said she shared her story because abortion is important for women to be open about.

“I like bringing this up because I think it’s something people should talk about,” she said.

‘And I think it’s this kind of silent grief that women have to go through all the time.’

She continued: ‘I really like to confront my feelings up front. I think it’s really healthy. I don’t like to bury anything.

‘But it was probably one of the most horrible things I’ve ever been through’.

In February 2021, Poh announced that she had split from Jonathan – who is almost a decade younger than her – after six years of marriage.

The couple, who met on the set of MasterChef, were together for 12 years in total, but in the end their age difference got between them.

“Jono and I broke up just over two years ago,” Poh told Australian Story.

“There’s an eight-year age difference and I think in the beginning we thought love could conquer everything.

“I think those kinds of little things start to fall apart and we realized we just had to set each other free again.”
