Harry Judd and wife burst into tears over IVF success

Harry Judd's spouse Izzy made sure the McFly musician contributed to her book Dare to Dream: My Struggle to Become a Mum - A Story of Heartache and Hope.

Harry Judd's wife Izzy has recalled how they were both in “floods of tears” upon realising their in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment had worked.

The McFly musician and his spouse tied the knot in 2012 and became parents to Lola Rose Emma Judd in January 2016. Harry and Izzy turned to IVF treatment after struggling to fall pregnant the traditional way and during an appearance on U.K. talk show Lorraine on Wednesday (28Jun17) the brunette beauty opened up about how lucky she and her husband felt upon seeing their baby for the first time.

“I know it’s really tough but there are moments when we got to see Lola as an embryo on the screen, and it was a moment between Harry and I, and it wasn’t the way we thought, but there she was,” Izzy recalled. “And I remember Harry turning and going, ‘It’s a girl,’ and we were both in floods of tears. And I don’t think people think of IVF that way. It’s a miracle... I was very, very lucky, for me it did work both times, tragically the first one did end in miscarriage, which was utterly devastating, but then we were lucky enough to go on with Lola, and then to have fallen pregnant naturally."

Izzy continued to remember how “lonely” she and Harry were after the devastating loss of their first child through the treatment before it was born, which inspired her to pen a book about their experience. Dare to Dream: My Struggle to Become a Mum - A Story of Heartache and Hope covers everything from how she longed to be a mother from a young age to the success of the fertility treatment, with Harry, 31, also contributing to the tome.

“I felt that it was important that Harry wrote a chapter in the book because it’s very much teamwork, it’s both you and your partner that are going through this and often the men can be slightly overlooked,” she added. “I’m very lucky, Harry is very sensitive and we were able to communicate to each other, which I think was so important.”
