However, the announcement also revealed she had suffered a "devastating" loss in 2020.She later confessed that she "had a hard time being excited" during the early months of her pregnancy.

"I had a hard time feeling really excited for the pregnancy because I was nervous something may go wrong and this baby wouldn't make it," she told fans.
