"You feel like you are never going to be the ones who get to say, 'We are having a baby'. That is why we feel so blessed now," says 29-year-old Harry as he tells the magazine of their struggle to conceive and the heartache of a miscarriage from their first attempt at IVF last year.
Harry Judd and his wife Izzy have revealed they turned to IVF to conceive their first baby
"In an ideal world when you're ready to start a family you hope you will conceive in the first few months of trying," says Harry. "We were like, no, no we won't need IVF, it won't be us. IVF was like something you didn't talk about. We thought it would be fine."
"Every baby is a miracle but we do feel so very lucky," says Izzy, 31, who was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries in her twenties.
"I never wanted to stop believing that we would have a family," says Izzy. "But you do feel like someone has pressed pause on your life and you can't go anywhere."
The couple, who started to try for a family after their wedding in 2012, share the moment they watched on a scan as the embryo was implanted, with Izzy telling HELLO!: "It was such a clinical environment but there was such magic in the air."
The couple lost count of the number of times people asked them if we wanted to have a family. "This was always so impossible to answer and felt like my heart was breaking every time," says Izzy.
The couple are yet to find out if they are having a boy or a girl with Harry adding: No we don't want to know," says Harry.
