The Britain's Got Talent judge, who shares her two young daughters with husband Chris Hughes was left devastated a decade ago when her little boy 'Theo' was pronounced a stillbirth.

"Beautiful family, have a wonderful day," added a third fan, followed by a string of red heart emojis.

Amanda has been incredibly open about her tragic loss which happened over a decade ago, both to raise awareness of stillbirths and to reflect on her own experience.

Last July, Amanda reflected on the heartbreaking experience and the moment she was told there was no heartbeat on the BBC's Dear NHS Superstars special. "I remember waking up and thinking I hadn't felt my baby kick for most of the night which was unusual because he was so active," she shared.

"I tried all the things they tell you to do, but he wasn't moving. But I didn't panic." Fighting back the tears, Amanda said: "I held him even though he was fast asleep. The one thing I remember is his perfectly formed eyebrows, which all my children have."

The Heart FM presenter was then told she could take home some keepsakes of Theo. "Theo was put into a little room so his body could be preserved and we could go and see him as much or as little as we wanted," she revealed.

"Jackie talked to me about the keepsakes we could have, to remind ourselves of Theo forever. We got his footprints and a little bit of his hair and the blanket he was born in."
