Amy Hart has shared her delight in being able to conceive naturally after struggling with fertility issues.

The Love Island star, 30, revealed she is pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Sam Rason as she appeared on Loose Women last month.

Hart spent £12,000 on freezing her eggs in a bid to increase her chances of having children prior to getting pregnant naturally.

Everything happens for a reason,” told OK! of conceiving naturally. “If I don’t use the eggs in the future, I will donate them.”

She revealed prior to discovering her pregnancy, she was instructed by doctors not to get pregnant as she has human papillomavirus (HPV) and they wanted to remove abnormal cells from her cervix.

Hart has been anxious about her pregnancy following the abnormal cells discovery

“I’d been told under no circumstances to get pregnant until these cells were out,” Hart told OK!.

“So I was googling and messaging friends who are midwives but they hadn’t heard of it.

“We spent the whole weekend worrying we were going to be told we’d have to terminate the pregnancy to get the cells out, or that they’d leave it but I could get ill. But Sam said, ‘Your health comes first always.’”

After her first baby scan at six weeks, Hart said she and boyfriend Sam started planning for their child’s arrival, though they’re aware “things do go wrong” and have continued to worry.

Hart explained that a medical consultant assured her that her pregnancy could continue.

She said: “I’ve been given a consultant and they said there is a one in four chance of miscarriage if they remove the cells in early pregnancy.

“But they said if we manage to hold out until 36 weeks and you’re the one in four then that’s just an early labour and you have a viable baby.

“So they said they will leave it as long as they can and keep monitoring them. I’m hoping they can be removed after I’ve had the baby. It doesn’t affect the pregnancy but it is quite scary.”

Hart added that “four fibroids” have also been discovered outside her womb, adding more concern, though she remains excited about her pregnancy.

“They shouldn’t be competing for space with the baby – but that’s a worry, too. There’s just all this drama with me,” Hart said.
