Malin Andersson has confessed she is ‘not in a good place’ after opening up about the ‘trauma’ of suffering a recent miscarriage.
The Love Island star had been quiet on social media after learning she was pregnant, but then sadly lost the baby.
It came two years after the death of her newborn daughter Consy.
Malin shared that she has decided to take some more time away from updating her followers on Instagram as she needs to concentrate on getting back into a better headspace.
She posted a message on her Stories on Tuesday which read: ‘Hi all…I know I’ve been silent on here for a week, I have needed to take time off to process what has happened.
‘I’m always transparent with you all and I haven’t been in a good place at all.
‘Sending you love. I’ll be back soon x.’

Malin previously expressed that she ‘doesn’t have it in her’ to go into detail about the heartbreak she has suffered, and will only speak when she is truly ready.
apologised to fans who were perhaps used to the reality star baring all on her channels.
She wrote alongside a selfie: ‘Sorry guys. You all know usually I like to do a selfie video and talk…and talk about how I feel and what’s going on.
‘Don’t really have it in me right now. I have the words but they won’t come out.’
Malin continued in a further post: ‘In light of what’s happened to me, it’s made me realise how common miscarriages are & how many women it affects.
‘I’m overwhelmed with the amount of messages, and stories that I’ve been sent.
‘My heart truly cries for those that have experienced it too. I still don’t have enough in me to go into detail but once I’m ready I’ll talk. The feeling of being pregnant has brought back so many emotions in a different way… emotions I must have buried.’
The reality TV star shared with her fans that ‘miscarriage doesn’t discriminate and it can happen to anyone. Even when you think you have gone through enough.’
Reassuring fans of her wellbeing, she concluded: ‘I’ll be fine – my strength never ceases to amaze me sometimes but I felt that I needed to share this with you all as I’ve never been one to hold anything back – especially when I know it can help someone else.’
