Loose Women’s Brenda Edwards has revealed she had no idea she was expecting until she was five months into her pregnancy.
The 51-year-old television personality, who is mother to SB.TV founder Jamal Edwards and daughter Tanisha, was still getting her periods and only discovered she was pregnant after collapsing at her birthday party.
Brenda shared the surprise with co-hosts Ruth Langsford, Saira Khan and Janet Street-Porter during a segment titled: ‘The secrets we kept from our families.’
‘My pregnancy was a secret from me for five months,’ she said, before explaining: ‘Well I didn’t realise I was pregnant for five months.
‘I was having my monthly cycle and I had my 21st birthday party and I blacked out in that so I went to see the doctors and they said I was almost five months pregnant.’
‘That was a secret for me and I did actually keep it a secret from my family for another couple of months because obviously, I’m trying to deal with this surprise myself,’ she continued.
‘It wasn’t a secret, it was a happy surprise.’
‘Just go for it,’ she said, sharing advice for people wanting to find romance on dating apps.
Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
