She, however, explained that she and Knibbs decided to embrace the situation, and it made them better people. She revealed that the lockdown helped them build a stronger relationship as a family since they were always available to help each other.
The dancer also added that she had an amazing relationship with her husband because they were best of friends, and they communicated and supported each other when either of them was having a bad day.
Lowe opened up about the rough patch they had to go through after the miscarriages. She explained that they both had a tough time handling the situation, especially since they tried so hard to start a family.
She, however, admitted that she and Knibbs’ time at home helped them come to terms with the situation, and it gave them a positive mindset because they were grateful for their little boy Jack.
After a long and difficult journey to motherhood, the 39-year-old welcomed baby Jack last year.
The star first got pregnant three weeks before tying the knot in Australia in 2018. Unfortunately, on a flight back to the UK, she did not “feel right” and eventually lost the baby.
Three months later, during her honeymoon with Knibbs, Lowe discovered she was pregnant again. Three months after this revelation, she suffered another miscarriage, which caused her to suffer a mental breakdown.
