Heartbreak for Bachelor couple Locky Gilbert and Irena Srbinovska as they lose a child to miscarriage… after cruel trolling ‘led to devastating consequences’

The Bachelor‘s Locky Gilbert and Irena Srbinovska have shared their heartbreak after losing a child to miscarriage.

The couple, who met on last year’s season of the Channel 10 dating show, lost their child ‘a few months’ into their relationship but chose to keep it private.

They spoke about the miscarriage for the first time in an interview with Who magazine, which hit newsstands on Thursday, admitting it was a ‘devastating low’.

Irena, 31, said the miscarriage may have been linked to the stress she was going through in the aftermath of The Bachelor.

To the outside world, she seemed happy after moving from Melbourne to Perth to live with adventure tour guide Locky.

But the nurse was secretly struggling after her father, Vasco, had suffered a medical emergency and she couldn’t be with him due to Covid border closures.

She was also dealing with trolls after Locky had infamously told his runner-up on The Bachelor, Bella Varelis, he was falling in love with her only to pick Irena instead.

According to Who magazine, ‘the stress led to devastating consequences’.

Irena told the publication: ‘During our first few months together I unfortunately suffered a miscarriage. But Locky was my absolute rock and having his support made me love him even more.’

Locky, 30, said: ‘We are just normal people and while we put ourselves in the spotlight, you never know what is going on in our lives that day.

‘If you have to say something, then direct it at me, not my girl.’

Despite their heartbreaking setback, Locky and Irena remain hopeful of starting a family together in the near future.

‘We talk about it all the time,’ said Irena, adding that they have already chosen names for the two children they plan to have.

‘We aren’t spring chickens, so it’ll happen sooner rather than later,’ Locky added.

How at least one in six pregnancies ends in a miscarriage 

One in six pregnancies in women who know they are pregnant become miscarriages.

But even more happen among women who don’t know they have conceived.

Miscarriage occurs when a pregnancy is lost within the first 23 weeks after conception.

The main symptoms are bleeding from the vagina, which may be accompanied by lower abdominal pain.

There are various reasons women may have a miscarriage – it is common and is not usually caused by something they have done.

If a miscarriage happens in the second trimester – between weeks 14 and 26 – it may be a sign of an underlying problem.

Often, miscarriages are isolated events and women will go on to have successful pregnancies.

The majority of miscarriages can’t be prevented, although being generally healthy will help reduce the risk.

Losing three or more pregnancies in a row – known as recurrent miscarriages – is uncommon but still affects around one in 100 women.
