She told Ok! of her health scare: ‘We’d never heard of a hemorrhage in pregnancy so when you’re told that you think the worst. 

‘It was an extremely worrying time. I was bleeding for a week so I went to see a doctor. Automatically we though something was wrong or that I was miscarrying.’

She then went for a follow-up appointment and was told it had got bigger while experiencing severe pain.

‘They put me on bed rest but that only lasted a day as it’s pretty hard to do nothing when you have two kids. It was an extremely worrying time and was before the 12 weeks so it was a really scary.’

She added that the hemorrhage had cleared itself up and that it may have been caused by an internal injury or disruption.

Discussing more positive aspects of her pregnancy she told how her five-year-old Gracie noticed that her tummy had got bigger and was delighted when they told her the happy news. 

She then joked that once the baby arrives that they will be ‘living in a mad house’ as they have recently bought a puppy too.

The pair couldn’t wait to find out the gender and were thrilled to find out it was a little girl.   

Brianne and Kevin first met in 2019 when they were paired up for the 2020 series of Dancing on Ice. 

Baby Olivia! The couple – who welcomed daughter Olivia Mai in February – have shared their excitement at being pregnant again

The couple confirmed they were expecting their first child together in September and also revealed at the time they had tied the knot, 

Brianne and Kevin married at Bonnie View Inn in Haliburton and were unable to have any guests with them from the UK due to Covid-19 safety regulations.

And so, their nuptials were attended only by Brianne’s daughter Gracie, her immediate family, and two friends. The pair plan on having a second wedding ceremony in Ireland at some point. 

In February, the couple confirmed they had welcomed their first child together, with their bundle of joy weighing 6lbs 11oz. 

Announcing the happy news, Brianne wrote: ‘Olivia Mai. Born at 8:30am, February 3rd 2021. Weighing 6’11.

‘We love you so much and Gracie has never been more excited to get a baby sister and bestie for life.’    

In March, the couple admitted they have both had to make ‘huge sacrifices’ since they first got together, with Brianne quitting her role on Dancing On Ice after a decade last year.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Kevin said: ‘We’ve both had to make huge sacrifices, including Bri quitting her job, but they haven’t felt like sacrifices because everything has felt so natural with us coming together. I wouldn’t change a thing as it’s been perfect.’

The former footballer added that it was a ‘big deal’ for Brianne to give up her career and move back to her native Canada and said he is ‘in awe’ of her. 

Brianne has no regrets about departing the show as she feels that being with Kevin has given her a level of contentment she has never known.

The TV star admitted she had been considering leaving Dancing On Ice prior to the 2020 series because she had ‘a lot going on’ with her daughter Gracie, but now sees it as the best thing she ever did because she got to meet Kevin.
