It comes after the actress recently revealed her struggles during her first trimester, admitting it had proven “incredibly difficult” for her.
“I have to admit, the first trimester was incredibly difficult for me, mentally and physically,” she said on her blog.
“I wasn’t prepared for how taxing pregnancy would be on my mental health. Everyone tells you not to share your news until the ‘safe zone’ after 12 weeks – this is due to the risk of miscarriage dropping significantly after 12 weeks. Everyone is different, there’s no one size fits all. If you feel more comfortable to wait, then please do.

“However, I told all my close girlfriends, gayfriends and family pretty much as soon as I tested positive on an at-home test. I was too excited to keep it a secret. I wanted to share the news with the people I love the most, and I am so glad I did, because once the symptoms kicked in (around 6 weeks) my mental health quickly deteriorated.”
She added that she was bedridden for two months, and was “throwing up constantly with extreme exhaustion”.
“I feel so far from the person I was. Before pregnancy I was fit, healthy, full of energy, keen for adventures, financially stable and always giggling my head off. Now, all I can stomach is Vegemite toast. I sleep literally the entire day, I only get up to wee (frequently) and throw up,” she added.
