Made In Chelsea star Ollie Locke and his husband Gareth have revealed their first attempt to have a child was unsuccessful.
The pair announced earlier this year they were planning to have a baby via a surrogate.
But speaking to Hello! Magazine in their west London home, they said the pregnancy had not gone as planned.
However, the couple said they remained “optimistic” and would try again.
Ollie said: “I think our expectations were very high and we really thought it was going to work, but nature’s nature and we can’t do anything about it.
“We have to think that it wasn’t meant to be and we are going to go ahead in a month or so and do it again. We’re optimistic.
“Sometimes it just doesn’t work. But that’s not going to stop us from trying again and again.”
Gareth Locke added: “The feeling of not being pregnant this time really made us realise how much we want to become parents, and we are determined to do that.”
The couple married at London’s Natural History Museum last year in front of 13 guests including bridesmaids Binky Felstead and Olivia Bentley, who had both also starred in Made In Chelsea.
The Lockes organised the event with 48 hours’ notice before the second national lockdown began in England in early November.
They also explained why they decided to renovate their three-bedroom, three-bathroom home.
Gareth said: “We got married and I moved into the house but Ollie had already lived there.
“So now we have put our own stamp on the house together. We changed it from Ollie’s bachelor pad to our marital home, and hopefully it’s going to be our family home.”
Ollie is one of the original cast members of structured reality series Made In Chelsea, having appeared on and off since 2011.
