A Place in the Sun’s Scarlette Douglas breaks down after heartbreaking baby admission

A Place in the Sun’s Scarlette Douglas choked back tears in her latest Instagram video as she celebrated a bittersweet birthday. The Channel 4 presenter, who turned 37 today, admitted to feeling emotional telling her followers: “I should be a mummy by now”.

Scarlette has been sharing her egg-freezing story with her followers and while she said she is grateful for everything she has in life, she really longs to be a mother. She captioned the two-minute clip: “Egg Freezing Diary Day 17 and my birthday!

“Yes I get emotional in this video but it’s been the first time I’ve shed a tear since I started this journey a few weeks ago (and not because I’m fully in the 35-45 age bracket lol)

“Ladies, you are not alone on this journey but it can feel lonely so take each day as it comes and ride that emotional wave knowing it won’t last forever.”

Scarlette began the video on a positive note as she informed fans it was her 37th birthday. She said: “I’m in that bracket now when you click… you know when you’ve got to do a form and you’ve got a tick between what age and what age you are, I’m going further up. I’m in the 35 to 45 category now.

“Egg freezing diary day 17. How do I feel? I feel emotional today for many reasons, probably. hormones being one, but also, I didn’t think I would be 37 and not have a partner, not be engaged, not be married, not have kids.”

Scarlette’s voice started to crack as she went on: “So I think all of that is getting on top of me a little bit today.

“Don’t get me wrong, I’m unbelievably grateful for everything that I have in my life… for my family, for my friends, my house, my security, my work, all of that I’m so grateful.

“I don’t for one minute want anybody to think that I’m not because I am and I give thanks every day.”

The property expert choked back tears as she admitted: “But I also definitely thought I would have been a mummy by now, and I’m looking at my tummy like yeah, it’s a lot. So for anyone who is going through this out there, I want you to know that you’re not alone. Hence me doing this whole diary.”

Scarlette’s voice broke again as she added: “It will feel very lonely if you are a single woman doing this even if you do have all your friends and family around you and mine have been unbelievable. But it’s still quite a lonely journey to be on, but you will get through, you really will.

“So it’s mixed emotions today. Obviously, I’m super happy because it’s my birthday and I’m going to be heading out with my family. But at the same time, I do want my own little family which is why I’m doing the egg freezing so that I can secure my eggs for a later date so that I can have a little family.”
