Gwyneth Paltrow has opened up for the first time about her anguish at losing her third child in a tragic miscarriage that 'nearly killed her'.
The Oscar-winning actress described the devastating miscarriage as a 'really bad experience' and confided that she misses the baby who would be a sibling to her daughter Apple, eight, and son Moses, six.
"My children ask me to have a baby all the time," she told The Mail on Sunday.
"And you never know, I could squeeze one more in. I am missing my third. I'm thinking about it."
During the unusually candid interview, the 40-year-old mother praised her husband Chris Martin for being a great father, but revealed losing her child may have put the couple off having more kids.
"I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third. It didn't work out and I nearly died. So I am like, "Are we good here or should we go back and try again?" she says.
"Regardless of what happens in our marriage, I chose the best father.
"[Chris] is so good to the children and to know that you had kids with such a good man is a real weight off you."
Paltrow gave no indication of when she suffered the miscarriage, but she has previously spoken of her desire to have more children, revealing in an interview last August she feared she may have "missed the window".
"I think maybe when Moses was three I would have done it… but now he's six and such a guy I feel like I'm out of the baby phase. If it happens, it happens," she told The Daily Mail.
