“That was the end of the world”: Ryan “Fitzy” Fitzgerald speaks about losing his daughter

He’s the proud father to two healthy sons Hewston, five, and Lennox, two, but beloved radio star Ryan “Fitzy” Fitzgerald has addressed losing his first child, a daughter, in 2008.

Speaking to Sunday Style magazine the 38-year-old opened up about the traumatic experience and the impact it had on him and wife Belinda Irons, who he married in 2008. ‘My wife and I lost a child [during pregnancy], so there was a moment where that was the end of the world,’ he told the publication.
Before going on to explain that when they finally welcomed their first son, it put everything into perspective.
'But when we had our first child, Hewston we had to think how lucky we were to have one,' the 96.9 FM presenter mused.
It’s not the first time the former Big Brother star has spoken about the heartbreaking loss of Cayley Jay.
In 2013 he told website Show And Tell: "We lost our first child Cayley Jay and unfortunately BJ still had to give birth. It was a very traumatic experience but also brought us so much closer and we produced a beautiful boy, Hewston."
The 96.9 FM presenter says losing his daughter made him all the more grateful for his two sons.
