The famous British actress tried until the age of 55 to get pregnant
After the heartbreak of nine miscarriages and two ectopic pregnancies, many women would have given up hope of having a baby. But Amanda Redman is not one of them, report from Daily Mail. She is so determined to add another member to the family that she refuses to let anything stop her from trying … until nature finally did not interfere.
The actress revealed that recently she entered the menopause, which forced her to concede defeat and finally to abandon her dream of a baby.
I would have given birth at 52, 53 or 54 years, without thinking, if I could, says Amanda, who turned 55 this month. But the fact that it is impossible forced the actress to finally surrender. “But the important thing is that I tried to the very end,” she said.
The star has a 25-year-old daughter, whose name is Emily, from her previous marriage to the actor Robert Glenister. Today she is married for Damian Schnabel, who is 15 years younger than her. The new husband tried to stop the desperate attempts of Amanda, but she did not give up. He said to her that he does not want to try to have a baby anymore, but the stubborn actress continued.
Amanda, however, still keeps a secret the way she was trying to conceive – naturally or with in vitro fertilization. The actress, who recently announced her retirement from the detective series of the BBC “New Tricks”, said that menopause had a greater impact on different areas of her life – including her hair, which had begun to fall.
