Fertility problems can be very stressful for many people, "especially when it looks like everything is going to go well on platforms like Instagram," said Johnson.
"I found it very comforting to hear from people who have also suffered a loss, and I hope that in a small way it can help others to share this as well."
The former Conservative Party spokeswoman and Boris Johnson married in May 2021. They already have one child: their son, Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas, was born in late April 2020.
For 57-year-old Boris Johnson, the boy is at least the fifth child.

He is also said to have an illegitimate daughter;
during his marriage to Wheeler he was said to have had several affairs.
