Ben Foden's wife Jackie reveals tragic miscarriage as she hits back at cruel troll | The Sun

BEN Foden's wife Jackie Belanoff-Smith has revealed she and her husband have suffered a tragic miscarriage.

The American spouse of the rugby ace opened up about the devastating loss as she hit back at a cruel troll on instagram.

The actress and entrepreneur, 37, responded to a vile message on the social media platform that criticised her appearance and compared her unfavourably to Ben's ex, Saturdays singer Una Healy.

Jackie hit back: "I was pregnant for a while so I haven't had Botox in a while so I haven't had Botox in a while, just had a miscarriage last week, and my 2 year old has sleep regression so I haven't slept in a million years."

She continued: "I apologise if my old haggard appearance bothers you. I noticed you don't have any photos of yourself though… but you're probably just too ridiculously good looking for people to even have the privilege of witnessing."

The post was the first time Jackie has revealed she was pregnant.
