Claire Sweeney: announces pregnancy on Twitter

Former Brookside actress, who had a miscarriage two years ago, tweets her delight at being 5 months pregnant


Claire Sweeney took to Twitter this weekend to tell the world she’s 5 months pregnant.


“The BEST news is I’m 5 months pregnant!!” the former Brookside actress tweeted.

Claire had a miscarriage two years ago, in 2012, when she was 12 weeks pregnant and engaged to marketing entrepreneur Daniel Riley.

But just recently, Claire, who’s currently starring in her new theatre show Sex and The Suburbs, confirmed she’d called off the engagement.

“When we lost the baby, I was very philosophical about it,” she said of her miscarriage last year. “It wasn’t meant to be. Things weren’t right.”

But later that year, the 43-year-old admitted she still wanted to start a family.

“Who knows what is around the corner?” she told one newspaper. “I am hopeful that it will happen but you cannot predict the future so there is no point worrying.”

Congratulations Claire!
