Harry Judd and wife Izzy open up over 3-year baby struggle

The McFly drummer and his wife turned to IVF after polycystic ovary syndrome stopped them conceiving naturally


McBusted drummer Harry Judd and his wife Izzy have opened up about their struggle to have a baby. The couple have been trying for a baby since their wedding in 2012 and are now expecting their first baby in January.


“You feel like you are never going to be the ones who get to say, ‘We are having a baby’. That is why we feel so blessed now,” 29-year-old Harry told Hello! magazine.

Izzy, 31, was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries in her twenties and suffered a miscarriage from their first attempt at IVF last year. “I never wanted to stop believing that we would have a family,” she said. “But you do feel like someone has pressed pause on your life and you can’t go anywhere.”

And Izzy felt heartbroken every time someone asked her if she wanted to have children. “This was always so impossible to answer and felt like my heart was breaking every time,” she said.

“In an ideal world when you’re ready to start a family you hope you will conceive in the first few months of trying,” said Harry. “We were like, no, no we won’t need IVF, it won’t be us. IVF was like something you didn’t talk about. We thought it would be fine.”

But after a first failed attempted, the couple are now expecting a baby through IVF. Describing the moment she watched the embryo being implanted, Izzy said: “It was such a clinical environment but there was such magic in the air.”

Congratulations both!
