Rebecca Adlington marks first wedding anniversary after devastating miscarriage

Rebecca Adlington has shared a heartfelt message to her husband Andy Parsons to mark their first wedding anniversary – a day after revealing she had suffered a miscarriage.

The former Team GB swimmer, 33, is believed to be still in the hospital recovering from sepsis, a kidney infection, and a fever after tragically suffering a miscarriage earlier this week.

In the post, she refers to her husband as "the love of my life" and "my everything" while she recovers from the loss of their third child.

Sharing a photo from the pair's wedding to her Instagram, Rebecca wrote: "Happy anniversary. You are the love of my life, my everything. I know I can get through anything with you by my side. You are simply the best."

This comes as the gold medallist shared a photo of her in a hospital bed to her 105k Instagram followers on Saturday, where she revealed the pregnancy and miscarriage.

The news came after she went into the hospital for her 12-week scan, where she had to undergo emergency surgery after doctors discovered she had miscarried.

She was sent home on Thursday, but had to be readmitted to treat sepsis, a kidney infection, and a fever.

Captioning the post, which showed her in a blanket and holding a cup of tea, she wrote: "On Tuesday me and Andy went to hospital for our 12 week scan only to discover we’ve had a miscarriage which resulted in emergency surgery.

"I managed to leave hospital Thursday only to be readmitted Friday. After a day of treating sepsis, a kidney infection and a fever I’m slowly on the mend. Long way to go but I’m in the right place.

"I can’t thank the hospitals and the staff enough, been so supportive. It’s such a devastating time but important in times like these we remember we aren’t alone and have so much support.

"@andrewparsons5 you have been my rock this week. Same with family and friends. We haven’t managed to process it all yet but I know with their support we’ll get through it.

"Once I’m able to leave hospital I’m extremely grateful I get to go home and give my 2 little ones the best hugs!"

Rebecca is already mother to two children, sharing her 18 month old son Albie with Andy and seven year old daughter Summer with professional swimmer Harry Needs, whom she divorced in 2016.

The Team GB athlete received many supportive messages from fellow athletes, including Adam Peaty, who wrote: "Sending all my best, so sorry to hear it" along with heart and praying emojis.

Meanwhile, Dame Kelly Holmes wrote: "So sorry to hear this. Sending so much love and hugs Xx".
