A gorgeous model-actress and all-around good sport, Kelly Brook won over many fans with her grounded, self-deprecating view on her unique talents and fame. Born Nov. 23, 1979 in Rochester, Kent, Engla...
Actress and model Kelly Brook has opened up about her double miscarriage in a candid new autobiography. In an extract from Close Up, published in Monday's (01Sep14) issue of The Sun, the British stunner breaks her silence about the devastating tragedies when she twice fell pregnant while dating ex-boyfriend Thom Evans.
In her new book, she details the nightmare of her first miscarriage, which began when she woke up in a pool of blood in May, 2011 and found herself in labour.
She writes, "I sat up and immediately my waters broke. I was only six months pregnant - this was not supposed to happen. I called an ambulance and said, 'I think you'd better come'. I was very scared and felt something was seriously wrong."
Brook's baby girl was stillborn hours later.
She recalls, "Thom and I spent a lot of the time crying that week. Ironically, something that had been such a shock and so unplanned had become something we'd both been desperately looking forward to."
Taking her doctor's advice, she and rugby player Evans began trying to conceive again, and when the model fell pregnant a second time weeks later, she kept the baby news secret.
Brook explains, "I got pregnant again. The look on Thom's face said it all. I think he was terrified. It seemed like he was reluctant and given our experience I got that. It was like, 'Here we go again'. And, indeed, we did go again."
The double heartache of two miscarriages eventually drove her and Evans apart - and they called off their engagement.
Brook's big reveal in The Sun comes as her name appears on a list of female stars who have had nude photos stolen from their iPhones and leaked on the Internet.
She joins fellow Brits Jessica Brown Findlay and Cat Deeley, among others, who have fallen victim to an Apple iCloud hacker.
Kelly Brook's tell-all memoir will finally be released on 11 September (14).
The British actress/model will spill secrets about her series of high-profile romances, including her seven-year relationship with Hollywood hardman Jason Statham. The book, titled Close Up, was originally slated for 2013.
"I like him just coming back from the gym. I like the sweat smell to be honest. I think that is the best smell on a man - natural." Model/actress Kelly Brook wants her fiance, former Gladiators star David McIntosh, to steer clear of deodorant.
British actress/model Kelly Brook has postponed her wedding to David Mcintosh. The pair became engaged in March (14) just three months after they met at a New Year's Eve party (31Dec13), and Brook has now revealed she planned to wed the former Gladiators star in September (14), but their wedding plans have been put on hold.
She tells Britain's Star magazine, "We were going to get married next month, but we had to postpone because of my TV show and his work commitments. We don't want to rush it... We talked about running away and doing it in Italy, but I keep changing my mind."
It is not just the wedding that comes second to work commitments, but motherhood too.
Brook explains, "Obviously one day when I'm blessed enough, I'd love to have a child. But at the moment, it's all just work, work, work."
Hollywood actress Liv Tyler has found love with David Beckham's close friend Dave Gardner, according to a U.K. report. The Armageddon star, who is divorced from British rocker Royston Langdon, is believed to have struck up a romance with sports agent Gardner, who has previously been linked to Kelly Brook and Rita Ora, earlier this year (14).
A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper the couple was introduced by supermodel Kate Moss, adding, "This is the real deal. Dave and Liv are madly in love... They've actually been an item for quite a long time, but have gone to great lengths to keep it a secret."
Tyler has a son with her ex-husband, while Gardner was previously married to British actress Davinia Taylor. Beckham was best man at Gardner's wedding.
British actress and model Kelly Brook has joined Demi Lovato as a global ambassador for U.S. footwear firm Skechers. Lovato will appear in the company’s global marketing and social media campaigns through 2016, while Brook has been named the new face for Skechers women’s footwear collections. She becomes the first non-American star to represent the company globally.
Kelly Brook's fiance has been given a major career boost. Former TV Gladiator David McIntosh, who became engaged to the British model/actress earlier this year (14), makes a topless cameo appearance in Jennifer Hudson's new music video for single Walk it Out.
British model/actress Kelly Brook was stunned when her boyfriend proposed after only a few weeks of dating, and even gave him the chance to back out. The brunette beauty became engaged to David McIntosh, a former star of British TV show Gladiators, in March (14), just three months after meeting him at a New Year's Eve (31Dec13) party.
Brook now admits she was blindsided by the "surprise" proposal, calling it the "the most humbling, beautiful moment of my life," but she wanted to make sure her boyfriend was serious before accepting.
She tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "I saw this beautiful diamond ring and I think my first reaction was, 'Are you sure?' He assured me he was, so I said 'Of course I will.' He slipped the ring on my finger and we kissed... It was so genuine."
Brook adds of her marriage plans, "I think it took both of us by surprise, to be honest, how quickly things have progressed... But I've never met a guy like David before and although it seems soon to be planning our wedding, there's nothing to wait for in my mind because at the moment everything's fantastic and there's no reason why it can't continue to be like that... I never thought I was going to be that girl who wants the huge dress with a 10-foot train, but now I want the biggest, most gorgeous dress ever."
Former pop star Rachel Stevens has been voted the sexiest woman of all time by readers of U.K. men's magazine FHM. The ex-S Club singer saw off competition from the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Brook and Jennifer Aniston to top the poll, which marks 20 years of the annual countdown.
British actress/model Kelly Brook has sparked speculation she is a married woman after mentioning her "husband" in a cryptic online post. The Piranha 3D star dropped a number of hints about her relationship status in a series of cryptic messages posted on Instagram.com on Friday (30May14).
In the messages, which were posted while Brook was onboard a Eurostar train between London and Europe, she called her partner David McIntosh her "husband" and mentioned "wedding celebrations".
She wrote, "Look how happy my husband looks... #Eurostar #France #WeddingCelebrations."
Brook tagged two friends, who are due to marry on Saturday (31May14), in the post, suggesting she and McIntosh are on their way to celebrate their pals' nuptials, but she did not explain why she called her fiance "husband".
The pictures she posted show the couple smiling and hugging on the train, and enjoying a lunch of pastries, chocolate, beer and cheese.

A gorgeous model-actress and all-around good sport, Kelly Brook won over many fans with her grounded, self-deprecating view on her unique talents and fame. Born Nov. 23, 1979 in Rochester, Kent, England, Kelly Ann Parsons achieved fame as a teenage model, whose shapely figure and sweet personality made her a hot commodity around the world. The face of multiple high-profile products and a magazine mainstay, Brook nabbed hosting jobs on "The Big Breakfast" (Channel 4, 1992-2002), "Love Island" (ITV, 2005-06) and "Britain's Got Talent" (ITV, 2007- ). She herself competed on such programs as "Strictly Come Dancing" (BBC One, 2004- ). Romantically linked to Jason Statham and engaged to Billy Zane at one time, Brook also began lining up acting jobs, recurring on "Smallville" (The WB, 2001-06; The CW, 2006-2011) as a mysterious woman bent on seducing and destroying Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum). She went on to appear in "The Italian Job" (2003), "School for Seduction" (2004), "Romy and Michele: In the Beginning" (ABC Family, 2005), "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo" (2005) and "Piranha" (2010), where she played a kind-hearted adult film actress who tragically proves delicious to the titular fishes. Usually lighthearted and unsinkable, Brook made sad headlines in 2011 when she and boyfriend, rugby star Thom Evans, suffered a miscarriage.<p><i>By Jonathan Riggs</i>
