Theresa May admits ‘a sense of loss’ at not being able to have children

Prime Minister Theresa May has admitted not being able to have children has been ‘a sad time’ for her and her husband, Philip

Mrs May admitted her heartache of being involuntarily childless during an election interview on LBC earlier this month.

She said: “It’s been very sad. It just turned out not to have been possible for us.”

She added: “Of course we’re not the only couple who found ourselves in that situation and when you do I suppose you just get on with life.”

Mrs May, 57, has been married to her husband Philip for 32 years and said he had been a great support in those years.

When she was Home Secretary, she spoke of not having children in an interview in the Daily Telegraph in 2012, when she said that it would be impossible not to feel a ‘constant sense of loss’.

She said: “You look at families all the time and you see there is something there that you do not have.

“It just didn’t happen, I mean, this isn’t something I generally go into, but things just turned out the way they did.”
