"That changed things and it made us realise that was definitely what we wanted," she said.

"Situations like that can really test your relationship and when you go through something that's really horrible you see how the other person deals with stuff and how they support you and how you support them. It just made us closer and stronger...

"We're very fortunate that it happened again for us. We weren't putting pressure on it and I was trying not to put pressure on myself and then it just ended up happening that way for us. It was obviously just meant to happen."
