Our Infertility Heartbreak
British Foreign Secretary William Hague has spoken for the first time about his "strong" marriage to his wife of 13 years, Ffion — in a bid to stop "hurtful speculation".
The Conservative politician gave a highly personal statement designed to counter allegations that he had an affair with a male aide.
In it, Mr Hague revealed that the couple "would love to start a family" — but have been blighted by infertility problems.
"Sadly this has proved more difficult for us than for most couples," he said.
"We have encountered many difficulties and suffered multiple miscarriages, and indeed are still grieving for the loss of a pregnancy this summer."
