While their tenure has been anything but smooth sailing, the couple has now revealed that they signed up to help them cope with the very sad loss — something they have been open about in the past.

“We had a pretty rough time,” Ankur told Yahoo Lifestyle during a recent interview. “We went through a personal issue [and] we had a late-term miscarriage. So that really threw us for a six.”

“We wanted to do something to get out of our comfort zone. Sharon and I definitely have an interest in renovating.”

Even though they’ve faced racial trolling and numerous accounts of “PTSD” from the show, Sharon admitted that they thought it would be an “adventure” at the time of applying.

“It was like an adventure,” she said. “After Covid, we did the whole ‘f*ck it’ when it came to anything,” she said.

Sharon Johal Previously Spoke About the Miscarriage and Her Decision to Freeze Her Eggs

Back in August, Sharon — who is of Indian descent — opened up about losing her baby in order to help “normalise” the conversation.

“Everything I share is for a reason because miscarriages aren’t spoken about,” she told Refiner29 Australia.

“The fact that I froze my eggs and I’m in a happy marriage is not spoken about.”

She continued: “I also believe, married or not married, you can do what you want, and you should be supported by your community.”

Furthermore, the former Neighbours star admitted that both she and her husband “come from backgrounds where our families keep their secrets”.

“They don’t tell anybody, and they hide sh*t from other members of the community,” she said.

“They don’t go and get counselling, and they don’t see therapists because they’re like, ‘We don’t want people to know what’s going on in our family.’ That’s definitely the family I grew up with.”
