Amanda Holden, who tragically lost her baby son seven months into her pregnancy in February, has said she and her family are 'pushing forward'.

Writing on her Twitter page, the Britain's Got Talent judge said that although they will 'never, ever forget' their baby son, the family are 'starting to smile again'.

Amanda last tweeted in February, thanking fans and well-wishers for the 'thousands of messages offering support and love during this horrendous time'.

Amanda and her partner Chris Hughes chose not to reveal the news of their pregnancy until Amanda was six months along, as they had suffered a miscarriage in 2010. They said at the time they had wanted to get the 'all clear' before going public with their happy news.

However, on February 5th, the star's spokeswoman Alison Griffin was forced to reveal the devastating news that the couple's son had died after Amanda went to hospital concerned she had not felt the baby moving. Ms Griffin told the press at the time: 'Amanda had been closely monitored throughout her pregnancy and it is not yet known what went wrong.'

A friend later told the press Miss Holden was 'unable to function' due to her loss and would 'never be the same again'.

However, today, Amanda wrote on Twitter that things were starting to get a little brighter for the family, which includes her and Chris's five-year-old daughter Lexi. She wrote: 'Getting stronger every day. Will never, ever forget. We are pushing forward as a family and starting to smile again x'.
