A Place In The Sun presenter Jasmine Harman spoke candidly last month about her desire to have children but underwent a six-year struggle to conceive. The Channel 4 presenter welcomed her daughter Joy and son Albion, who she shares with her husband Jon Boast, via IVF treatment but explained it was not as straightforward when the couple tried for a third baby.

Jasmine explained that the treatment was a success during their first trial of IVF.

The 46-year-old decided to freeze her eggs for when the pair chose to have another child but added it was not “plain sailing”.

Ahead of her treatment, doctors discovered a benign tumour on her ovary, which is also referred to as a cyst.

She explained: “I had a few issues, with an ovarian cyst, they call it tumour, but it was completely benign.

“They wanted to check that before I could go for IVF.”

Thankfully, Jasmine said that just two weeks after her 38th birthday the couple welcomed Joy.

However, when they tried for a second child it didn’t initially “work out”.

She went on: “I had no side effects at all, I got pregnant at the first cycle and had three embryos frozen, the next time we tried it didn’t work out.”

The TV star said it was her third attempt she got pregnant with her second child, son Albion.

“The third time we tried with a frozen embryo – that was Albion – I always tell him that he was frozen,” Jasmine remarked.

But the couple then went on to try for a third baby but admitted they were not successful in expanding their family.

“And the fourth time, we also tried and didn’t survive the thawing,” the Channel 4 presenter shared.

“So it wasn’t completely plain sailing, but we are very grateful to only have to have one cycle and have two lovely children,” Jasmine added on the Made By Mummas podcast in March.

Jasmine met her husband of 13 years, Jon, on the set of A Place In The Sun where the latter worked as a cameraman.

The couple have since welcomed daughter Joy and their son Albion.

The Channel 4 star also shared that she had previously been “completely blasé” about having children until she met her other half.

The small-screen star often posts fun family snaps via her social media accounts.

Speaking candidly about her relationship, Jasmine recalled: “We met on the very first episode. Jon was the cameraman, and we were just working together for the whole of the first series.

“It was Jon’s first TV job too, so Jon and I were both thrown in together.

“It was a slow burner and we just fell in love. We became really good friends and that has been the basis of a really good relationship.”

A Place In The Sun airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 3pm.
