Doctors operating on her at the time had found that she also had endometriosis, which makes it difficult for women to conceive.

"It was all very dramatic and frightening. A terrible shock. I lost two litres of blood and had to have two transfusions," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

"The doctors saved my ovaries but they said that to stand a chance of having children I had to conceive within five years, before I was 30," she added.

The 'Pushing Daisies' star gave birth to Gracie in 2005, aged 28.
