Rebekah Vardy reveals stress of Wagatha accusations could have caused early labour

Rebekah Vardyhas spoken about the impact the “Wagatha Christie” trial had on her in a new TV interveiw.

Rebekah, 40, spoke on TalkTV for a segment titled “Coleen & Me”, which is the first time she’s spoken since shelost the libel trialthat she brought againstColeen Rooney, 36.

The show featured many emotional moments and one in particular came when the wife ofJamie Vardyopened up about the impact the stress had on her while pregnant with youngest daughter Olivia.

Host Kate McCann asked her if she had days when it got “too much” and she didn’t want to get out of bed.

Rebekah told her: “It did, but then I blame myself for that isolation because when you’re going through this without being pregnant might have been a different thing.

“Then you add all the pregnancy hormones into everything and the emotions that come from that. I was trying to be mum to the four children that were here.”

She added: “I had to try and protect my baby as well because I had been told, in no uncertain terms, that if this stress didn’t calm itself there was a real high probability that I was going to go into preterm labour.”

An emotional Rebekah added: “That really scared me”.

The interview came days after it wasannounced on Friday 29 Julythat Rebekah lost her legal battle with Colleen after their high-profile trial in May.

Coleen accused Rebekah ofleaking stories about her to the press through her Instagram account.

The two women waited eight agonising weeks to hear the verdict of the case, and nowRebekah has opened up about having PTSD from the outcome.

Speaking toThe Sun, Rebekah revealed that she had been admitted to hospital twice to be treated for mental health issues since the original post in 2019.

She said: “I was having serious panic attacks, I had kidney stones which were brought on by stress, and I just felt like my life was falling apart. Physically, emotionally and mentally it was exhausting."

Rebekah added: “It was draining. I had to go to hospital a couple of times because they were really worried about my mental wellbeing. And since the court case, I think I’m probably suffering with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).

“I feel physically sick when I talk about the trial and what happened, and I have nightmares.

“I haven’t gone to get a diagnosis yet but I do know I probably need some more therapy. It’s been a horrible time.”
