Andrea Corr was praised for opening up about her struggles with fertility on The Late Late Show on Friday night.
The singer recently revealed that she suffered multiple miscarriages in her memoir, and spoke about those painful times during her interview with Ryan Tubridy.
Andrea said she suffered two miscarriages before welcoming her two children, Jean and Brett Jnr, but sadly she suffered three more after she had them.

She explained: “It was painful because you’ve got that hope, you immediately dream of this baby, it happens so quickly it’s crazy how our minds are, and our hearts. And then for that hope to crash, it’s hard.”
Despite her pain, Andrea said she’s “so lucky” to have the two kids she shares with her stockbroker husband Brett Desmond.
After watching her interview, many viewers took Twitter to praise Andrea for being so brave.
Such a Wonderful lady. Refreshingly honest… brave and true…. it’s so hush hush… like depression, its something on one talks about and can literally change a person’s life when you do… well done Andrea.

Watching Andrea Corr on the Late Late is so humbling. I met the band eons ago and they were lovely! I can all but relate to her losses she experienced through miscarriage and we should all be talking about them more openly. Thank you #andreacorr #TheLateLateShow @RTELateLateShow

Andrea Corr has just gone up in my estimation. 5 miscarriages can’t have been easy. Well done on her coming through that 👏 #LateLateShow
