A famous fitness model has shared her grief after her fifth child was stillborn.
Sophie Guidolin (33) from the Gold Coast announced on Wednesday that she had given birth to her late daughter Pixie.
‘I cannot begin to articulate my pain, sadness and despair throughout my entire soul,’ she wrote in an emotional Instagram post, revealing that she had undergone a C-section.
‘I try to trust in God’s timing and I have always believed that the universe has my back and no matter how confusing it all feels, I try to make sense of this grief with my faith.
‘I feel so guilty about my thoughts before and I would do anything to have that pain, about this harrowing experience. I don’t even have the words on how to write or how to understand it.

“Maybe some souls were always meant to be angels.”
Ms Guidolin, who has developed a following of almost 550,000 by sharing her nutrition tips and fitness training, struggled throughout her pregnancy with Pixie.
The mother was stricken with hyperemesis gravidarum, which is when pregnant women experience severe vomiting and nausea that can last for days.
The disease can lead to dehydration, weight loss and vitamin deficiencies.
On January 8, Ms Guidolin shared a photo of herself in hospital on a drip.

“This pregnancy has almost officially gotten the better of me,” she wrote.
‘I’m so exhausted, I’m so sick.
“An example today is a beautiful 30C day, (my husband) Andrew is on a boat with friends, my girlfriends are out for lunch, (my son) Ryder is going to the movies…. All while lying in the hospital on a drip.
‘I just want my life back, or at least the basics. The simple things that are so normal in everyday life that I currently struggle to do – showers even make me seasick.’
In another post just days ago, the model shared a photo of herself at the beach with her daughter, while another photo showed her clinging to a puke bag.

“Before I go back to the hospital tomorrow morning, pulled out of a dark hole to see the ocean and the kids,” she said.
“I lasted about 20 minutes in the heat, sun and public display of being sick.”
The mother previously said she wants her followers to know her life is not ‘all sunshine’.
Ms Guidolin announced her pregnancy in mid-December, just a month after marrying her doctor husband Andrew Firgaira.
