The ambitious business woman and star of the TV3 documentary Ireland's Fittest Mum is fast becoming a household name. After competing in the World Beauty Fitness and Fashion event in Las Vegas in August, Louise was snapped up by agents, sponsors and publicists, all wanting to work with her.

However, the road to success wasn’t easy.

In 2008 Louise hit rock bottom during an extremely turbulent year, following the death of her son Ashton at less than two months old.

She spent the following three years in a depressed state, becoming extremely overweight and unhealthy.

 “It never gets easier and it never goes away,” Louise revealed in an episode of Ireland’s Fittest Mum.

"There’s never a day that goes by that I don’t think about him, that I don’t miss him. I know we only had him for five and a half weeks but I miss him every day.

“It feels like yesterday for me. When it comes up to his birthday and anniversary it’s just so raw,” she said.

Her son died after contracting a rare bug.

The mum revealed that the gym offered her a lifeline and has helped her move on after the tragic loss.

“Fitness changed the way I was able to cope with things and maybe that’s what sticks me and Jordan together. It’s the reason why I’ve gotten through all of this,” she said.

The star of TV3’s newest reality show revealed that her daughter Jordan (16) inspired her to live life to the fullest after the family lost baby Ashton.
