Italian model Elisabetta Canalis, who dated George Clooney for more than a year, has revealed she suffered a miscarriage.

The 35-year-old was expecting her first child with her partner Brian Ferri later this year and opened up about her devastation on her WhoSay account.

"Unfortunately, life gives you… a reality that you do not expect," she said.

That is very hard to accept, even if you think you are strong enough and prepared."

She suffered the loss on Friday.

"You're never really ready to be told that there is no more beating [heartbeat] and that it had already stopped long ago.

"I just want to say to all those women who are going through it to stay strong," she added

"Life goes on and it is nobody's fault and nature acts in incomprehensible ways. We can only accept it. I just want to say that I feel you close, if you are suffering as I am doing. We can't deny it, it's like an incessant sorrow you can't get rid of."

"I know I'm lucky because I have a special man next to me that I wish all to have," she wrote. "The future is full of surprises and happiness and there's a lot of hope, I keep on believing in it."
