With a beautiful baby daughter, a devoted husband and a world title to her name Angela would appear to have it all. But the 25 year old revealed that she has battled against ‘sadness and negativity’ and that these feelings left her feeling ‘hopeless and defeated’.

It just goes to show that absolutely anyone can have issues with their mental health. Angela message to her huge fanbase is that:

‘I’m sharing this because I want people to see that there is no shame in sharing your struggle’.

She does finish on a more uplifting note though, admitting that whenever she is having a bad day the smile of her ‘beautiful daughter’ Ava Marie makes life seem a lot easier.
