While sitting with her husband in the video clip, Sheena said: ‘Last time I went to the doctor to get my coil fitted, he said to me ”now just so you know this is probably the last time you’ll have this because you’ll be going through the menopause and won’t need it any more”.
‘And it was such a ”right this is it grandma”. At that point was the only time that I actually went ”oh right you mean me? I’m gonna have to go through the menopause”, confessed the star as she recalled her moment of realisation.
‘So what do you know about it?’ asked Shane, to which his wife admitted: ‘Not a lot, in fairness. My only experience of the menopause was through my sister.
‘She had to go have a hysterectomy really early, before her body was even ready to even think about menopause, and that threw her into early menopause.’

Back in August 2020, it was reported that Shane had got back together with Sheena after splitting during the UK’s Covid-19 lockdown.
The couple who have been married for 13 years went through marital difficulties with Shane leaving the home.
Speaking to the Irish Sun the singer said: ‘Nobody wants to get divorced, least of all me. Myself and Sheena are not divorced, we are not separated – we are just going to work on our relationship, because relationships need to be worked on.
‘I am committed to family and my wife. I love her dearly and hopefully we will be together for many years in the future.

‘Life can be a struggle and marriage is not easy,’ he added. ‘Relationships can be difficult certainly in periods of time like this.
‘I’ve got two beautiful children and a beautiful wife and I’m back home right now’.
Speaking on actor Paul Danan’s Morning After podcast, the Dublin native said: ‘We have had difficult times and are going through difficult times right now in this isolation thing.
‘I’m not even in my family home right now because me and her were at each other’s throats. It wasn’t a good time or a good space.’
