The 40-year-old actor, who is a recovering alcoholic, caused concern over the weekend when he was escorted out of Dublin Airport by security after being too intoxicated to board a flight to Vancouver, Canada and his spouse Mara Lane has now revealed his erratic behaviour stemmed from their recent tragic loss.

Alongside an image of a woman bent down to stroke a lion, which was shared on the pair's joint Instagram account, Mara - who has son Wold, eight months, with the 'Tudors' star - wrote: "9/7/17 Forever Young With much sadness, we open our hearts to share that J and I lost our second child, who was baking in the oven. Child was very very much wanted (right now especially by J, so he took the news particularly not so well) and we are still working with coping skills over here... when life throws us curve balls such as these. (sic)."

Despite the 'Velvet Goldmine' star's apparent relapse, Mara praised Jonathan for being the "strongest person" she knows and thanked those who had expressed their concern and sent good wishes.

The post continued: "Depression is a real concern from past abuse as well as alcoholism which he was born with. He has been able to turn any ugliness and hurt in his life into art and is the strongest person I know. I do not know anyone who has been through what he has been through and reached his level of successes. It does seem though that every time we seem to be making so much progress... sometimes it's like two steps forward, one step back.

"Thank you family and friends and all of you lovely kind beautiful people who send us good energy and thoughts and support. It is so appreciated. I have so much love for you.

"To some others, my husband is an Irishman who battles alcoholism and depression and drank between jobs to try to cope with the sadness of this news. I am trying to and still learning/adjusting to living with the public, like one would as a concerned mother-in-law. I feel that whomever took photos of my husband was slightly in the wrong and was concerned for the wrong reasons but ... it's ok. It's ok. Maybe you have/had a family to feed and need/needed money? I don't know. We forgive you. (sic)."

Despite the airport incident, Mara has reassured fans her spouse is "safe" and is doing his best to get sober again after previously being denied help.

The post concluded: "He is safe and with his sober living companion and bodyguard to get into a detox closer to home since he was denied hospital help twice in Ireland because of an already two month wait period.

Life is life. Life is beautiful. Life is tough sometimes though so let's try not looking down at someone unless we intend on helping them up.

Sending love to those in Texas, Florida, India and Mexico with all the natural disasters going on.

"We are both so sensitive and the past couple of weeks have been so ouch in our hearts for all humans and animals affected. With Love, M&J (sic)."
