Chrissy Teigen was one of the most recent celebrities to undergo a miscarriage and take away the stigma of the pain and experience that comes along with it. Rather than hiding it in her private life as many would, this brave celeb parent shared a heartbreaking caption, part of which read:
“To our Jack — I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you.” Here are other celebrities who courageously opened up about their own miscarriages.
1. Michelle Obama
Even the strongest women have their vulnerable moments. When she was on Good Morning America in 2018, our ex-FLOTUS opened up about her miscarriage two decades prior, and the common feeling many women share that they have failed, and are “somehow broken.” She then shared that Sasha and Malia were born through IVF.
In her and Jay-Z’s HBO documentary Life is But A Dream, the couple shared a rare story about the miscarriage they experienced before Blue Ivy. She said that when she was pregnant for the first time, her baby’s heartbeat was “the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life” but then she went for a checkup, and the heartbeat was gone. It turned into a bittersweet music writing experience that was a “form of therapy” for Bey.
3. Alanis Morissete
In 2019, Alanis shared her struggles with SELF magazine. Between her two children, Ever and Onyx, she claims that there were “some false starts.” Although she learned about her body, “and biochemistry and immunity and gynecology” these lessons came with lots of loss and perseverance.
