Actress Eva Amurri Martino revealed this weekend that her family has suffered a great loss. Eva, who is also the daughter of Susan Sarandon, shared that she had a miscarriage. She took to her blog to share the heartbreaking news. Eva wrote, “It’s with a lot of heartache that I tell you Kyle, Marlowe, and I have some sad family news to share. I am sharing in the hopes that we can be a light for people going through similar circumstances, and to remind myself and others that there is no shame in voicing our heartbreaks and allowing others to comfort us. A couple of days ago, the baby I was carrying passed away. I was nine weeks pregnant.”
Eva says they were excited and nervous about the thought of a second child but they were joyful. They even shot some “big sister” photos with daughter Marlowe, 1, while they were on a trip to Hawaii. She shared, “Towards the end of our trip, I began to experience some spotting, but once I returned to Los Angeles, I got the all-clear from my doctor. We heard the heartbeat on multiple occasions, and watched our baby growing at a normal rate. When we celebrated Marlowe’s birthday, we shared the news with our families and closest friends. At my next visit for a routine ultrasound, however, the baby’s heart was no longer beating. Just like that, it was all over.”
In the rest of the blog entry, she lays her heart wide open to share her pain with others who may be going through the same thing. You can read Eva’s words here.
Our thoughts go out to Eva and her family.
