Last October 9, politician Mikee Morada called out entertainment reporter Lolit Solis who claimed that Alex Gonzaga was keeping the news of her miscarriage for an "exclusive vlog" and alleged that the actress is "making a business out of the sad news."
Today, October 17, Alex finally breaks her silence to confirm the sad news that she had lost their baby due to a blighted ovum. "Hi. 2 months ago we found out that I was pregnant and 3 weeks ago, we got a heartbreaking news that we might be having an anembryonic pregnancy (blighted ovum)," she wrote in an Instagram post.
Also called an anembryonic pregancy, Webmd.com explains that a blighted ovum "occurs when a fertilized egg implants in the uterus by doesn't develop into an embryo." Alex then further explains that they kept the news to themselves first due to the advice of their doctor as they wait for the end of the pregnancy.
"Our doctor advised us to wait for the process to naturally take its course. So we had to wait for awhile for the pregnancy to finally end before we can tell our story. The waiting and praying tested our faith and there were a lot of crying," she said.
Alex also shared that during this ordeal, they held onto hope that things would turn around. "Every day we were clinging on to a miracle that an embryo would still appear but last Tuesday (Oct. 12), the Lord’s will prevailed and we finally closed the book of our first pregnancy," Alex wrote.
She also says that they're now sharing their story "to give hope that in the midst of this pain and loss the Lord will always sustain you." Alex adds, "To any couple who’s going through this or who might go through this pain, don’t ever lose hope. It’s not your fault this happened. At your own pace you can start to grieve and heal. Mikee and I held on to our Lord Jesus to prepare and help us accept our situation. He blessed us with a kind of LOVE that is ready to understand. We know that in His perfect time He will bless us with our ultimate desire."
Alex also wrote a touching message to the baby they lost and to the people who have shown support to them as a couple. "To our baby whom we almost had, thank you for giving mommy and daddy joy even for a short span. Lastly, thank you to everyone who gave us time to heal."
