In an Instagram post today, June 6, Heart Evangelista announced that she suffered a miscarriage.
"There are not enough words to express how heavy my heart feels but I know it’s important to share this because it’s part of my motherhood journey. At this week’s doctor's appointment, just as we hit the three-month mark, we found out that her heart stopped beating," Heart wrote in the caption of a picture of her hand holding a flower.
"For some it might be early on but for us, we were so ready to meet you, little one. Carrying you made me feel like a completely new person. Just the thought of you taught me what unconditional love feels like. The doctor told me that there really wasn’t anything we could’ve done, that this happens to a higher percentage of first time moms. I know this is true because so many of you have been open with sharing your experiences. Your kindness and positivity in sharing about your own miscarriages remind me to be strong.
"I am so grateful for all your love throughout this entire journey. It’s not the end, just another chapter. I take comfort knowing that you’re up there with your twin. I don’t question God about this sad time, I trust in His timing and plan. I hope you all understand that I’ll be taking some time off but your support and kind words will be felt, even if I’m not able to reply.
"I’m not looking for answers, just peace. For what it’s worth, I already had a name for you. My Mira, funnily enough, I already loved your smile. I know you’ll find your way back to me."
Heart announced her pregnancy on social media on May 12, the day before Mother's Day. Shortly after, she also revealed that she was orginally carrying twins but that "one of the embryos was smaller and behind in terms of development and so we lost one of the twins."
"We now have a little angel up there," Heart previously wrote.
