After the previous issue that sparked from talent manager Lolit Solis’ social media post about Alex Gonzaga’s miscarriage, Alex herself has finally decided to open up about the heartbreaking experience.
On 17 October, the actress posted several photos on Instagram, including a pregnancy stick showing the celebrated two lines, husband Mikee Morada giving a kiss to her belly, and to their hospital visit, and revealed that she found out that she was pregnant two months ago before the bad news came.
“3 weeks ago, we got a heartbreaking news that we might be having an anembryonic pregnancy (blighted ovum). Our doctor advised us to wait for the process to naturally take its course. So, we had to wait for a while for the pregnancy to finally end before we can tell our story,” she posted.
“The waiting and praying tested our faith and there were a lot of crying. 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 said that they decided to share the story to give hope to couples who are going through it or who might have gone through it.
“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. 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,” she added.
Fans and friends alike took to social media to send their condolences and encouragement, including actress Heart Evangelista, who herself had experienced miscarriage back in 2018.
