When Heart Evangelista made public her pregnancy in May, she promised to be open about her motherhood journey.

Sadly, in June, some weeks after revealing she was having a twin pregnancy, and that one of them had died, Heart suffered another miscarriage, making her lose the other twin whom she had named Mira.

“It was a traumatic experience,” she told Bulletin Entertainment recently. “What happened to me was no joke. I felt I was stuck in a blackhole. I was very depressed that no amount of anything can make me happy.”

The actress also shared that one midnight, she found her husband Senator Chiz Escudero crying over the unfortunate incident.

Heart said they are moving on while still coping with the loss one day at a time. Amid the heartbreak, she doesn’t question God about it. Instead, she remains hopeful and strong, taking comfort in knowing that pregnancy taught her what unconditional love is all about.


At the moment, Heart said having another pregnancy is not on their utmost priority. The 33-year-old said she and Sen. Chiz know that “it (having a child) will happen when it happens.”

“Maybe we’ll try again next year. Hopefully, we’ll get lucky,” she said. “The good thing is that we already have two kids at home. So I just want to trust in His timing and plan.”

Sen. Chiz has two kids from a previous relationship, and they are Joaquin and Ma. Cecilia.

Heart is busy with several projects, including a collaboration with Kamiseta. The brand launched a clothing line featuring her paintings.

Hollywood beckons?

Sometime July, the actress and now-vlogger revealed she auditioned for the Hollywood film “Crazy Rich Asians,” and almost got a role.

That said, speculations are rife on whether or not she would join the cast of either of the next two film adaptation of books, “China Rich Girlfriend” and “Rich People Problems.” Both are authored by her good friend Kevin Kwan, who also wrote “Crazy Rich Asians.”

“There’s nothing (offer) yet as of now,” she said.

Speaking of Kevin, he and Heart were in Paris together last July. She shared her experienced being featured in “Harper’s Bazaar,” an American women’s fashion magazine, with the Singaporean-American author.

Back then, Heart was dubbed as the “real crazy rich Asian.”

“To be honest, I questioned myself being there,” she humbly said. “When they (producers) asked me if I shop couture, I said, ‘Yes, but not the extremes one. Did you know that each gown there costs 20 million above?”

Despite being a style-icon, Heart said she is not the type who “blows off her lifetime savings for one dress.”

She shared, “So I told them, I had to call Kevin because I don’t think I’m the girl you’re looking for. I told them, ‘I don’t want to disappoint you because if you think I’m gonna shop ‘till I drop, I won’t be doing that.

“They were nice enough to say that they appreciate my honesty and they still want to feature me for attending shows and for my love of paintings and bags.”

On a different note, Heart also showed support to her husband’s political plans. Chiz will be running for a gubernatorial post in the province of Sorsogon.

Should he win, several reporters teased Heart if she’s now ready to be the “First Lady of Sorsogon.”

She simply smiled.
