Actress Alex Gonzaga has confirmed she suffered a miscarriage, as she thanked everyone who gave her and her husband Mikee the time to heal.
Gonzaga broke the sad news on Instagram Oct. 17.
Her full post:
“Hi. 2 months ago we found out that I was pregnant and 3 weeks ago, we got the 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 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.
“Everyday we were clinging on to a miracle that an embryo would still appear but last Tuesday, the Lord’s will prevailed and we finally closed the book of our first pregnancy.
“We share our story to give hope that in the midst of this pain and loss the Lord will always sustain you. 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.
“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 💔 “
