MANILA, Philippines – “We were so ready to meet you.”

Actress Heart Evangelista shared heartbreaking news on Wednesday, June 6, telling followers that her baby’s heart stopped beating 3 months into her pregnancy. 

“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 appointment, just as we hit the 3-month mark, we found out that her heart stopped beating,” she said. 

“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,” she added.
