Vanessa Marcil has announced a tragic piece of news:
The veteran actress has suffered yet another miscarriage.
The former Las Vegas and Beverly Hills, 90210 star confirmed this sad development on Instagram, sharing a photo of herself and her fiancee (who she refers to as “MC”) kissing on the beach.
Reads a statement below this sweet image:
“Our hearts are with Vanessa and MC who have lost baby OPM.
“Thank you for respecting their privacy as they heal and thank you for sharing all of your personal stories.
“You are not alone.”
She certainly is not. The numbers vary every year, but approximately 15-20 percent of all pregnancies in the U.S. end in a miscarriage.
As you can see down below, this awful situation has also afflicted many famous celebrities.
Back in November, Marcil shared with her social media followers that she was pregnant, but also noted that caution was needed.
She wanted her fans to celebrate along with her, yet also knew everyone had to be wary,
“After six miscarriages we are saying prayers for OPM,” Marcil wrote at the time.
Earlier this month, meanwhile, the actress confirmed on her Instagram page that she was expecting a daughter, posting a photo of her puppy Rocky snuggling close to her owner’s baby bump.
“The GIRLS,” she captioned the moment.
Marcil does share a 15-year old son named Kassius Lijah with ex-boyfriend and co-star Brian Austin Green
The actress and her fiance, whose identity she chooses to keep secret, got engaged in April of 2015.
She was previously married to Corey Feldman from 1989 to 1993; and also to actor Carmine Giovinazzo from 2010 to 2013.
“V has had a miscarriage. Our second one this year,” Giovinazzo wrote under Marcil’s Twitter account in December 2011, adding:
“Thanx for the love and prayers.”
This has tragically been an issue that has plagued Marcil for many years.
Along with the aforementioned television shows, soap opera fans likely recognize the actress from her lengthy run as Brenda on General Hospital.
She has also appeared on Crossing Jordan and Without a Trace.
We send our thoughts and prayers to Marcil and her fiance during this difficult time.
