Whitney Port ‘s 2021 is off to a tragic start. In a heartbreaking social media post, The Hills: New Beginnings star revealed that she suffered a miscarriage a few months ago — her second one in the past two years.
“Hey, Everyone. This is not an easy one,” the 35-year-old captioned a video via Instagram on Monday, January 4. “We decided to start vlogging for our YouTube channel a couple months ago to share two stories: Renovating a new house and a new pregnancy journey. Sadly, I lost the pregnancy. Timmy and I weren’t sure if we still wanted to put this out there.”
She continued, “I wasn’t sure I wanted to relive the pain. However, this time around, I felt differently about the situation. Last time, I don’t think I was ready to have another child, and I had different feelings about the miscarriage. This time, I really connected. I was actually excited and enjoying the pregnancy. I envisioned it all. I’m sad but I’m ok and we will try again.”
The MTV star, who thought she was having a baby girl, acknowledged that she has “so much sadness in my heart for anyone that has to go through this or has gone through this.”
“I know though that our community will share, band together and support— cause you always do,” she said. “We ended up putting the footage into 5 mini episodes and plan to post one a day, today — Friday. Love you guys. link in bio.”
Immediately following the sad news, Port’s Instagram post was flooded with supportive comments, many from her famous friend and co-stars.
“I’m sorry, Whit. Sending you guys love,” reality star turned fashion designer Lauren Conrad wrote.
Port’s The Hills: New Beginnings co-star, Ashley Wahler also added, “I’m so sorry! Sending so much love your way.”
Sadly, this isn’t the first time the Whitney Eve designer has had to deal with the loss of a pregnancy. Back in 2019, the blonde beauty, who shares three-year-old son, Sonny, with husband, Tim Rosenman, revealed she has suffered a miscarriage.
“When I miscarried, I felt fear and anxiety picturing what was happening inside my body. I felt incomparable sadness imagining another version of my little Sonny and wondering what that baby would have been like,” the doting mom said at the time. “I felt relief, and then shame for that relief, and then confusion over that shame. My miscarriage happened at an incredibly high-stress time in my life, and while we would have loved that baby with all of our hearts, I actually felt better when I learned I wasn’t pregnant. I struggled to reckon with what that relief said about me as a person and a mom, and I was afraid to even share those thoughts with my husband.”
Despite her heartache, Port revealed she was not “giving up” on having a second child.
