Susan Sarandon’s Daughter Eva Amurri Martino Suffers A Miscarriage
It is a sad day for Susan Sarandon as her daughter Eva Amurri Martino has suffered a miscarriage during her second pregnancy. She was nine weeks pregnant when she lost her baby; she is mother to Marlowe Mae who just turned one. Eva made the big reveal about her second pregnancy at Marlowe’s first birthday bash but sadly, she is now having to retract all of that and share what should be a happy time, rather now a sad time. Eva made the announcement regarding the miscarriage earlier this morning on her blog Happily Eva After, where she revealed the sad news, which she learned at a recent ultrasound. This was supposed to be a happy summer for the actress however it took a pitfall and Eva is just focused on making the time she has with daughter Marlowe the best, in an attempt to ease the pain.
“Most of all, I have a healthy and happy daughter who I can hold in my arms and whisper in to her ear how much I adore her and how blessed I feel that I was lucky enough to bring her in to the world. I have so much,” Eva blogged. But she also did not shy away from the pain of the miscarriage and how she found out that she was no longer with child: “At my next visit for a routine ultrasound, however, the baby’s heart was no longer beating. Just like that, it was all over. What was so shocking to me is how common miscarriages are, versus how little I hear them talked about. I’m not sure if this is because people are ashamed to suffer this loss, or whether the loss is simply too painful to share (I can see how this could be the case also).”
We applaud her bravery for coming out and sharing her story. She also added that the miscarriage was caused by “developmental problem with the fetus.” But, as mentioned before, Eva is keeping her chin up and focusing on the good in her life: “To anybody enduring similar heartache, I will tell you what I’m feeling and processing as a result of this loss: A lot of confusion, some anger, deep sadness, and also an immense amount of gratitude. I have realized in the past forty-eight hours how incredibly grateful I am for the magic that I have in my life.” We wish her and her family the absolute best during this difficult time.
