Only five months after Hilaria experienced her first miscarriage in April, she announced the exciting news of fifth baby, in September.

After revealing that she was excepting a girl, it was during her 20-week ultrasound that her doctors revealed the tragic news about her miscarriage.

"It's been an interesting experience being a part of this effort of removing stigma about pregnancy difficulties and loss. Opening up and sharing began as protective measures against industries attempting to monetize elements of my life."


Despite facing backlash from trolls who found her very personal and regular updates about her miscarriage to be "annoying," she says:
