Former U.S. soccer goalie Hope Solo is expecting twins, a boy and girl, with husband, former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens.

The two time Olympic gold medalist broke the news about her impending arrival during an appearance on BeIN Sports.

She shared: “My husband and I get to practice equality from the very beginning with one boy and one girl — miniature soccer team on the way.”

The two-time Olympic gold medalist also retweeted a post of the video clip alongside two baby emojis.

Solo had previously shared publicly that she and Stevens suffered a miscarriage of twins in 2018 — an episode she told Elle magazine in June almost became fatal to her and left her “hours from dying.”

Solo had one of her fallopian tubes removed due to an ectopic pregnancy.

 

Shortly after the 2018 miscarriage, Solo told Elle magazine she started In vitro fertilization.

Solo and Stevens got married in 2012, and recently celebrated their seventh anniversary.

Congrats!

3 Real Housewives of Potomac Stars Who Shared Their Miscarriage Loss Stories With Fans

Editor’s Note: I’m reposting this article because the old one, published a few months ago, has a fatal technical error and in light of National Rainbow Baby Day recently, I wanted to reshare it!

“I really don’t think I fully dealt with my miscarriage until until I found out I was pregnant again,” an emotional Monique Samuels shares during a testimonial to last Sunday’s new episode of Bravo TV‘s Real Housewives of Potomac. “The fear and the loss just came back to me so I really had to just sit back and leave it in God’s hands”

These comments were made during her testimonial in between scenes of a party she threw last year before the birth of her third child last year, celebrating her Rainbow Baby.

A Rainbow baby is a sustainable pregnancy or live birth following the loss of a previous pregnancy or baby.

FYI: A “Unicorn baby” is one that is birthed after infertility.

About her decision to host a celebration, the wife to ex veteran NFL legend Chris Samuels: “I thought this was a good way to celebrate new life to not forget it but to learn from it and move on,” she added.

During the episode, Monique referred to her miscarried child as “her angel baby” and later released several doves in the air in honor of all the other Angel babies out there.

“I know a lot of us women share the same story and a some of us don’t choose to express and share with others but I encourage us to because there’s healing in sharing, ” she added before opening up the mic later for other women in the audience to share their stories.

During the event, her cast mate Ashley Darby, who is currently pregnant accepted the opportunity to speak about having a miscarriage at age 19 and a more recent one with her restaurateur and businessman husband, Michael Darby.

Michael broke down in tears and actually left his wife’s side at a guest table temporarily.

Another castmember of the show, Katie Rost, also is familiar with tragic pregnancy loss.

Rost, a Housewife from Season 1 and currently a “friend of the Housewives” Season 4, suffered a late term miscarriage around 4-5 months of pregnancy.

She was pregnant with her fourth child with her boyfriend, a man named Jacob, earlier this year when she miscarried.

According to an Instagram social media post by Rost, Jacob infamously snapped a highly disturbing and graphic bathroom photo of Rost laying on the floor shortly after the loss happened.

She posted the photo on her Instagram page before taking it down, but not before the gossip press got their hands on it and made it a story.

While in a vulnerable state, snapping a pic is not kind but I do not want to judge her decision to then post such a private and sacred moment on social media but yeah, that’s a heavy situation.

Rost is currently involved in a bitter custody dispute with her ex husband James Orsini over visitation rights with her children, son, James Rocco Orsini and twin daughters Renee Rost Orsini and Kathryn Rost Orsini who she lost full custody to. She has previously accused James of being mentally, physically and financially abusive to her.

Editor’s Note:

I could relate to Samuels’ later comment on the show about living in fear after getting pregnant again.

After I lost my first ever pregnancy about 17 years ago, my husband and I were extremely anxious and scared our second would end the same, with another loss.

We even went as far as purchased a portable ultrasound so we could constantly monitor the baby’s heartbeat anytime we wanted without having to go to the doctor’s for an appointment.

Now baby Samuels, Chase Omari, is here and Baby Darby is on the way and with a gig as a Friend of, hopefully Rost is in a better place and getting more support.

TODAY show Meteorologist On Pretending to Be OK After Miscarriage

Dylan Dreyer and husband

Great news for TODAY show meteorologist Dylan Dreyer who just announced that she is expecting her second child after revealing earlier this year that she suffered a miscarriage.

Dreyer is already mom to 2-year old son Calvin whom she shares with husband since 2012 Brian Fichera, but opened up in a big away after show co-host Jenna Bush Hager announced her third pregnancy, and co-anchor Hoda Kotb revealed she had adopted a second baby girl.

“I’m devastated, and I have to go to work on the ‘Today’ show and be happy and smiling and pretend like nothing’s wrong,” she recalled. “We push [emotions] down and get through the show, I go to the doctor and they do an ultrasound. The baby’s still in there. It’s fluke bleeding.”

It is quite refreshing to see more people in the public eye open up about miscarriage and infant loss given how the topic has been hush hush taboo and pretty mush an unspoken topic publicly before.

“I just want people to know that, yeah, I’m kind of going through it with you,” she said.

Bravo and Kudos and Congrats on the impending arrival!

It’s another boy, she revealed on set with her castmates!

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Shay Mitchell Expecting After Miscarriage

She also released the news in an emotional YouTube video titled “Guess Who’s Preggers.”

“When you’re in the public eye there are some things you want to just keep a secret until you feel ready,” Shay said of her decision to keep her pregnancy hush hush. “This for me has been the hardest. This is gonna be really fun and awesome when I’m not trying to hide it anymore.”

In the video, Mitchell talks about all the steps her glam team took to hide the pregnancy.

Now the news is out, she is going to be sharing the journey.

RHOP’s Ashley Darby is Expecting After Miscarriage

We called it! (well kinda)

Real Housewives of Potomac star Ashley Darby is expecting her first child with her husband Michael Darby.

She shared the news with her fans and followers on Instagram fans on Tuesday.

“Very excited to share this special news with you my loves,” she captioned a video announcement of herself and Michael that ended with a sonogram and the baby’s due date, July 2019. “Michael and I are thrilled to welcome a bundle of joy into our lives. The most incredible gift imaginable! Love and light to you.”

She gave up the deets to PEOPLE magazine.

“I’m so excited,” the “OZ” Arlington, Virginia restaurant co-owner gushed with the magazine. “When I used to hear people talk about having a child and the miracle of life inside you, I know that sounds great, but then to actually experience it? It’s the most all-encompassing feeling ever. I never imagined I’d feel this much love … it’s the pinnacle!”

This news came right after she suffered a miscarriage last year as well.

“At the time, I didn’t fully understand the magnitude of how it would affect us as a couple and as individuals because we kind of thought it would be a given that we would just be able to have children,” the reality TV star added. “But it was challenging.”

The former Miss District of Columbia added the miscarriage, “was such a traumatic experience,” but credits her husband who is already a dad of two adult children, ages 24 and 27 from a previous relationship, for getting her buy.

“It was very impactful for him because he understands the feelings of being a dad,” the UUniversity of Maryland alum shares. “It was so new to me, but he could help me through that.”

It’s also after a rough patch documented between season two and three of the hit Bravo TV show. The couple had separated and Ashley was living in her own apartment in VA.

The news of the second pregnancy came as a total surprise.

“We found out in the beginning of November,” she revealed in the magazine. “I had just been healing out of it and I thought I was getting sick because of the change of season. I wasn’t feeling too well. Something just told me to take the test, really not expecting a positive result. And then lo and behold, there were two solid lines.”

There is a Bravo TV baby boom given that Real Housewives franchise creator Andy Cohen just welcomed his first child, a son Benjamin, via surrogate.

The Darby’s co-star Monique Samuels just had her third child, son Chase. Over at the Real Housewives of Atlanta, alum Kenya Moore welcomed her daughter Brooklyn Doris last November while RHOA Friend of the Housewife Shamea Morton Mwagani had her first child, a daughter too, Shya Nyambura, while current Housewife Porsha Williams is expecting her first daughter too.

Real Housewives of Orange County alum Gretchen Rossi announced she and husband Slade are expecting their first child together as well.

Michelle Obama Had A Miscarriage, IVF at Age 34, Memoir Reveals

Michelle Obama reveals in her upcoming new book that at age 34, she and President Barack Obama went through the in vitro fertilization (IVF) process when they couldn’t’ conceive through traditional means.

Inside her memoir, “Becoming“, to be released this upcoming Tuesday (pre-order yours today), she opens up in a way she couldn’t before when she was married to the leader of the Free World and she really goes in deep and personal.

In an advance copy given to the Washington Post, she revealed how she had to give herself the necessary shots when her husband was off fulfilling his duties in the state Legislature.

“I felt lost and alone, and I felt like I failed,” she told Robin Roberts in an interview that ran Friday on Good Morning America. “I didn’t know how common miscarriages were, because we don’t talk about them. We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken.”

Of those who had a miscarriage, 37% felt they had a lost a child, 47% felt guilty, 41% reported feeling that they had done something wrong, 41% felt alone, and 28% felt ashamed, according to a 2015 study CNN cited.

In opening up this way, the former First Lady is showing to the world that she is no different from other women who have suffered in silence. She also pointed at the social stigma of miscarriage and blamed it for why more women do not open up about their loss.

“The biological clock is real because egg production is limited. I realize that now because at 34 and 35, we had to do IVF.” she shared.  “I think it’s the worst thing that we do to each other as women, not share the truth about our bodies and how they work and how they don’t work.”

The former law firm attorney looks to want to inspire and encourage others because her struggles, they came out on top and with two beautiful children to boot.

“Too many young couples who struggle…think there is something wrong with them,” she added during the interview, saying she wants them to realize people like her and her husband, who are considered couple goals have dealt with it.

It’s great that she is using this opportunity to commiserate with those who have lost and struggled with infertility.

Watch bits of the interview here and she talks about miscarriage about 1:08

Carrie Underwood Had 3 Miscarriages in 2 Years

Opening up, Carrie Underwood, who is expecting her second child with husband Mike Fisher, revealed in a new interview on Sunday, September 16, that she suffered three miscarriages in two years.

“I’d kind of planned that 2017 was, you know, going to be the year that I work on new music, and I have a baby,” the country crooner, who is mom of 3-year-old Isaiah, told CBS Sunday Morning. “We got pregnant early 2017, and didn’t work out.”

The Grammy winner went on to say that she suffered a third miscarriage the following year. “Got pregnant again, early 2018. Didn’t work out. So, at that point, it was just kind of like, ‘OK, like, what’s the deal? What is all of this?’”

The “Cry Pretty” singer admitted she wrestled with her emotions following her losses. “I had always been afraid to be angry,” she said. “Because we are so blessed … I’m like, ‘If we can never have any other kids, that’s OK, because [Isaiah] is amazing.’ And I have this amazing life. Like, really, what can I complain about? I can’t. I have an incredible husband, incredible friends, an incredible job, an incredible kid. Can I be mad? No.”

Still, she says she got angry after what she thought was yet another miscarriage in her current pregnancy. “I got mad … I was like, ‘Why on Earth do I keep getting pregnant if I can’t have a kid? Like, what is this? Shut the door. Like, do something. Either shut the door or let me have a kid. ‘And for the first time, I feel like I actually I told God how I felt.”

RHOP Star Monique Samuels is Expecting After Miscarriage

Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels is expecting her third child after suffering a miscarriage which was revealed on the hit Bravo Tv show.

The mom of two opened up about the loss never anticipated the outpouring of support on an April episode of the series, filmed the prior year.

“When I first shared my story, I didn’t even realize how many people had experienced miscarriages before,” she told PEOPLE magazine. “It was amazing to have that support and to realize that I wasn’t alone. And to show so many of these women too that they can get through this.”

Samuels announced that she and her NFL veteran hubby Chris Samuels are expecting another baby — due Dec. 3. But although Monique says she feels “blessed” to add another member to her family, she said the miscarriage has changed how she feels about her pregnancy.

She said she is more cautious and frightful that things could go wrong.

“It kind of haunts you,” she admitted to the site. “The first times I was pregnant, it came so easily. I took that for granted. Now that I’m pregnant again, it’s almost like I second guess everything that I’m doing. Even with movement. I’m making sure I’m not moving too fast so I stretch my stomach. It’s something I didn’t think about with my first two pregnancies.”

congrats!
