Former 16 & Pregnant star Ashley Salazar’s dream of raising a baby herself have sadly been shattered.
In a new interview, Ashley revealed she thought she had a normal pregnancy until her doctor discovered she had a “blighted ovum,” which basically meant she had a “growing” stomach that had no embryo.
“I was prepared [for the worst], because at my eight-week checkup the doctor told me I was only measuring at six weeks,” Ashley revealed to Radar. “The doctor told me I was going to have a miscarriage and that there was nothing I could have done to prevent that.”

Fans watched Ashley in 2010 as she decided to give up her first born, Callie – now 4 years old – for adoption. Fast forward to the present, Ashley announced the news on March 25 that she was expecting her second child with her longtime boyfriend Justin Lane.
“Even though I was upset, I know everything happened for a reason,” she said. “We had tough times in our relationship but this clearly wasn’t the right time to have a baby.”
