The loss of a child is unfathomable — and for Elisabetta Canalis, it’s an unfortunate reality.
The 35-year-old TV presenter, who dated actor George Clooney from 2009-2011, revealed she has suffered a miscarriage.
She posted about the situation on her WhoSay account and is offering her support to other women who are going through the same thing.
“Unfortunately, life gives you ... a reality that you do not expect, and that is very hard to accept, even if you think you are strong enough and prepared. You're never really ready to be told that there is no more beating [heartbeat] and that it had already stopped long ago,” writes the beauty, who was expecting her first child with boyfriend Brian Perri. She was due to give birth in the fall.
“I just want to say to all those women who are going through it to stay strong because life goes on and it is nobody's fault and nature acts in incomprehensible ways.”
She continues, “We can only accept it. I just want to say that I feel you close, if you are suffering as I am doing. We can't deny it, it's like an incessant sorrow you can't get rid of.”
She goes on to say she feels “lucky” to have Brian by her side during the painful time.
“I know I'm lucky because I have a special man next to me that I wish all to have,” Elisabetta explains. “The future is full of surprises and happiness and there's a lot of hope, I keep on believing in it.'
