Jaime King is the kind of woman who seems to excel at everything she does, and we do mean everything. She was the toast of the fashion world at 16, scored her first major film role in the blockbuster Pearl Harbor at 21, and by her mid-twenties was a highly-in-demand young actress.
Then, at 28, Jaime married director Kyle Newman, and six years later she gave birth to the couple's first child, a son, James Knight Newman. What Jaime never revealed however, is that she suffers from infertility, and that it took a lot of hard work and patience, and she had to endure a whole lot of pain, to make her dreams of having a child become a reality.
The actress detailed some of what she went through on her Instagram account Friday, writing, "For all the struggling women & moms out there that think they are alone – This is the truth about conceiving my son and struggles. After 8 yrs of pain and undiagnosed PCOS & Endometriosis,
"9 doctors until Dr. Randy Harris diagnosed me & saved my life from a severe ectopic, 5 miscarriages, 5 rounds of IVF, 26 IUI's, most with no outcome, 4½ years of trying to conceive, 26 hours of brutal labor, early delivery b/c of sudden preeclampsia, tearing and tearing after the stitches were in once I was home, milk supply issues, painful mastitis, uncontrollable crying while breast feeding, worked until the day before I [gave] birth and went back after 6 weeks after because I was afraid of letting others down."

How amazing of Jaime to use her platform and popularity as a celebrity to detail all that she went through, and, as a result, help others who are going through the same thing know they are not alone.
