In some sad news to begin this year, reality star and businesswoman Whitney Port has shared that she suffered a second pregnancy loss, presumably sometime last year.
"This is not an easy one," Port, who suffered her first miscarriage in 2019, wrote on Instagram on Monday. "We decided to start vlogging for our YouTube channel a couple months ago to share two stories: Renovating a new house and a new pregnancy journey. Sadly, I lost the pregnancy."
"Timmy and I weren't sure if we wanted to put this out there. I wasn't sure I wanted to relive the pain. However, this time around, I felt differently about the situation. Last time, I don't think I was ready to have another child, and I had different feelings about the miscarriage. This time, I really connected. I was actually excited and enjoying the pregnancy. I envisioned it all."
She concluded: "I'm sad but I'm ok and we will try again. I also have so much sadness in my heart for anyone that has to go through this or has gone through this. I know though that our community will share, band together and support – cause you always do."
Port and her producer husband Timmy Rosenman are already parents to three-year-old son, Sonny Sanford.
In the first of their YouTube vlogs shared Monday, the former Hills star tells her husband, "I'm enjoying being pregnant so I can relax and not feel guilty about it … but I'm also ready to have the baby so I can be in charge of my body and what I put in it, and not ever have to have any anxiety about getting pregnant ever again."
Whitney and Timmy have been delivering much-needed pick-me-ups over the past while via their series of 'reactions' videos to old episodes of The Hills and The City, of which Whitney starred in.
