Heart Evangelista opens up about most recent miscarriage
Filipino TV personality Heart Evangelista experienced a second miscarriage just a month after she announced that one of the twins she was carrying did not develop further. Despite the news, Heart continues to remain strong and positive, even grateful for all the love and support she has received from family, friends, and community of followers.
Heart broke the news of the miscarriage on Instagram where she wrote that as they were approaching their third month of pregnancy, her doctor found that the baby’s heart had stopped beating.
“Doctor told me that there really wasn’t anything we could’ve done, that this happens to a higher percentage of first time moms,” Heart wrote on her Instagram photo of the white flowers she offered to their baby.
Heart says she doesn’t question God despite such trying times, always trusting that things happen in their most perfect time. With this, she has made it clear that she will be taking some time off to recuperate.
She already had a name in mind, Mira, and referred to that name towards the end of her caption, “My Mira, funnily enough, I already loved your smile. I know you’ll find your way back to me.”

There are not enough words to express how heavy my heart feels but I know it’s important to share this because it’s part of my motherhood journey. At this week’s Doctor appointment, just as we hit the 3 month mark, we found out that her heart stopped beating. For some it might be early on but for us, we were so ready to meet you, little one. Carrying you made me feel like a completely new person. Just the thought of you taught me what unconditional love feels like. The Doctor told me that there really wasn’t anything we could’ve done, that this happens to a higher percentage of first time moms. I know this is true because so many of you have been open with sharing your experiences. Your kindness and positivity in sharing about your own miscarriages remind me to be strong. I am so grateful for all your love throughout this entire journey. It’s not the end, just another chapter. I take comfort knowing that you’re up there with your twin. I don’t question God about this sad time, I trust in His timing and plan. I hope you all understand that I’ll be taking some time off but your support and kind words will be felt, even if I’m not able to reply. I’m not looking for answers, just peace. For what it’s worth, I already had a name for you. My Mira, funnily enough, I already loved your smile. I know you’ll find your way back to me.
