Heart Evangelista reveals she initially carried twins
As Heart Evangelista shared the first ultrasound photo to her followers on Instagram, she was both ecstatic and somehow heartbroken. The ultrasound revealed that she had a twin pregnancy and that they lost one of the twins.
One of the embryos was significantly smaller than the other and had failed to develop. Heart captioned the Instagram photo of the ultrasound, “This is the first photo of the twins where you can see the other embryo who is healthy and showing more positive signs of development.”

During our first ultrasound we were a mixture of excitement and nervous but nothing could prepare us for what we would learn. We found out that I had a TWIN PREGNANCY. My sister has twins but I never imagined that I would be able to have twins as well. Unfortunately one of the embryos was smaller and behind in terms of development and so we lost one of the twins. Our hearts were heavy at the thought but we knew we had to focus on the good. This is the first photo of the twins where you can see the other embryo who is healthy and showing more positive signs of development. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about Motherhood this early on it’s that it won’t always be sunshine and butterflies, sometimes there will be cloudy moments. But it’s these ups and downs that I know will make me a stronger Mom. We now have a little angel up there and I trust that God is with us on this beautiful journey. I have to thank my wonderful husband who really has been my partner through it all. There is no one else I would rather do this with…❤️(Some of these things happened weeks ago way before we announced, I’m just sharing this now.)
“We now have a little angel up there and I trust that God is with us on this beautiful journey,” Heart wrote. Even as these heavy moments unfurled in front of them, Heart and her husband Chiz Escudero are positive that they will stay strong. “Our hearts were heavy at the thought but we knew we had to focus on the good,” she added.
The 33-year-old Filipina actress also shared that her sister had twins and that Heart ‘never imagined’ she would carry twins herself.
Last May 12, Heart Evangelista announced her pregnancy on Instagram through a simple photo of her and Chiz, with Heart holding a white baby onesie. “The greatest of blessings all in God’s perfect timing! Our beautiful family just got a little bigger. We can’t wait to meet you little one,” she wrote.
