Only a few days after announcing she was pregnant, Heart Evangelista-Escudero updated fans with devastating news: she has lost one of her babies.
Apparently, the actress didn’t realize she was having twins until she underwent sonography.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the actress shared:
“During our first ultrasound we were a mixture of excitement and nervous(ness) 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,” she added.
Then she dropped the bombshell.
“Unfortunately one of the embryos was smaller and behind in terms of development and so we lost one of the twins.”
Although saddened about the matter, the actress said, “Our hearts were heavy at the thought but we knew we had to focus on the good.”
“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.”
She then thanked her husband, Senator Francis ‘Chiz’ Escudero, whom she said has “really has been my partner through it all.”
“There is no one else I would rather do this with…”
