Former Las Vegas and Beverly Hills, 90210 star Vanessa Marcil has suffered a miscarriage. The news was shared via a statement in an Instagram post published by a representative on behalf of the actress. This heartbreaking turn of events comes just three months after Vanessa Marcil announced she was expecting a baby with her fiance, who she has only referred to on social media as "MC."
"Our hearts are with Vanessa and MC who have lost baby OPM [Our Precious Miracle]," the statement, which accompanies a shot of Marcil and MC kissing, reads. "Thank you for respecting their privacy as they heal and thank you for sharing all of your personal stories. You are not alone."
In November, Marcil had shared news of her pregnancy with followers, noting that she had endured six pregnancy losses prior. Marcil's openness and effort to reassure women who've been in the same position is surely appreciated. After all, miscarriage is still stigmatized in a way that makes it difficult for many women to share their experiences and grieve openly.
As she grapples with this most recent, devastating loss, we can only hope that Marcil and her fiance are given the privacy they seek and time they need to heal.
