Laura Govan Reveals Miscarriage: “I Was Pregnant With My 5th Baby”
Social media has become a vehicle for celebrities to get up close and personal with their fans. A more recent example of this is former “Basketball Wives LA” star Laura Govan’s decision to reveal that she suffered a miscarriage.
“I wanted to share something with U guys and why I’ve been out of the loop, well #NRealLife for the past three months I’ve been sick, and extremely exhausted and about a month ago I found out that I was pregnant with my 5th baby, which I thought was impossible,” Govan told fans on Instagram.
When she lost the baby, the reality star says that she became withdrawn.
“Unfortunately, I had a miscarriage. When it happened I didn’t want to talk about or deal with it, but now I’m ready to get my life back on track!”
Apparently, her reason for sharing the news was to get fans to join her on her new fitness journey, and also to explain why she wasn’t communicating with them as frequently as she usually does.
“I gained a good 15 pounds during this rough time in my life. I want you to rock with me as I take this journey of losing the weight and getting ME back …. because this is something REAL that happens every day to women like you and me and it’s real easy to feel alone, confused and unsure about how to handle or deal with the struggle.”
She also took a moment to thank relatives and friends who supported her during the unfortunate experience.
“Thank God for my REAL friends and family who allowed me to do me and take some time away to get back to focus. #inRealLife I’m so thankful for all your support …. Let’s get it … And Thank You for the LOVE.”
We’re sad to hear that Laura had this experience, but at least she’s trying to move forward in a positive and constructive way.
