Just two months after debuting her pregnancy, former Danity Kane singer Aubrey O’Day has revealed the heartbreaking news that she has suffered a miscarriage.
“I’m beyond heartbroken to announce that I’ve had a miscarriage,” Aubrey shared with E! News. “This isn’t my first pregnancy, but it is the first time I was mentally healthy and in a physically prepared place to care for another life.”
The singer and reality star has been open about her desire to become a mother, and the devastating loss has left her at times feeling like she’s the one to blame.
“I’ve had moments where I’ve internalized what happened,” she continued, “and blamed myself but luckily I realized there isn’t only one seat at the table.”
Aubrey hopes that through her struggles she can help other women who have suffered a tragic loss, and she is open to being their “sounding board.”
“I also want all the women out there in the world that have experienced this grief to feel all the love my soul has to offer, and more importantly remain reminded that we are here to support each other!” the Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars contestant continued. “So, if you need someone to talk to, reach out to me on Instagram [@aubreyoday] and I will be your sounding board and someone you can confide in.”
On Monday, March 6, Aubrey posted a message to her Instagram addressing the loss.
“I wouldn’t change anything,” she wrote. “I think that it’s important to let things happen and stay ‘happened’. People change so you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they are right… And sometimes things you want most fall apart so that better things can fall together.”
“Everything happens for a reason,” she concluded, “love u my lil one.”
Aubrey also reached out to her followers, letting them know she’s seen all of their heartfelt messages and they’ve been a light during her dark time.
“I love you all. Thank you for the sweet ‘baby Aubrey’s about to be a force to be reckoned with’ messages,” she told E!. “I smiled every time I saw them, and you know that is a straight fact!”
