Former “Vanderpump Rules” star Kristen Doute shared that she has suffered a miscarriage.

While recording the November 26 episode of her podcast, “Sex, Love, and What Else Matters,” alongside her boyfriend, Luke Broderick, Doute revealed she realized she was pregnant in late October 2023.

“It was the best f***** day of my life,” said the “Vanderpump Rules” alum.

Doute stated she visited Broderick, who lives in Colorado, after letting him know that she was expecting. According to the 40-year-old, she experienced “some light bleeding” toward the end of the trip, which concerned her.

“When I bled a little bit, I was just, of course, thinking the worst things in the entire planet, right? The worst case scenarios,” said Doute.

Doute stated that she underwent blood work to check on the progress of her pregnancy. Broderick said the test results indicated that her “progesterone was a little low.” He also stated that Doute was prescribed progesterone to help “keep things moving along.”

In addition, Broderick said Doute’s third ultrasound showed that her “pregnancy [was] not a viable pregnancy.”

“It’s considered a blighted ovum. There is no embryo in the sac that’s forming,” said Broderick.

He went on to say that Doute has “some choices” on how she wants to proceed with the situation.

“Nothing has happened yet. The three choices are a D and C [dilation and curettage], which is a surgical removal. Option two is to wait and see, just for it to happen naturally because your body will eventually reject it,” said Broderick.

Doute interjected that the third option is medication “that will intervene and help induce the miscarriage.”

The “Vanderpump Rules” star also stated that she and Broderick plan to try to get pregnant again. In addition, Broderick said he was hopeful he and Doute will eventually have children.

“If nothing happens in whatever period of time that my doctor — well he said, I think, up to three or four months. Normally he would give someone a year, but he said because of my age he was like, ‘Well, maybe we’ll have a conversation before that,'” said Doute.
