Whitney Port has revealed that she suffered a miscarriage.
In a new post shared to Instagram, the 35-year-old The Hills: New Beginnings star shared the heartbreaking news with her 1.4 million followers. Whitney captioned footage of swaying palm trees and the sky with the news of her personal tragedy.
“Hey, Everyone,” she wrote. “This is not an easy one. We decided to start vlogging for our YouTube channel a couple months ago to share two stories: Renovating a new house and a new pregnancy journey. Sadly, I lost the pregnancy. “
Whitney added that she and her husband, Tim Rosenman weren’t sure if they wanted to put their story “out there” because she didn’t want to relive the pain. The star, who shares a 3-year-old son, Sonny with her husband of five years, ultimately decided to move forward and share her story, as well as the vlogs she started about her house renovation and pregnancy.

“It’s all you can think about,” she said during a scene filmed with co-star Kaitlynn Carter, according to ET Online. “It’s like a death is happening inside your body and you’re also supposed to show up for your child that you have and you can’t really be sad in front of them, and you’re just confused if your feelings are okay [or] if they’re too dramatic.”
She added that the thought of the death of something that you haven’t met yet “feels silly, but it’s not, because it’s you.”
“It’s a part of the love you have with your husband and it’s just heartbreaking,” she told Kaitlynn.
At the time, Whitney candidly recalled that she wasn’t sure if she would ever be ready for more children.
