Our hearts go out to Vanessa Marcil, who sadly announced she has suffered her seventh miscarriage. The General Hospital star shared the heartbreaking news on social media just three months after announcing she was pregnant.
“Our hearts are with Vanessa and MC who have lost baby OPM,” her statement read. “Thank you for respecting their privacy as they heal and thank you for sharing all of your personal stories. You are not alone.” Earlier this month, she revealed she was expecting a baby girl via an Instagram photo of her new puppy, Rocky, snuggling against her growing baby bump! “The GIRLS,” she captioned the super cute pic.
This past spring, the actress was also asking fans for help in choosing a dress for her wedding to fiancé MC, and on Nov. 13, she revealed that they are adding to their family! “It’s baby time,” Marcil shared on Instagram. “After six miscarriages we are saying prayers for OPM.”
Marcil has one son, 15-year-old Kassius, from a previous relationship with Brian Austin Green. And her fiancé, MC, has a daughter, Riley. Vanessa has found success in primetime series like Beverly Hills, 90210 and Las Vegas as well as Lifetime movies like The Wrong Mother, but she will always be beloved to General Hospital viewers for her Emmy-winning role of Brenda Barrett. And while fans would love to see Vanessa back in Port Charles — and a recent Twitter exchange between her and Maurice Benard (Sonny) led many to suspect a comeback was in the works — with an upcoming wedding and a baby, Vanessa might be too busy to reprise her fan-favorite role.
Our hearts go out to Vanessa and her family during this difficult time. This story originally appeared on our sister site, ABC Soaps in Depth.
