Celebrity vlogger Alex Gonzaga shared the deeply emotional journey of her second miscarriage, which occurred last month.
She and her husband, Mikee Morada, decided to utilize in-vitro fertilization (IVF) for their second attempt at expanding their family.
During a recent vlog hosted by her sister Toni Gonzaga, Alex disclosed that she was inspired to explore IVF after hearing about former First Lady Michelle Obama’s personal experience with miscarriage and IVF. The decision to undergo IVF was a significant one for Alex and her husband.
“Nakita ko si Michelle Obama, basta nakita ko sinabi niya na nagkaroon siya ng miscarriage then after two years, ‘di sila makapag conceive ni Barrack [Obama], so sabi niya mag-IVF siya.”
Despite keeping her second pregnancy attempt private, Alex revealed that in October, she received the heartbreaking news that the IVF procedure had not yielded the desired outcome. The emotional weight of this revelation was undoubtedly a challenging moment for the couple.
This marks the second instance in which Alex Gonzaga has had to grapple with the loss of a pregnancy, with her first miscarriage confirmed in October 2021.
In her vlog, Alex expressed that her faith has played a significant role in helping her cope with the pain and sorrow associated with her miscarriages. She believes that her unwavering trust in the Lord provides her with strength and solace during these difficult times.
The love story of Alex Gonzaga and Mikee Morada has been closely followed by their fans. The couple’s engagement took place in January 2020, and their wedding was celebrated in November 2021. Following their wedding, they embarked on a romantic honeymoon in the picturesque destination of Amanpulo, located in Palawan.
