Reality star Bethenny Frankel has revealed that she had a miscarriage after being eight weeks pregnant with her second baby.
Frankel — who debuts the third season of Bravo’s Bethenny Ever After tonight at 9 p.m. — explained to the Today Show’s Savannah Guthrie that she’s plenty busy with her 21-month old daughter Bryn, but that she and husband Jason Hoppy have been trying to have a second child.
“We were pregnant with a second baby and at eight weeks I miscarried,” Frankel said. “That was a very emotional experience and it had a lot of different things that came with it.”
Frankel acknowledged that getting pregnant again might take some time, but she remains optimistic. “I’m 41. I don’t know. It’s really not my choice. It’s not my option. The window is closing. So it’s something I’m dealing with.” She added: “Thinking about women who can’t have their own baby, even the first baby, I’m lucky. I have the most beautiful daughter in the world and I’m grateful for her.”
