Sharon Stone: 'I miscarried three times'

The Basic Instinct star wishes she had been given the chance to carry a child to full term and give birth in her lifetime.

Sharon Stone has opened up about the "devastating" miscarriages she suffered as the result of a genetic blood condition.

The Casino actress possesses an Rh-positive blood type, which can create major pregnancy complications.

“The Rh factor is a genetic thing, so all of the (my) siblings have the Rh factor," she tells U.S. news show Extra. “I can say that I had three, five-and-a-half-month miscarriages and no one had any answer for me (as to) what's going on, (or) why (this is) happening to me.

"I think when we go through this as a family, it's devastating that the medical community is not paying the attention that's needed.”

Although Sharon is now a proud mother to three adopted sons, the Basic Instinct star admits she would have loved to experience the birth process.

“There's no experience like the experience of having it (baby) in your home and the experience of having it yourself," she notes before adding, “My boys are great, all three of them are great… It’s a special time.”

Despite the pains of not having a baby naturally, Stone is delighted with her life and she is feeling better than ever after turning 59 on 10 March (17).

“I had a great birthday, just a great birthday," she smiles before sharing her secret to staying fit. “I thought, ‘How would I like to age?' I'd like to age like a dancer, and as a dancer you have to dance, stretch, and move, so that's what I do - I do Pilates, I really eat healthfully (sic) and I prefer the healthier life.”
