Susan Sarandon’s daughter miscarries

Eva Amurri Martino has lost her child after carrying the foetus for nine weeks.

The 30-year-old actress, who is the daughter of Academy Award-winner Susan Sarandon, was expecting a second child with husband Kyle Martino.

But unfortunately the couple lost the baby when she was over two months into term, with Eva revealing the sad news via her blog on Saturday August 15.

“I am sharing in the hopes that we can be a light for people going through similar circumstances, and to remind myself and others that there is no shame in voicing our heartbreaks and allowing others to comfort us. A couple of days ago, the baby I was carrying passed away. I was nine weeks pregnant,” she wrote.

Eva noted in the blog post she and her other half Kyle, who she already shares 12-month-old daughter Marlowe with, were initially elated about the baby news.

However, after they told friends, family and the world of their impending arrival, the couple experienced sudden heartbreak.

“At my next visit for a routine ultrasound, however, the baby’s heart was no longer beating,” Eva detailed. “Just like that, it was all over. I remained in the office and went through the procedure to remove the baby from my uterus. … My doctor told me that this was most likely a case of there being an underlying major developmental problem with the foetus, and that it had simply stopped growing. That nature had taken its course in the most brutally honest and simple way that nature sometimes works. He also shared with me that this is heartbreakingly common. … Of course the fact that it is common doesn’t do anything to help the pain.”
