Whitney Port is opening up about her devastating pregnancy loss.
Last week, the Hills: New Beginnings star revealed in an Instagram story that she has suffered another miscarriage.
Now, she is speaking out about how she talks about the difficult topic with her 4-year-old son Sonny, who she shares with husband Tim Rosenman.
“I’m trying my best to be...positive, especially just for Sonny, not even for me,” the reality star said on her “With Whit” podcast on Tuesday, November 23. “I don’t want him to see me like a mess. He’s seen me cry way more than I want him to see me cry.”
However, she went on to explain that she has talked to her therapist about showing her sadness in front of her tot, insisting: “It’s OK for him to see those things, but it’s important for him to know it’s nothing that he did and things sometimes happen."
“Just like when he gets a booboo and cries, that’s what happens to Mommy too," she continued. "I’m putting it in his terms.”
Port’s discussion of explaining her loss with her toddler comes just days after she announced the heartbreaking news to her followers on social media.
“I’m so sad to say this, and some of you may have watched on our latest YouTube episode, but we lost the baby,” she wrote in an Instagram Story on on Wednesday, November 17. “We found out yesterday, I don’t even really know what to say here. I recorded a full verbal diary of all my thoughts and emotions that I’ll put out on my podcast next week.”
Port, who has suffered several pregnancy losses, continued: “Sending all my love to those of you dealing with this right now. And I don’t want to be insensitive by making light of it, but glass half full — I don't physically feel like complete s**t anymore.”
Earlier this month, Port and her husband announced their pregnancy news in a tearful YouTube video, where they shared with their viewers that it was “another unhealthy pregnancy.”
"I definitely feel just scared for myself and my confidence and my self-worth and what this means for that, and also for not being able to give this family what I think would be the best for it," she admitted at the time. "The emotions are obviously very complicated. I still feel very, very pregnant."
"I don't feel like you've disappointed us and we'll figure out how we add to our family and what that looks like when the time is right," her husband said in the video.
