Bethenny Frankel, reality star and original Housewife of New York City, revealed on Monday’s TODAY show that after an 8 week pregnancy she had a miscarriage.
Frankel was also a contestant on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart and starsed in her own reality show for the Bravo network called, Bethenny Ever After, which followed her life after her run on the Real Housewives of New York City.
The currently 41-year-old Frankel, married her husband, Jason Hoppy in March of 2010, shortly after she gave birth to the couples first daughter.
On the TODAY show, host Savannah Guthrie asked Frankel about motherhood and if she had planned on having anymore children. Frankel then revealed that she had actually been pregnant a second time but miscarried.
“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.”
Asked by Guthrie if the experience would discourage her from trying again, Frankel replied, “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.”
