Pretty Little Liars Jenna Marshall Star Tammin Sursok Sadly Revealed She Lost 2 Babies And More
Hey, Pretty Little Liars fans. Yes, we’re still waiting for new details to pop up about the new “Perfectionists” spin-off. But in the meantime, Pretty Little Liars alum Tammin Sursok recently chimed in with some very sad news. Most of you guys may recall Tammin as the scandalous blind girl Jenna Marshall on Pretty Little Liars.
According to the folks over at People.com , Tammin had some pretty bad news to share, but she also had some good news. She shared this news during a podcast called “Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy.” The bad news is that she sadly lost two babies in the past due to a miscarriage. She talked about the experience of it and how she handled it. She said the first time she miscarried was much more difficult than the second time, simply because they had never experienced it before.
She started off by saying that it took her a long time to finally share this sad news, but she decided to do it because it could help other women that have experienced the same situation. She stated, “It took me a long time to share it, but if I can make one person feel less alone … Because it happens so much, I think it’s 1 in 4 women.”
People.com explained that Tammin’s first miscarriage happened over three months into the pregnancy when the baby’s heart stopped beating. They say she just decided to deliver the dead fetus at home with pills, and she described the whole experience.
She stated, “The baby came out in a sac with an umbilical cord and little feet, eyes and everything. The whole experience was so traumatic but the birth of it, even though it wasn’t obviously a full-term birth, it was incredible. I can’t even explain it. I went into contractions. It was almost like letting the pain out, in a way, because I was in pain. Then the baby came out, the fetus. My husband was there. He held me. It was really quite beautiful.
I said to my husband afterwards, ‘Wow, imagine if my birth could be like this.’ It was the first feeling of what contractions felt like. Everything opened up and we were at home and it just felt better than a c-section. Even though it was bad, it felt better than a c-section.”
After that, Tammin revealed that she quickly got preggers again with the second baby she miscarried. She explained that she had complications with it from the very start. It would be fine sometimes and then not fine at other times. She explained, “The baby was developing. Then it wasn’t. Then it was. Then it wasn’t. Every time I went back, the baby was fine and then not fine. We actually moved house and the day we moved, we lost the baby as well. It wasn’t as traumatic as the other one because a we’d been through it, and b the fetus wasn’t as big, So, it was more of a shock.”
After that, Tammin revealed the good news. She quickly got pregnant again. And this time, it appears that the baby will be very healthy as she’s due to deliver in just a few days from now! Tammin did say that it took her a while to connect to the current baby due to the fact that she experienced those two miscarriages.
She explained, “I think two weeks ago was the first time I was like, ‘Holy crap, I’m having a baby.’ I didn’t connect to this baby for so long. I think my husband did too. I was like, ‘Are you connected to this baby?’ And he was like, ‘I’m trying.’ And then it’s almost like, when the baby turned, I felt like we were communicating. Until she could survive on her own was when I started to go, ‘This is real.’”
Tammin went on to explain what she did to keep up a positive attitude about everything. She stated, “I just feel like if you’re not laughing, you’re crying. What’s the other choice? I just feel like everyone has something. Everyone’s struggling with something. Everyone has a battle you don’t know about. I feel like you have a choice to feel negative or positive, and I do feel negative a lot of the time, but I have to switch that.”
To cap off the interview, Tammin said she’s ready to take a break from being pregnant. She also joked about what they’re going to name their second baby stating, “We’re just going to call her girl or just call her baby. Baby’s a good name! The first kid you have everything planned and the room planned and you have a birth plan … and this one, I’m like, ‘I think we should probably get another car seat? There’s going to be a baby.’ I said to my husband, ‘We should get some onesies because she has no clothes.’”
Before all the miscarriage issues, Tamming had a first baby which is a girl. She’s five years old now. They named her Phoenix. Update: Tammin did give birth to her new baby girl. She hopped on her Instagram 4 days ago to reveal the news. She posted a text photo that reads, “She’s here. And she’s perfect.” You guys can view that post on Tammin’s official Instagram account by Clicking Here.
