Remy Ma has gone into detail about a major personal tragedy she suffered a short while go.
As revealed to those who watch Love & Hip Hop online or on television, the reality star admitted on last night's episode that she recently lost a child to a miscarriage.
Remy Ma and her longtime partner, Papoose, announced in June that they were expecting their first child together.
Since that confirmation, however, Ma had remained oddly quiet about the life everyone assumed was growing inside of her womb.
And now as sadly understand why.
After the episode aired, Ma shared a video that she previously took from her hospital bed.
"I never for one second thought that it would end like this for me in the hospital," she said in the footage, adding:
"I have stitches in my stomach and no baby. Today I was thinking of names and planning the nursery."
The star went on to say she was hesitant to open up about such a personal heartbreak, but she was encouraged to do so by Papoose and she's so very thankful to all who have supported her along the way.
"First, thank you to everyone that sent their congrats as well as condolences," Remy Ma wrote on Instagram.
"This was a hard time for me & my husband & we thought long and hard before deciding to share this part of our lives with you all."
What made Ma finally realize that going public was the right thing to do?
When she thought about the impact she could have on others in a similar situation.
"I was totally against it but in a fit of crying @papoosepapoose said " you are not the only one going thru this , we will get thru it" ...made me realize how many women like myself experience the same thing and don't have a strong partner by their side to say it will be alright," she wrote.
"So I'm here to tell anyone going thru a similar situation that it is not over and God has the last say."
Many other celebrities have, indeed, suffered miscarriages in recent memory. To wit:
Remy Ma explained how she underwent surgery after learning that she was having an ectopic pregnancy.
The fetus needed to be removed and she found out that she could no longer get pregnant.
"Thank you to the staff at the hospital I was in; you all were super nice & respectful and did everything to ensure I was comfortable," she continued, prior to singling out one physician:
"And to Dr. Razmzan , who came to perform my surgery at 5am, who tried his best to leave me scarless and succeeded, who eased any fears I had...
"THANK YOU, & don't retire yet cuz once we find the right in vitro dr you have to deliver my babies."
We send our thoughts, prayers and condolences to Remy Ma and Papoose.
We can only imagine the difficult time they are going through and we wish them nothing but the best going forward.
