Alex Gonzaga revealed that she was pregnant two months ago, but unfortunately, she lost her baby.
Sharing her story on Instagram, Gonzaga found out that she was experiencing “an anembryonic pregnancy (blighted ovum)” three weeks ago. “Our doctor advised us to wait for the process to naturally take its course. So, we had to wait for a while for the pregnancy to finally end before we can tell our story,” she added.

“The waiting and praying tested our faith and there (was) a lot of crying. (Every day), we were clinging on to a miracle that an embryo would still appear but last Tuesday, the Lord’s will prevailed and we finally closed the book of our first pregnancy,” she continued, revealing her and husband Mikee Morada’s painful experience.
“We share our story to give hope that in the midst of this pain and loss the Lord will always sustain you,” she added.
The media personality went on to comfort other couples, stressing to not “lose hope and “it’s not your fault this happened.”
“At your own pace, you can start to grieve and heal. Mikee and I held on to our Lord Jesus to prepare and help us accept our situation,” Gonzaga said.
Gonzaga remained hopeful that she’ll have a baby “in His perfect time.” “To our baby whom we almost had, thank you for giving mommy and daddy joy even for a short span. Lastly, thank you to everyone who gave us time to heal,” she concluded.
In a separate Facebook post on Oct. 17, Morada said his wife’s miscarriage has brought them closer as a couple. “May mga pinapangarap at hinahangad tayo na ibibigay sa atin ng Panginoon sa panahon na alam Niyang mas para sa atin. Minsan mapapaisip at mapapaquestion tayo, pero yung tiwala natin sa Kanya ang dapat manaig,” he added.
“Hindi man natuloy, blessing at masaya ang maexperience na dalawang buwang buntis si misis. Sa maiksing panahon hinanda Niya kami para sa susunod. Lalong tumibay ang aming samahan bilang magasawa,” Morada said.
According to digital health platform WebMD, blighted ovum or anembryonic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants in the uterus but doesn’t develop into an embryo. It’s also considered as one of the leading causes of early pregnancy failure or miscarriage.
Gonzaga and Morada tied the knot in November 2020.
