Odette Annable is opening up about her third pregnancy loss.
Annable, who shares one child with her husband, David Annable, spoke of the loss in an emotional and raw Instagram post on what would have been the due date.
“The one thing that was certain was how Dave and I both felt when I found out I was pregnant. We were elated. After having two miscarriages after Charlie and after our personal journey as a couple, we finally felt like we were in the right place and our gift was this baby in my belly,” Annable wrote.
“I was 15 weeks pregnant when this photo was taken back in December and today would have been your due date. There was another plan and our baby is no longer with us.”
Annable went on to admit that despite her Instagram is a highlight reel — the moment needed to be documented as it was a part of real life.
“My social media page consists mostly of a highlight reel. I try to keep it as authentic as I can, but I also largely focus on the positive because that feels good to me. But this is real and this is part of life. The really hard stuff that you never think or want to come your way. I miss feeling this sweet baby grow but I also know that it was a gift carrying our baby and a privilege for even the short time we spent together.”
Annable continued, saying she just needed a platform to express this life event.
“It never felt right to not share or celebrate this moment in our life, I just needed the space to do it.”
She ended the heartfelt post with deep appreciation: “I miss feeling this sweet baby grow but I also know that it was a gift carrying our baby and a privilege for even the short time we spent together,” Annable wrote.
“This experience has given me a new appreciation for my husband who was a rock for me and was unwavering with his support even though I know he was feeling it all as well. It made me marvel at what a miracle Charlie is. What a miracle and a blessing it is to have a healthy child. I am so grateful for my family,” she continued.
“We love you always and forever little angel.”
