The Originals Actress Claire Holt is Pregnant After Tragic Miscarriage

By  | 

Claire Holt‘s life in 2018 has been a rollercoaster, to say the least. The Originals actress suffered a tragic miscarriage in March, but then married real estate executive Andrew Joblon in August. It seems that the highs are going to keep coming, as the 30-year-old just announced that she’s pregnant for the second time!

The blonde beauty made the announcement on Instagram on October 13, along with a picture that proudly shows off her baby bump. She writes, “My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude.”

Claire didn’t shy away from the fact that while she and Andrew are elated to be expecting another child, the sadness of a loss as great as a miscarriage never fully goes away.

“You never forget the deep pain of loss,” she continues. “It dims with time but it informs many of your experiences. Our loss earlier this year was the darkest moment of my life. Yet, it made me infinitely more thankful for the precious baby growing inside me today.”

She adds, ” I want to take a moment to acknowledge all those struggling with miscarriage, infertility or any of the difficulties that come with bringing new life into the world. I know that these announcements can hurt. I’ve felt it all. My heart is with you and I pray that our story gives you hope. Thank you all so much for your love and support — I can’t wait to share this journey with you.”
