It’s jarring to realize the number of women in country music who have suffered miscarriages.
Carrie Underwood revealed that she had three miscarriages before conceiving her second son, Jacob Bryan Fisher, who arrived in late January. Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott also suffered a miscarriage before delivering twin girls, and Jana Kramer, and Rose Falcon also went through the trauma before conceiving and now delivering healthy baby boys.
Now, in an interview with podcast host Caroline Hobby, Luke Bryan’s vivacious wife, also named Caroline, reveals that she, too, has endured the heartbreak of miscarriage, as has Hobby.
The two Carolines opened up about their experiences in the “Get Real with Caroline Hobby” podcast and Caroline Bryan admitted that getting pregnant wasn’t the issue. Six months after she and Luke were married, she was pregnant with their firstborn, Bo. Later, and unexpectedly, she found herself pregnant again, but this time, the pregnancy ended prematurely.
She admitted, “What’s sad is that girls who have had one…girls take it harder than a guy does. Luke didn’t know really how to comfort me because he didn’t get it. But as girls, when you go through it and you lose it, there is a loss. And it sucks and it hurts. It’s awful physically, but it does hurt and it is a loss, but guys, I don’t think they know because they haven’t felt it or seen it.”
The ladies discussed the growing frequency of miscarriage, and while neither could explain why women are so hesitant to discuss it, they both agreed that it is a time when they most needed someone to talk to.
Our hearts go out to both of these women and all who have suffered from fertility and pregnancy issues. You can listen to the full podcast here.
