Ann Romney, the wife of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, opened up to CBS News about the day she lost her baby.
In the exclusive interview, Mrs. Romney said that in her 40s, she found herself unexpectedly pregnant, something she thought wasn’t possible after a surgery she underwent some 10 years prior.
Unfortunately, the now 63-year-old lost the child and was forced to tell her youngest son, who had been overjoyed to welcome a new brother or sister, that she was no longer expecting.
Mrs. Romney told CBS News:
“I was home by the time he [Craig] (the Romney’s youngest son) got home from school that afternoon. And he walked in the door, and he was about 10, 11 years old. And he fell on the floor and just burst into tears. And the poor little kid had been at school all day long holding this sorrow inside of him. And having no one to speak to, no one to comfort him, no one to explain what was going on.”
Mrs. Romney consoled her son by saying that one day he would have children of his own, saying:
“I said, ‘You know, Craig, you know, you’re probably not going to have another little brother or little sister in your life, but you’ll have children of your own someday. And, you know, this little hole will be filled by that.’”
What a courageous woman to disclose such personal information. We can’t imagine what she had to go through.
