In a candid new interview, Gwyneth Paltrow shares she was pregnant with her third child but miscarried. Although she didn’t say when the miscarriage occurred, she says complications nearly ended her life, making her wary of having another baby, even though she would like one.
“My children ask me to have a baby all the time,” the 40-year-old actress told London’s Daily Mail. “And you never know, I could squeeze one more in. I am missing my third. I’m thinking about it. But I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third. It didn’t work out and I nearly died. So I am like, ‘Are we good here or should we go back and try again?’”
Although she didn’t give details about her miscarriage, serious complications can include excessive bleeding, post-miscarriage infection, or an ectopic pregnancy, where a fertilized egg implants outside the womb and cannot develop.
