According to research, 10-20% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. Despite its frequency, the subject is still considered taboo to discuss in public. However, several celebrities have opened up about their experiences having one or multiple miscarriages.
Last night on 'Dancing with the Stars,' actor James Van Der Beek announced that his wife Kimberly had just suffered a miscarriage. The child would've been their sixth. This is actually the second time Kimberly has suffered a miscarriage.
"We've been through this before, but never this late in the pregnancy, and never accompanied by such a scary, horrific threat to @vanderkimberly and her well-being," the actor shared on Instagram. "Grateful that she's now recovering, but we've only just begun unpacking the layers of this one."
