The Hills' Whitney Port previously suffered two miscarriages and a chemical pregnancy — get the details
Whitney Port is pregnant and expecting a child with her husband, Tim Rosenman, but the pair are taking their time before they celebrate.
The Hills: New Beginnings star, 36, shared the news with fans in an emotional YouTube video on Wednesday, November 3, noting that she’s felt particularly “stressed and overwhelmed” in recent weeks — and for good reason.
“I’m currently seven weeks pregnant, which is supposed to be obviously really exciting, and it has been up until yesterday,” Port explained, struggling to hold back tears beside her husband. “I have been going to the doctor and monitoring it because of my history with miscarriages. I’ve had two miscarriages and a chemical pregnancy. And everything was looking good up until yesterday.”
Port went for a routine ultrasound and her doctor told her “whatever was happening in there was not where it was supposed to be, given the week that I’m at.” She noted that the specialist was “an amazing, sensitive, sweet guy,” despite the fact that he was “pessimistic about this pregnancy.”
The fashion designer’s OB-GYN recommended that she get bloodwork done, the results of which she’ll be receiving soon. Given her past fertility struggles, Port told fans that she’s worried “this is likely another unhealthy pregnancy.”
She added: “It’s such a huge part of our lives right now, and it affects everything, physically and mentally and everything that we do. And it just felt like an opportunity to just share it, because I couldn’t just sit here and go on with my life and not share it. And I know that there’s likely so many people out there that have had to deal with this.”
Rosenman sat quietly at his wife’s side as she continued to share their journey. The pair, who tied the knot in 2015, are “extremely grateful” for their 4-year-old boy, Sonny, but have been trying to have another child for quite some time.
“Everything else is really wonderful,” Port said. “But I definitely feel just scared for myself and my confidence and my self-worth and what this means for that, and also for not being able to give this family what I think would be the best for it.”
The True Whit author credited hormones for causing her “very complicated” emotions, adding, “I still feel very, very pregnant, my boobs are very sore and I’m extremely hungry and just very achy, but I obviously don’t know what’s going on inside my body.”
Port and the producer welcomed their son in July 2017. Two years later, the reality star suffered a miscarriage, followed by another pregnancy loss in January. While she’s gone through so many tough times, Port is willing to keep trying.
“We don’t have any kind of plan more than that right now,” she exclusively told Us Weekly in May. “[We’re] hoping that [baby No. 2] can happen naturally. We’ll see how it goes. I’m trying to do this new thing where I don’t give answers about something that I don’t know the answer to yet … because then I’m feeling bad about myself [since] I don’t know the answer. So, like, yes, adoption, I’m 100 percent open to it. But I’m not at that point yet.”
