Vanessa Marcil has suffered her seventh heartbreaking miscarriage.

The 49-year-old actress and her fiancé, who, she refers to as MC on social media, announced their pregnancy in November 2017.

Vanessa, who also has a 15-year-old son, was so excited to finally welcome a second baby.

In early January, Vanessa updated her fans on her pregnancy by sharing a photo of her puppy resting on her baby bump and revealed at the time that they were expecting a girl.

Now, Vanessa and MC are dealing with the grief of losing their unborn baby.

Vanessa shared the sad news with a beautiful sunset image of the couple on January 26, 2018. In the caption, she explained that she and MC had lost their baby, whom they refer to as OPM. (Some people speculate that OPM could mean “our perfect miracle.”)

Since announcing the miscarriage, Vanessa’s fans have reached out to offer their condolences and support.
