10 Celebs Who Welcomed a Rainbow Baby After Their Pregnancy Loss

It can be very difficult for parents going through a miscarriage. So it’s essential to take some time to grieve the loss of a child, talk with others, and mostly, communicate with your partner.

But after every unfortunate series of events, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. There is sunshine after rain, and a little rainbow baby is on its way. We have collected a list of celebrities who’ve gone through a sequence of emotions throughout this journey.

1. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

“Grief, pregnancy, and parenting are all very tiring, so the combination can be very challenging. Children born after loss are often called ’rainbow babies’ to symbolize hope and light after a dark time, but it’s important to remember that a rainbow doesn’t erase the storm that came before it.”

2. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban

“At 41, it’s more of a painful love, I look at that little girl, and I’m like, ‘Oh, no, what’s going to happen?’ It’s almost like my heart is stretching — I’m feeling all the muscles stretch with emotion. It’s a beautiful love, but there’s a lot of fear and pain for her life.”

3. Christina Perri and Paul Costabile

“Rosie’s short and powerful life already served such a huge purpose in our world, and she has lovingly changed me, Paul, and Carmella forever. We are more capable of love and compassion than we ever knew we could be. We learned how to hold space for loss and how to navigate unimaginable grief together.”

4. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend

“The last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again. We have another on the way. Every appointment I’ve said to myself, ’OK, if it’s healthy today, I’ll announce,’ but then I breathe a sigh of relief to hear a heartbeat and decide I’m just too nervous still.”

“I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nerves, but so far, everything is perfect and beautiful, and I’m feeling hopeful and amazing. Ok, phew, it’s been very hard keeping this in for so long!”

5. Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher

“I had always been afraid to be angry. And my son, Isaiah, is the sweetest thing. And he’s the best thing in the world. And I’m like, ’If we can never have any other kids, that’s okay, because he’s amazing.’ And I have this amazing life. I went to the doctor to confirm another miscarriage. And they told me everything was great!”

6. Shay Mitchell and Matte Babel

“Now, it’s about us, and I would never want it to be like I’m not confident of us. I’m extremely confident now because I have my baby growing inside me. It didn’t feel right to just put up a photo and be like, ’I’m pregnant,’ and have people just think that everything has been peaches and rainbows. This is real life, I want people to come along with me on this journey in real-time.”

7. Halsey and Alev Aydin

“The next thing I knew, I was on stage miscarrying in the middle of my concert. And the sensation of looking hundreds of teenagers in the face while you’re bleeding through your clothes and still having to do the show. In that moment, I was like, ’I don’t ever want to have to make that choice ever again — doing what I love, or not being able to because of this disease.’ So I put my foot down, and I got really aggressive about seeking treatment and had surgery a year ago, and I feel a lot better.”

8. Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan

“By the time the next couple of miscarriages came around, Jeffrey and I figured out how to talk to each other. Until you go through trauma with someone, you don’t know what their language is, and they don’t know what your language is. It is painful to say that by the time we had our third miscarriage, we had figured out how to communicate and help each other and how to process together. If that’s the silver lining, you have to find those whenever you can.”

9. Kimberly and James Van Der Beek

“My wife Kimberly and I went through every expecting parent’s worst nightmare. We lost the baby. You never know why these things happen, that’s what I’ve been telling my kids. All you know is that it brings you closer together, it breaks you open, it opens up your heart, it deepens your appreciation. It makes you more human.”

10. Céline Dion and René Angélil

“I’ve always been an open book. My way for me to deal with my own situation is that I take one step at a time. It’s something very beautiful when you want to conceive and when you want to be parents again. And for me to share this is also about bonding with other women that are going through the same thing.”
