One tree hill alum,Hilarie Burton welcomed daughter,George Virginia last month and on tuesday she took to her instagram to share struggles she and husband Jeffrey Dean Morgan faced for five years.
“More losses followed, and as so many couples know, it was heartbreaking. It still is heartbreaking,” she wrote. “And every morning of the five years it took us, I’d open my computer at the kitchen table and see the news and I’d grow bitter over the endless parade of celebrities showing off their bumps and babies. I’d weep out of jealousy for how easy it was for them. Didn’t they know something could go wrong? Didn’t they know that there were other women out there struggling? It pained me to see the corporate sponsored baby showers and magazine covers capitalizing on this human miracle that wasn’t happening for us.”
“I didn’t want to celebrate for fear of jinxing it. I didn’t want a baby shower,” she revealed. “I checked her heartbeat every day, up until the day she was born. And now that she is here, I just stare at her in wonder all day. I see her in her daddy’s arms and I don’t take any of it for granted. She screams bloody murder and I smile because she is so wildly alive.”
“I don’t want her birth to cause any other woman to weep at her kitchen table. If anything, my wish is that she would restore hope for others. Fertility is a fickle thing,” she wrote. “And for the other couples out there who have had dark days, we want to introduce our miracle baby to you and send you our love and support in finding yours.”
They are also parent to son,Gus. The couple have been together since 2009. Aww such a beautiful family they’ve got there. Congratulations
