Claire Holt is expecting her first child with husband Andrew Joblon. The joyous news comes after a dark period for the couple. Seven months earlier Holt suffered a miscarriage that left the actress and her hubby heartbroken.
Holt delivered the good news via Instagram sharing a picture of her and Andrew with their rescue pup. The 33-year-old mother-to-be was beaming wearing a fitted long sleeved dress that showed off her growing bump.
“My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude," Holt captioned the post.
Holt went on to reflect on the painful miscarriage she suffered writing, “You never forget the deep pain of loss. It dims with time but it informs many of your experiences. “Our loss earlier this year was the darkest moment of my life. Yet, it made me infinitely more thankful for the precious baby growing inside me today.”
Claire Holt went on to speak to those women out there that are still struggling to conceive writing that her wish is that she can be a light of hope for them. “I want to take a moment to acknowledge all those struggling with miscarriage, infertility or any of the difficulties that come with bringing new life into the world."
“I know these announcements can hurt. I’ve felt it all. My heart is with you and I pray that our story gives you hope. Thank you all so much for your love and support— I can’t wait to share this journey with you," Holt added.
Holt’s opened up about her miscarriage in March with her social media following. The actress admitted she debated if she wanted to share her heartbreak with the world but decided to share her loss after feeling that miscarriage needs to be spoken about more. She candidly wrote of her miscarriage in an Instagram post just 10 days after losing her baby.
