This is so heartbreaking. Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his wife, Lauren, revealed during a November 18 interview on ABC that the Jersey Shore Family Vacation star suffered a miscarriage at seven weeks pregnant. “It was heart-wrenching,” Lauren, 34, said of the experience, while Mike, 37, nodded in support.

The New Jersey natives went on to reveal that they “conceived” the very evening Mike was released from his eight-month stint in federal prison. “Then, at about six and a half, seven weeks, I miscarried,” Lauren continued. “When I found out we were pregnant, I felt like this is why we went through all these challenges for years and that this was our time and it was our blessing. It was hard. It was really difficult.”

As challenging as this loss has been for the pair, Lauren insisted on telling their story. “I didn’t want to hold this in,” she expressed. “I wanted to share it for other people going through it and just be honest so I can kind of heal through the process.”
