Reality star Laura Govan recently miscarried and the beauty is opening up about it via social media.
On Thursday evening, Govan, most known for chronicling her life on Basketball Wives LA, wrote a lengthy message on Instagram dishing on the pain she endured following the loss.
“I wanted to share something with U guys and why I’ve been out of the loop, well #NRealLife for the past three months I’ve been sick, and extremely exhausted and about a month ago I found out that I was pregnant with my 5th baby, which I thought was impossible,” she wrote. “Unfortunately, I had a miscarriage. When it happened I didn’t want to talk about or deal with it, but now I’m ready to get my life back on track!”
Laura went on to say that she gained over a dozen pounds following the miscarriage.
“I gained a good 15 pounds during this rough time in my life. I want you to rock with me as I take this journey of losing the weight and getting ME back …. because this is something REAL that happens every day to women like you and me and it’s real easy to feel alone, confused and unsure about how to handle or deal with the struggle. Thank God for my REAL friends and family who allowed me to do me and take some time away to get back to focus.
#inRealLife I’m so thankful for all your support …. Let’s get it … And Thank You for the LOVE,” she concluded, stamping the post with a kiss.
Govan did not make clear who the father would have been, but the reality star has been off and on with former NBA star, Gilbert Arenas for years. Gilbert is also the father of her four children.
HipHollywood caught up with Laura and her sister, Gloria in January to talk about their unnamed, forthcoming reality show. According to Laura, the show will follow she and her sister’s lives as single, working mothers. “Both of us being single, single moms, and coming out and showing who we really are and how we really roll is going to be a big, big, big thing for us. I’m excited.”
