Let me just start out by saying I absolutely, 100% respect that miscarriages are horribly emotional experiences for women to go through and would never make light of one just ’cause. I’m not a Kardashian. Or apparently Gwyneth Paltrow who’s promoting her cookbook by revealing to the Daily Mail that she suffered one while trying for a third child and naturally one-upping Beyonce’s in the process by saying hers almost killed her:
‘My children ask me to have a baby all the time,’ she says. ‘And you never know, I could squeeze one more in. I am missing my third. I’m thinking about it.
‘But I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third. It didn’t work out and I nearly died. So I am like, “Are we good here or should we go back and try again?’’
Ms Paltrow also confesses that she feels ‘very broody’ whenever she sees friend Beyonce Knowles with her one-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. The singer also suffered a miscarriage before becoming a mother.
“Beyonce is such an amazing mother,” Gwyneth added, “And I just find it horribly offensive that just because she didn’t almost die trying to bring a child into the world that some people might say she’s less of one. I mean, it happened to me, I almost seriously died – And not because of my gluten, dairy, produce, meat-free diet, thank you. – but that’s not Beyonce’s fault that didn’t happen to her. Does that make me appreciate my children more than a mother who didn’t go through that? Yes, of course, but again, not Beyonce’s fault for never reaching such a deep personal level of love and attachment. She’s doing the best she can, and so what if that’s 3/5ths as well as a mother who’s felt that specific pain of almost dying trying to create life? We just live in such a judgmental world, you know? – Oh, dearie, don’t eat that, you’ll blow up like a balloon. Here lick one of these Communion wafers I carry in my purse. I don’t need lunch today. – Now where were we? Oh, right, Beyonce not almost dying during her miscarriage like I did. It’s like, God, people, let it go.”
