After Facing Fertility Struggles, Anne Hathaway Has Some Incredible News to Share!
In this digital age, you don’t need to spend tons of money on hosting a party just to announce that you’re expecting. Now, you can easily tell the world the good news via social media, and what better way to do this than with a telling photo.
If you are a celebrity, this could be the most effective way to update your followers, which was what Anne Hathaway did to reveal that baby no. 2 is on its way. However, in doing so, the actress highlighted her struggles, hinting that it was not a walk in the park for her.
Baby No. 2
The award-winning actress recently confirmed on Instagram that she is expecting her second child with husband Adam Shulman with a black and white “mirror-fie” wherein the mom flaunted her baby bump.
In the caption, she quipped that this was not for a movie, instead, she wrote “#2.” Along with this, she made sure that she is not insensitive to those experiencing conception problems and revealed that it was not an easy path for both their babies.
After the big announcement, Anne opened up about the conception journey and how she wishes to break the common tales of pregnancy that usually shun those who suffer hardships in conceiving.
The Les Miserables star believes that it is important for her to be true with what she was going through to reach out to other women experiencing the same problems and in a bid to make them feel less “isolated.”
Reaching out to Sisters
The 36-year-old explained that it is, of course, OK to celebrate milestones like this, but even before that accomplishment, there’s a silence on the pain some expectant moms had to go through.
Anne is extremely happy of bearing her second child, which she said she’s been wanting for a while now, but she knew that her big reveal was going to hurt someone at some point.
So, to let them know that they’re not alone, she made them feel that she had sad and painful moments, too, and that happiness is just one part of the story.
The thespian further explained that she was stunned to know that she wasn’t the only one who was going through a tough phase as there was a lot of them. What matters, Anne continued, is that she and they have found a sister in each other.
More Common than We Know
What’s nice about Anne is that her being a beacon of openness about such a taboo topic gives light on the plight of the women who face the challenge.
While only a few really talk about the problem, 13 percent of couples face issues in conceiving, the Department of Health and Human Services said.
One-third of the infertility challenges are attributed to women while another third to the man, while the remaining third is unexplained or issues with both parties.
Kofinas Fertility Group director of IVF Jason Kofinas said that celebrities who talk about their infertility issues normalize the struggles and therefore could reach other people on a personal level.
