WHITNEY Port has revealed she’s expecting her second child after two miscarriages.
The 36-year-old reality star is early in her pregnancy and admitted it’s “touch and go.”
Whitney made the news public in her latest installment of her Reacting to The Hills series on her YouTube channel, saying she's felt "stressed" and "overwhelmed" recent weeks.
She said she and husband Tim Rosenman were emotional during filming because they just had worrying news about the pregnancy. But in the caption of the video Tim revealed they had a more positive doctor’s appointment since filming, where they “heard the heartbeat and saw an embryo, to everyone’s surprise.”
At the start of the video, Whitney said she was seven weeks along but had been told by her doctor that her latest pregnancy might be “another unhealthy” one.
"It's such a huge part of our lives right now and it affects everything, like physically and mentally and everything that we do, and so it just felt like an opportunity to just share it because I couldn't just sit here and go on with my life and not share it." Whitney said.
Whitney said the doctor’s assessment of her pregnancy has made her doubt herself.
"I definitely feel just scared for myself and my confidence and my self-worth and what this means for that, and also for not being able to give this family what I think would be the best for it," the Hills alum continued. "The emotions are obviously very complicated. I still feel very, very pregnant."
Tim comforted his wife, assuring her: "I don't feel like you've disappointed us and we'll figure out how we add to our family and what that looks like when the time is right."
The couple filmed an update days later in which they said Whitney’s pregnancy is “touch and go” as she’s still in her first trimester.
The Hills star shared, ”We wanted to keep you posted just because, I think for both of us, we feel like keeping this a secret feels weird and wrong. Sharing this with you just feels right."
"Nothing we can do or not do is going to affect the viability of this pregnancy," Tim added. "We just are sharing types and have a community that…we can draw some strength from."
In January Whitney revealed she'd suffered a second miscarriage.
In an Instagram post, she wrote: "Hey, Everyone. This is not an easy one. We decided to start vlogging for our YouTube channel a couple months ago to share two stories: Renovating a new house and a new pregnancy journey.
"Sadly, I lost the pregnancy."
The TV personality continued: "Timmy and I weren't sure if we still wanted to put this out there.
"I wasn't sure I wanted to relive the pain.
However, this time around, I felt differently about the situation."
Whitney reflected on her first miscarriage, writing: "Last time, I don't think I was ready to have another child, and I had different feelings about the miscarriage.
"This time, I really connected. I was actually excited and enjoying the pregnancy. I envisioned it all."
She continued: "I’m sad but I’m ok and we will try again.
"So here’s our story. I also have so much sadness in my heart for anyone that has to go through this or has gone through this. I know though that our community will share, band together and support- cause you always do."
The MTV star explained that the couple documented their experience of losing the child, writing: "We ended up putting the footage into 5 mini episodes and plan to post one a day, today- Friday. Love you guys. link in bio."
Whitney and Tim tied the knot in 2015, while the couple shares four-year-old son Sonny.
Whitney previously opened up about her first miscarriage while appearing on the Infertile AF podcast last year.
She said that the miscarriage strengthened their marriage, stating: "If anything, it brought us closer together.
"How he cared for me and how there he was, emotionally, for me was really amazing."
Whitney also said that her first miscarriage made the couple truly think about their plans to expand their family.
The TV personality said at the time: "He, I know, really really wants a second kid, and I don’t know. That’s where little fractures start to happen.
"But in terms of the miscarriage, we got through that and I think we’re stronger, fortunately, than before."
