Megan Fox has bravely shared the painful experience of suffering a miscarriage with her fiance, Machine Gun Kelly.
The 37-year-old American actress has candidly discussed this “very difficult” journey through both poems featured in her poetry book, “Pretty Boys Are Poisonous,” and in a heartfelt interview on Good Morning America, which aired on Tuesday, as reported by the New York Post.
“I had never encountered anything like that before in my life,” Fox expressed. “I already have three children, so it was an incredibly trying time for both of us. It sent us on a tumultuous journey, both together and apart, as we grappled with questions like ‘What does this mean?’ and ‘Why did this happen?'”
In her recently published book, which hit the stands on Tuesday, the Transformers star subtly hints at feeling partially responsible for the loss of her unborn child. She recalls having an ultrasound at 10 weeks and a day and writes, “maybe if you hadn’t… maybe if I had…”
Within the book, Fox describes the deep longing she feels to hold her daughter. She writes, “I want to hold your hand / hear your laugh,” and later adds, “but now / I have to say / goodbye. As they rip you from my insides / I will pay any price / Tell me please / What is the ransom / For her soul?”
Fox was previously married to Brian Austin Green for a decade from 2010 to 2020 and shares three children with the Beverly Hills, 90210 actor: Journey River, Bodhi Ransom, and Noah Shannon.
Additionally, the Jennifer’s Body star is soon to become the stepmother to Machine Gun Kelly’s daughter, Casie Colson Baker. In her interview, she disclosed that it was her 33-year-old rocker fiance who encouraged her to write the book.
“The person who actually suggested I should write a poetry book is Colson,” she mentioned on GMA. “I believe it was something within me that needed to come out because it was beginning to take a toll on my health.”
Despite the book’s many revelations, Fox explained that some stories didn’t make it onto the pages.
“I wrote a lot of things that didn’t find their way into the book,” Fox shared. “Some of it was just too personal and reserved for my own thoughts. As a public figure, there are certain aspects of my life that need to remain private.”
In an Instagram post in August, when she announced the book, Fox wrote, “I’ve spent my entire life harboring the secrets of men, my body aches from carrying the weight of their sins.”
“My freedom resides in these pages,” she continued. “I hope that my words can inspire others to reclaim their happiness and identity by using their voice to shed light on what’s been buried, but not forgotten, in the darkness.”
