‘My heart is bursting’ Actress Claire Holt announces that she is pregnant

The Vampire Diaries’ Claire Holt has told how her “heart is bursting” with happiness as she announced that she is pregnant.

The actress shared the news as she posted of herself, her husband Andrew Joblon, and their dog Teddy earlier this week.

The 30-year-old mum-to-be posted:

“My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby!

“It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude.”

She also reflected on her heartbreaking miscarriage earlier this year, adding that “you never forget the deep pain of loss.”

She continued:

“It dims with time but it informs many of your experiences. Our loss earlier this year was the darkest moment of my life. Yet, it made me infinitely more thankful for the precious baby growing inside me today.

“I want to take a moment to acknowledge all those struggling with miscarriage, infertility or any of the difficulties that come with bringing new life into the world.

“I know that these announcements can hurt. I’ve felt it all. My heart is with you and I pray that our story gives you hope.

“Thank you all so much for your love and support – I can’t wait to share this journey with you.”

The news comes seven months after Claire suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage.

The actress took to Instagram in March to post a photo of herself in the hospital, telling her followers that she had tragically lost her baby.

She captioned it:

“I took this photo 10 days ago, as I waited for surgery after my sweet little baby lost its heartbeat. I sent it to my fiancé in the waiting room to show him that I was OK. I wasn’t.

“I’ve never felt more broken in my life.

“I debated sharing this so soon and I’m still frightened about making such a private struggle public, but I’m doing it anyway because it’s important.”

Claire and Andrew wed in August this year, eight months after they got engaged.
