Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott opened up about the difficulties of enduring miscarriages before ending up with her family of five.

Hillary and her husband, Chris Tyrell, were open about her miscarriage after their first daughter’s, Eisele, birth. The couple was hesitant to announce the country singer’s latest pregnancy because of fear of another miscarriage. She told People Magazine:

“We were taking it a week at a time. ‘When are we going to announce this news?’ Because I wasn’t sure. With Eisele, I carried a certain way. With twins, I mean, I might look five months pregnant by 12 weeks. Who knows?”

Carrying the twins turned out to be an easier experience for Hillary than her first pregnancy:

“Because that was a long process, it took me a while to fully recover after the miscarriage just because it was physically and emotionally [difficult]. This time around, I slept a lot.”

Hillary was heartbroken after her first miscarriage. She always dreamt of having a big family, and her goal seemed unattainable. The birth of her twins came as a huge blessing:

“It was emotional, because I’m like, ‘Oh, we’re going to have as many babies in our house as I hoped we would have. It just isn’t in the same timing that I thought it was going to be, but we are going to have our three.’”

The Lady Antebellum frontwoman wanted to be transparent sharing the news of her recent pregnancy. She hopes that her story can be a means of hope for another family:

“Because we’ve been so open about our last pregnancy loss and journey, I want to be fully transparent with you that this happened naturally. Chris nor I have any family history of twins that we can find and are just resting in the profound gift this truly is. My heart still grieves for our loss and all who are struggling with pregnancy and infant loss and infertility. God hears every prayer and I will continue to share our story to point to the Source of all life, peace and comfort in the best and most difficult of times. Don’t lose hope!”
