On Tuesday, Debbie Matenopoulos opened up about her difficult fertility journey during an appearance on the “Allison Interviews” podcast. While speaking with Allison Kugel, Matenopoulos revealed that she had suffered nine miscarriages since she gave birth to her daughter in 2014. “I was fortunate enough to be able to have [my daughter] Alexandra, but unfortunately, and I have not talked about this before, but after Alexandra I had such a hard time staying pregnant. I had nine miscarriages,” Matenopoulos told Kugel, per Entertainment Tonight Canada.
Matenopoulos also revealed that she spent years trying to conceive a second child. “I was pregnant for, like, five years straight and no one knew except my stylist that I was pregnant. I would lose them, always. The first three were really hard, and then after that I got to a point where I was like, ‘Is this a joke? Really?!'” Matenopoulos said.
The former “View” co-host also recounted an especially tragic miscarriage that she suffered just one day prior to hosting the Golden Globes red carpet for “The Insider.” “Probably the worst one for me was when I was about four months pregnant at that point, and I had to host the Golden Globes red carpet for ‘The Insider’. I had the D&C [dilation and curettage] on Saturday and then I had to host the Golden Globes on Sunday,” she revealed.
