Update: Game show host Kris Aquino suffers miscarriage

03/25/2008 at 03:48 AM ET

Update:  Kris has announced that she has suffered a miscarriage.  The news comes just one day after it was learned that her mother is battling colon cancer.

I had a miscarriage. Collapsed gestational sac and blighted ovum. We just have to wait for my body to expel on its own. Seven and half weeks. God’s will so I can take care of my mom. Just came from Dr. Pastorfide with my mom now. On our way home from the hospital.

Originally posted March 13th: The host of the Philippine franchise of Wheel of Fortune, Kris Aquino, 37, and her husband, basketball player James Yap, 26, are expecting their second child together, she revealed during a taping of Wheel of Fortune.

Continue reading for the rest of the post.

Later today, Kris released a statement that she was not ready to officially announce, as she is only 6 weeks along and wants to wait until after her next appointment on the 19th.

Had my check up with Dr. Pastorfide. My yolk sac was visible by ultrasound, but no fetal pole yet because I’m going on my 6th week. I go back on Weds to 100% confirm that my pregnancy is viable. We’ll also do all my blood works & other tests to make sure I’ll have a healthy pregnancy.

The baby will be due in late October/early November. Kris and James have son James Jr., 11 months, and Kris has son Joshua, 12, with ex-partner, actor Philip Salvador.

which wheel of fortune are we talking about… i was just watching it last week, and it’s still pat sajak and vanna white as far as i could see… i’m not a regular watcher though, so maybe i missed something?

I believe it’s the Philippine’s version of Wheel of fortune.

maddie on

Yes, it is the Philippine version of Wheel of Fortune. She is the daughter of the former Philippine president Corazon Aquino. BTW- the source should be corrected as ABS-CBN News.

Dierna on

Neat!! A female host of Wheel of Fortune!! Is there a guy turning the letters?? *lol*

I don’t get it. She’s not ready to officially announce the pregnancy, yet she announced it anyway?????

At 5 weeks preg. I was able to not only see the baby (more like a peanut!!!) but also its hearbeat…. I would be worried that at 6 wks she didn’t see any thing other than a sac. Maybe it was an external u.s.–that makes a difference too. I wish her luck and a healthy happy pregnancy and a beautiful new addition to her family!

kris aquino is criticized pretty regularly in the philippines media, so it’s nice to hear something positive is going on for her. i think she’s pretty fun, and if anyone knows about her father, she’s had a hard life.

Pam on

It sounds like it was mentioned on the show, but she wasn’t ready for it to be because she is so early in the pregnancy, so she just released a little statement that she wasn’t really ready to comment until after her doctor’s appt next Wednesday.

Fetal Poles usually develop around 5 and half weeks and the heartbeat at around 6 weeks. There is 2 different ways to measure pregnancy. Most docs use LMP(Last Mentral Period) others use the date you got pregnant. LMP is usually 2 weeks more. I understand what she has been thru because I have been thru it so much myself. The bloodwork and the ultrasounds. i would guess they are doing this because of problems in the past, usually you have to have prior issues to go thru all of that stuff. Good Luck to her !!!!

Wow I am so sorry that she had a miscarriage.

Snow on

I am so sorry to hear of this. Any loss of a baby is heartbreaking, I have been there too many times myself, and to have to worry about her mother too, I pray that all goes well for this family.

This exact thing happened to me in 2001. It was difficult, but I now have a healthy 3 year old son. I wish her the best. I’ve been there!

jaQ on

my thoughts and prayers are with her. sending kris and her family healing and peace vibes. i’m so sorry to hear this.

Courtney on

Oh no!!! I was waiting to hear news since I read here of her past troubles. My 3rd miscarriage was a blighted ovum. To me it was the worst. There is a sac, and no baby, its hard to understand how you can be pregnant and yet there be no baby. A year to the day that I had my ultasound of the blighted ovum I had my second child. I hope all goes well for her.

LB3 on

Courtney, the same thing happened to me. I tried for 6 years to get my third and I finally got pregnant and the next day miscarried due to a blighted ovum. Hard to understand. Exactly a year to the day later I found out I was pregnant again and I now have my third and final baby. A boy named Matthew. He is precious.
