    Bethenny Frankel Reveals That She Had a Miscarriage

    Things haven't been so happily ever after for Bethenny Frankel.

    Aside from her marriage dramas on the third season of Bethenny Ever After, the reality star went on Today Monday morning and revealed some sad news—that she suffered a miscarriage while she was eight weeks pregnant.

    When asked if she and hubby Jason Hoppy were considering expanding their family, Frankel said, "I'm 41…It's a very personal question that I get asked a lot. We were pregnant with a second baby and at eight weeks I miscarried and that was a very emotional experience. It had a lot of different things that came with it."

    "Thinking about women who can't have their own baby, even the first baby, I'm really lucky," Frankel continued, holding back tears. "I have the most beautiful daughter in the world and I'm grateful for her."

    Frankel said following the incident she hasn't been sure if an additional sibling for her 21-month-old, Bryn, is still in the cards.

    "I'm 41 and I don't know," the Skinny Girl cocktail mogul went on. "It's not really my choice. It's not really my option and the window's closing and it's something that I'm dealing with…I'm not really thinking about it. I don't know what my options are. I do have an incredible daughter. I feel like she's perfect."

    "I honestly have thought about other women more than myself...The first thing I thought about was ‘Oh, my God. I can't believe what people must go through if they can't even have the one,'" Frankel continued.

    Fans of Bethenny Ever After shouldn't expect to see the miscarriage discussed this season, however.

    Frankel said the incident happened recently, and "has not been dealt with on the show."
