Megan Fox has revealed a very personal and very painful thing.
In her new book of poetry, titled, “Pretty Boys Are Poisonous,” the veteran actress publicly admitted for the first time that she was more than two months pregnant with her and fiancé Machine Gun Kelly’s child. Suffered a miscarriage.
“There is an ultrasound next to your bed,” she writes in a poem, and says in simple words:
“10 weeks and 1 day.”
In a separate piece, Fox — who shares Noah, 10, Bodhi, 9, and Journey, 7, with ex-husband Brian Austin Green — reminisces about saying goodbye to her baby.
“I close my eyes and imagine,” she writes, “holding you tight to my chest.”
In an interview with Good Morning America about the collection, the star talked about her pregnancy loss this week in a little more detail.
“I have never been through anything like this in my life. I have 3 kids, so this was very hard for both of us and it sent us on a very wild journey together and separately… trying to navigate, ‘What does this mean?’ And ‘Why did this happen?'” she said on air.
Last year, while performing “Twin Flame” at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards, Machine Gun Kelly said he wrote the track for his “wife,” as a dedication that means so much more now:
“This is for our unborn child.”
On Twitter (yes, we’ll always call it that Twitter), Kelly later explained:
“Singing the end of that song broke my heart. I recorded Twin Flame 2 years ago today, the second part came out a year later. It’s a beautiful coincidence to get the chance to sing it for you tonight.”
In the poetry book, Fox writes about a baby girl’s ultrasound at 10 weeks and one day, sharing, “Maybe if you hadn’t… maybe if I had…”
Elsewhere, she says:
“I want to hold your hand/hear your laugh… but now/I have to say goodbye.”
Another line is about imagining holding a baby “like they’re ripping you out of me.”
“I will pay any price,” Fox writes. “Please tell me/What is the ransom/for his soul?”
In February, Fox hit back at claims that Kelly had cheated on her.
The couple, whose PDA-filled relationship made many headlines in the first several months of their relationship, has mostly been out of the headlines since these rumors broke on the internet in early 2023.
But they wore some pretty amazing Halloween costumes together last week.
While Fox and Kelly have gone through plenty of ups and downs since their romance began in 2020, the actress said on GMA that the musician encouraged her to write her book, which includes poems about their relationship.
“The person who actually told me I should write a poetry book is Colson,” she said on this broadcast, using her significant other’s real name.
“I think it was something inside me that had to come out, because it was going to make me sick.”
