Jenni Farley, known as JWoww, reveals on Thursday she suffered a miscarriage in 2011 before the production of Jersey Shore in Italy.
Farley got real during an emotional conversation with Mike Sorrentino, also known as "The Situation," on the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, as she told him about a painful loss that happened just before they start filming for the fourth season of the reality show in Italy. Little did people know that she was having a tough time during the run.
The 32-year-old admitted she wasn't in a good place back then because she was just reeling from the death of her grandmother when she and now-husband Roger Matthews lost the baby.
"Right before Italy, like three or four weeks before Italy, my grandmother passed. And me and Roger actually lost a baby, like I ended up pregnant. Not a lot of people know," Farley explained.
She had to be put under medication, such as Xanax, that made her groggy. This was why she also took "uppers." Despite the ordeal, Farley and her husband made it through. Now, the couple are proud parents to two children, Meilani Alexandra, 3, and Greyson Valor, 1.
Right before her eldest came, Farley explained in a blog post that she had a miscarriage scare. She narrated that she was at the airport when she decided to go to the bathroom. Then she saw blood and immediately panicked, thinking she loss another bundle of joy.
She told her husband about it and she prayed hard that it was just something that normally happens to pregnant women. Thankfully, it was a false alarm. On Christmas Day, Farley shared the good news with her followers. After two years of being engaged, she and Matthews tied the knot in 2015 with Meilani at their side as the flower girl.
Working The Kinks Out
In 2016, Farley revealed that her marriage was far from perfect, but that she and Matthews were working hand in hand on the misunderstandings. She also gave light on their problems as parents, including woes on the choice of school for the kids or how to raise them.
Amid the bumps, she stressed they find a common ground to find "happy medium," especially now that divorce is rampant. Farley further referred to Matthews as her "best friend," who can call her out for her wrongdoings.
"He's the only person in this world that puts me in my place, so I actually respect him even more for that," she said.
