Kate Beckinsale opened up about a past tragedy on Friday, detailing a miscarriage she had “years ago” with a share from the All on the Board Instagram account. The condolences in the picture gave a sympathetic view on children lost at birth, perhaps with an attempt to ease the pain around miscarriages and lives shortly lived.

In Kate’s lengthy caption, she detailed the occasion for the post, saying how she noticed people were “criticizing” Chrissy Teigen for sharing “deeply intimate photos” of the recent loss of her baby.

As The Inquisitr reported on Wednesday, Chrissy and husband John Legend revealed their tragic loss in a series of photos, as Chrissy shared a long caption regarding her pregnancy and hospitalization and how her family was facing the “darkest of days.”

To express her condolences to Chrissy, Kate posted the written message about babies who are “born to be angels” and detailed a deeply personal event in her life when she lost a baby “at 20 weeks” and “collapsed inside.” The English actress and model went on to explain the “grief” and “shock” she endured, saying that it can be the “loneliest” period in one’s life.

To return to her original intention for the post, Kate thanked Chrissy for making it “abundantly clear” how “devastating” the experience can be and encouraged users to help lift up the grieving or “keep quiet.”

I’ve noticed people criticizing @chrissyteigen for sharing deeply intimate photos of the loss of her baby. As if there’s some protocol during soul-scouring calamity that, if not observed, emboldens people who do not know her or her family to say how she should be handling the unimaginable. Years ago, I lost a baby at 20 weeks. I had managed to keep my pregnancy quiet and I absolutely collapsed inside and no one would have known. There is grief, shame and shock so often that come with an experience like this, plus the heartbreak of your body continuing, after the loss, to act as if it had a child to nurture. Your milk comes in, with no one to feed. It can be the loneliest, most soul destroying period of time, particularly if you are not in the position of having an emotionally connected, supportive partner like Chrissy has. I think it’s an honour to be allowed into another persons grief, especially with a subject like this which so often puts a woman into that hall of mirrors state of life continuing as if the world hasn’t, for you ,come to a bloody and terrible halt. Sending so much love to the Legend family, but also so much to the women and couples who have kept it quiet and suffered. I know there are so many. Thank you @chrissyteigen for making sure it is abundantly clear how devastating this is, and how life changing it can be without support. Let’s let the grieving decide what’s right for them. Send support or keep quiet . This is a really hard time to bear .Blessings and hugs to all x
