The Young and the Restless star Melissa Claire Egan is getting a lot of love from her fans and from the entertainment community this week.
The actress, who is best known for her role as Chelsea Lawson on the hit CBS soap, recently opened up about her devastating experience with her first miscarriage. And now she’s reaching out to her fans to tell them that she definitely appreciates all of the love and support she’s gotten since opening up about her very personal heartache.
The brunette beauty took to her Instagram account to write, “I can’t put into words how truly touched I am by your kind words, comments, texts, DM’s, and your stories since my post about my miscarriage in January. I was really hoping I could help some people by sharing my story, but I didn’t realize how much it would truly help ME in return. I’ve read every single one of your comments and stories and I’m so happy this can hopefully open the conversation about miscarriages or the taboo associated with it.”
It didn’t take very long for Melissa’s social media fans to respond and share their stories, too. Many of her fans replied with, “I totally feel your pain. I had 3 miscarriages & 1 still born before I finally gave birth to by Rainbow,” along with, “It’s so important to talk about this stuff. There’s no room for shame, when this type of loss is so very damaging to the hearts and souls of so many women and men.”
