A broken-hearted Saab Magalona shared on her blog that she and her husband Jim Bacarro lost their baby girl last February. They were supposed to have twins, a boy and a girl.

"On February 8, we lost our baby girl. Our baby boy is still in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit,” she said and added that her son underwent surgery and is doing better.

“So many things happened in the last month. There are so many people we could blame and be angry with, but each time we hold our boy, we think otherwise. He’s been fighting to be part of this world and it’s our responsibility to make it one that is forgiving — one that tries to see the best in other people,” she said.

Saab also said that the reason she stayed silent was maybe because she was in denial and thought, “Keeping it to ourselves would make this whole thing unreal.” But it came to a point where she needed to “honor” her daughter and face the truth.

“We are taking it one day at a time, focusing on all the good things we are blessed with. I am still alive, I have a strong and loving husband, and God has shown us so many miracles through our little boy,” she said.

“Publishing this means that this whole thing is real but I can’t keep her a secret for much longer. I need to honor her. She was such a beautiful girl and we believe she gave her life for me and her twin brother.”

She then thanked everyone who supported her during the ordeal.
