Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, June 6) — Actress Heart Evangelista has lost her remaining baby, she revealed in a heartbreaking post on Instagram Wednesday.

Heart, Love Marie Payawal Ongpauco-Escudero in real life, shared that she learned this week the heart of her child with Senator Francis "Chiz" Escudero had stopped beating.

She said she would have named her Mira.

"I'm not looking for answers, just peace. For what it's worth, I already had a name for you. My Mira, funnily enough, I already loved your smile. I know you'll find your way back to me."

There are not enough words to express how heavy my heart feels but I know it’s important to share this because it’s part of my motherhood journey. At this week’s Doctor appointment, just as we hit the 3 month mark, we found out that her heart stopped beating. For some it might be early on but for us, we were so ready to meet you, little one. Carrying you made me feel like a completely new person. Just the thought of you taught me what unconditional love feels like. The Doctor told me that there really wasn’t anything we could’ve done, that this happens to a higher percentage of first time moms. I know this is true because so many of you have been open with sharing your experiences. Your kindness and positivity in sharing about your own miscarriages remind me to be strong. I am so grateful for all your love throughout this entire journey. It’s not the end, just another chapter. I take comfort knowing that you’re up there with your twin. I don’t question God about this sad time, I trust in His timing and plan. I hope you all understand that I’ll be taking some time off but your support and kind words will be felt, even if I’m not able to reply. I’m not looking for answers, just peace. For what it’s worth, I already had a name for you. My Mira, funnily enough, I already loved your smile. I know you’ll find your way back to me.
