LOS ANGELES, Jan. 4 (UPI) -- General Hospital star Kimberly McCullough shocked fans recently when she revealed how she had suffered from a late miscarriage.
McCullough broke the news Sunday on her personal blog while recounting her tumultuous 2015. As the actress explained, the past year was filled with both happiness and heartbreak.
"My heart was so full and then it broke," the 37-year-old wrote of losing her baby daughter right after losing her beloved dog Melba.
"It was too much. I didn't need to learn this lesson. I wasn't interested," she continued. "But I wasn't in control. These things happen and no, I don't believe they happen 'for a reason.' I'm still processing, still healing, but anyone who has gone through it knows, losing a baby at 22 weeks is tragic. One thing I am proud of however was that I allowed myself to be happy and to relish the moment. I sat in all that goodness and I can recall those feelings (when I'm having different ones) and hope that it can be like that again."
Still, McCullough looked on the bright side and noted how she obtained a new dog Jack, reunited with her General Hospital costars and how she plans on making a new film.
"Spending time with Jack, my emotional support dog (ha) and dancing again (hip-hop) is how I ended out my year," she wrote. "I also got to spend time with my General Hospital family and see my good friend Jason Thompson off, hopefully to greener pastures. I'm really proud of the work we did, not just this go around but over the last ten years. I made a great friend (JT), I gained a TV Daughter (the most precious soul on the planet) and got to tell an important and at times, really fun story."
"Not to go total Oprah on you, but at the end of this year and the beginning of the next, I am grateful for it all," she concluded. "Tired. But grateful."
McCullough last made headlines in October when it was announced that she would be returning as Robin Scorpio on General Hospital.
