The list of celebrities who have had miscarriages is long and representative of how common this loss is. A miscarriage is the natural death of a baby still in its mother's womb. A miscarriage can be a heartbreaking experience for an expectant mother. Most miscarriages occur during the first trimester of pregnancy and pregnancies with more than one baby are considered high risk. Celebrity or not, each woman who deals with a miscarriage has her own unique experience and deals with her grief in different ways. Perhaps reading a list of famous people who have had miscarriages can bring some solace to grieving parents and act as a way for them to know that they are not alone. 

Who is the most famous person to suffer a miscarriage? Jennifer Aniston tops our list. The Friends star reportedly suffered multiple miscarriages during her marriage to Brad Pitt. Biographer Ian Halperin claims that the second miscarriage may have been the beginning of the end of their relationship. Aniston has not spoken publicly about any miscarriages, but other celebrities have. Beyonce Knowles documented her experience in her HBO documentary Life is But a Dream.

Singer Mariah Carey has been very open about her struggles with getting pregnant. In interviews she has spoken about her heartbreaking miscarriage. She is now the mother of beautiful twins. (Their father is her ex-husband, Nick Cannon.) Other famous women who have had miscarriages include Baywatch star Pamela Anderson, Some Like it Hot actress Marilyn Monroe, Breakfast at Tiffany's star Audrey Hepburn, Demi Moore, Courteney Cox, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Eyes Wide Shut star Nicole Kidman.
