‘Jersey Shore’ Stars Mike & Lauren Sorrentino Reveal They Suffered a Miscarriage After Mike’s Release from Prison

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his wife Lauren are opening up about the miscarriage Lauren suffered after Mike’s release from prison.

The Jersey Shore Family Vacation stars revealed during an appearance on Good Morning America on Monday that they conceived a baby on the night in September that Mike was released after spending eight months behind bars.

“Being the Type A personality that I am, while Mike was away, I was tracking my cycle,” Lauren said. “It worked out perfectly that when he came home I was ovulating within two days. So the night he came home we actually conceived.”

Sadly, though, around seven weeks into the pregnancy, she miscarried the baby.

“It was heart-wrenching,” Lauren said. “When I found out we were pregnant I felt like this is why we went through all these challenges for years and that this was our time and it was our blessing.”

Lauren said they relied on their faith to get them through the difficult time.

“Especially the challenging things we’ve gone through, if I didn’t have my faith I wouldn’t be here,” she said. 

Lauren and Mike agreed to publicly reveal the miscarriage because they felt it may help others going through the same heartbreak.

“We’ve shared so much of our life, and we’ve already shared so many negative things that we’ve gone through that I didn’t want to hold this in,” Lauren said. “I wanted to share it for other people going through it and just be honest so I can kind of heal through the process.”

Mike and Lauren celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary on November 1. The couple has been very vocal about wanting to start a family.

“We are both one of four kids, so I think we definitely think the more the merrier, but it gets expensive!” Lauren told People in May 2018, one month after she got engaged to Mike.  “So we’ll have to see. Definitely more than one.”

“But one at a time, for sure,” Mike added.

  1. I am pretty sure that us women know that there is a possibility of a miscarriage (no matter whether it is their first, second, third or even tenth pregnancy).

    And happiness and overwhelming joy are common reactions. And I dare this Amy girl or anybody else for that matter to say it is wrong to express these reactions.


  2. I was aware how common first trimester miscarriages are so I cringe a bit when people announce too everyone that they are expecting at 2-3 weeks and are already planning time off rooms, holidays, etc. I may sound harsh but the body knows when a foetus will be abnormal and not viable with life. Miscarriages could be related to others things but that is the primary reason for early miscarriages. Chemical pregnancies exist as well so until you have seen a heartbeat try to temper your expectations.


    1. I understand what you’re saying, but there really is no safe time. Yes, 1st trimester loss is more common, but I’ve seen a lot of really sad endings to pregnancy. I’m not trying to be negative, but If people waited until it was completely safe, they wouldn’t announce til that baby was safely born.


      1. Plus why should you have to be secretive about being pregnant? The people I would be excited to tell, would also be the same people I would want there for me if there was a loss. Because no one is supposed to talk about pregnancy before first trimester ends, if there’s a loss, one has to suffer by themselves which sucks.


    2. I never comment on anything, but what you said about so called “chemical pregnancy” is misleading. It just means there was a very early loss of a baby, but a baby was there at one time. It was a real pregnancy. No one should feel forced to hide what they are going through when it comes to losing a child.


  3. I feel so sorry for Mike and Lauren, they have been through so much already ! I’m sure God will bless them with another baby !


  4. I don’t know why doctors don’t warm more women if now increfibly common miscarriages are. They’d be so much better prepared just in case.


    1. 10-20% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. Many more than that happen but most women aren’t tracking their cycle so they just assume when they’ve had an early loss, that it’s just a heavy period. First pregnancies do not have higher odds of miscarriage though. Most of the time it’s due to chromosomal abnormalities. I had 3 losses. 2 were tested and that wasn’t the case for me. After 2 years and many test and procedures, found out my prolactin hormone level was way too high. I had no idea how common miscarriages were till I had my first loss. It was only then that I realized when people offered their condolences and shared their own experiences. It’s a shame that it’s not talked about more because it’s terrible to feel so alone during such a tragic loss.
