Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and ‘Laurens’ haven’t let their miscarriage define their situation 

After “The Situation” was released from prison in September 2019, he and his wife immediately started trying to start a family. They conceived the night he returned home but lost the baby six or seven weeks later. 

“It was hard,” Lauren admitted on Good Morning America. “I didn’t want to hold this in. I wanted to share it for other people going through it and just be honest so I can kind of heal through the process.” 

But as the “Situations” are wont to do, they didn’t give up. After healing, they picked themselves back up and tried again.

Lauren confirmed that they were “definitely still trying” to get pregnant in July 2020 during an interview with In Touch. Now, the Sorrentinos are happy to announce a healthy pregnancy.
