Turner Sports sideline reporter Allie LaForce has been open and candid about her journey to have a baby, using social media to document the highs and the lows—including a miscarriage.
“I just didn’t feel right not sharing because I don’t want women to think that something’s wrong with them when there’s nothing wrong with them. We’re all going through our own personal journey. We all have struggles,” LaForce told CBS News’ Dana Jacobson.
The struggle for LaForce and her husband, MLB pitcher Joe Smith, has been to have a baby born without Huntington’s disease—a genetic condition that causes the breakdown of nerve cells in the brain.
