Tragedy too in­ti­mate to be shared

Scottish Daily Mail - - Front Page -

MY heart goes out to ac­tor Jonathan Rhys Mey­ers and his wife Mara Lane, who re­cently lost a baby to mis­car­riage.

In an at­tempt to ex­plain why her hus­band was hav­ing an al­co­hol re­lapse (he has been in re­hab a num­ber of times and was pho­tographed last week ‘stag­ger­ing around’ Dublin air­port), Mara posted a lengthy mes­sage on In­sta­gram about the tragic event. Fair enough, and com­pletely un­der­stand­able. Yet two days later she fol­lowed it up with a video show­ing the mo­ment her doc­tor in­formed her the foe­tus didn’t have a heart­beat.

I un­der­stand that the pair are griev­ing but I won­der if over-shar­ing such in­ti­mate in­for­ma­tion is an act they will one day live to re­gret.
