Vanessa Marcil made waves in November 2017 when she announced that she and her fiancé were going to be parents. And that news was likely a huge deal for Marcil, as she had already suffered six miscarriages while attempting to add another child to her family. What’s more, since the star would go on to reveal her baby’s gender in January 2018, this particular pregnancy may have seemed to be progressing well. In time, though, Marcil would give an update that saddened her fans.
Marcil herself, meanwhile, is perhaps most recognizable for playing Brenda Barrett on General Hospital – firstly from 1992 to 1998, then for shorter follow-up stints in the ’00s. In fact, she even ended up being nominated for three Daytime Emmys for her performance as Barrett, winning one in 2003. And after first leaving the long-running soap, the actress appeared in Beverly Hills, 90210, where she portrayed Gina Kincaid.
