Fox News Host Ainsley Earhardt Opens Up About Miscarriage in New Book

Playing Fox News Host Ainsley Earhardt Reveals Miscarriage in New Book

In her new book, "Fox & Friends" co-host Ainsley Earhardt is opening up about the despair she felt after suffering a miscarriage, and how her faith helped her find the strength to keep moving forward.

She told Inside Edition she hopes her memoir, "The Light Within Me," inspires readers.

"It's a collaboration of some of my journal entries, the ups and downs of my life, the hard times, the good times," she told Inside Edition's Megan Alexander.

The book, which came out earlier this month, details the miscarriage she suffered while carrying her first child.

"We heard the heartbeat," she said. "We told the family. We were so excited."

But when they returned for another appointment, there was tragic news.

"We saw our baby on the screen and there was no heartbeat," she said. "That was really difficult because we were so close."

She later gave birth to a baby girl named Hayden, who is now 2.

"This is not a book about, 'Hey, I'm on national television and I've done everything right and I'm perfect, this is what you should do,'" she said. "These are my faults, these are the times I fell down and how God got me back up."
