Cher Opens Up About Four Miscarriages

CHER was more relieved than most first-time mums when she gave birth to daughter CHASTITY after suffering four miscarriages in the mid-1960s.
The superstar has opened up about the pregnancy problems that she and her husband Sonny Bono experienced early in their marriage, admitting she grew tired of announcing her baby news to family and friends and then having to tell them of a miscarriage.
She tells Parade.com, "I lost four kids before Chaz. It's a spontaneous miscarriage, something that spontaneously aborts the foetus. It's called an angry uterus.
"It took a long time for someone to tell me that that's what it was. It just starts to contract, for no reason. After the third time it got to be a nightmare. People would be congratulating me because I was pregnant, and then I wouldn't be, and then they would be like, 'Oh, we're so sorry.' I thought, 'God, I don't want to have to hear this anymore.'"
Chastity, 41, has since undergone gender reassignment surgery to become a man and is now known as Chaz.
