Alex PenaVega revealed that the experience of a stillbirth affected both her mental and physical health.

“This season I learned so much about pain with intention,” the 35-year-old actress shared in an emotional Instagram video on Wednesday, May 15. “Losing Indy was very hard and right after I lost her my health got a lot worse and no one could figure out what was wrong. And it was a very difficult time for all of us, but I don’t think I’ve ever given myself to God in that way in my life.”

Drawing on her faith, PenaVega said she would pray: “‘God, give meaning to this pain. Every time my body feels pain, God, turn it into purpose, whether it’s moving what’s in my body out, whether it’s pushing those emotions through my body. God, whatever it is, don’t let this pain go to waste.’”

Alexa continued to talk about her family and her husband Carlos Pena Vega “has never been stronger” despite her emotional loss. “My faith has never been stronger. My marriage has never been stronger,” she added. “Our life, her life, was so purposeful in the short time we spent with her. And while she may not have taken a breath here on Earth, she didn’t leave without purpose.” (Alexa and Carlos, 34, share sons Ocean, 7, and Kingston, 4, and daughter Rio, 2.)

Carlos previously opened up Us weekly about how difficult pregnancy can be for both partners. “She’s my best friend. That’s why I always say, ‘Listen, nine months of pregnancy is hard on the wives, but it’s definitely hard on the husbands,'” he shared exclusively in November 2023. “You lose your best friend. And then not only in those nine months, but after those nine months, she’s still gone for a while.”

Alexa agreed with her husband’s comments, adding, “A lot of women say, ‘I don’t care, I don’t care.'” I say, “No, he really has to give up a lot.” Husbands have to give up a lot.”
