Saab Magalona and Jim Bacarro lost their baby girl on February 8.

"On February 8, we lost our baby girl," wrote Saab Magalona in an emotional blog entry she posted early today, March 6.

It's been over a month since she gave birth to her twins with husband Jim Bacarro.

But the couple decided to stay silent as they needed time to accept what happened.

The 29-year-old mom continued, "I’ve stayed silent because I think I’ve been in denial.

"I thought keeping it to ourselves would make this whole thing unreal.

"This last month, I was in and out of the ICU [intensive care unit], and I almost didn’t make it."

At present, Saab's baby boy is at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of an undisclosed hospital.

The actress narrated, "Our baby boy is still in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The doctors initially said he was in critical condition.

"He has fought through so many complications, and had to undergo surgery, and is thankfully doing much better today.


"So many things happened in the last month.

"There are so many people we could blame and be angry with, but each time we hold our boy, we think otherwise.

"He’s been fighting to be part of this world, and it’s our responsibility to make it one that is forgiving—one that tries to see the best in other people."

She did not detail what exactly happened. Instead, she asked for prayers.

"That’s why we can only thank God for helping us get through the pain and lifting the anger from our hearts.

"We thank you for your concern and we ask that you continue to pray for our family, especially for our angel and for our baby boy."

Saab thought long and hard before sharing the sad news.

Today, March 6, which is also the ninth death anniversary of her dad Francis Magalona, she decided to "honor" her little girl.


"We are taking it one day at a time, focusing on all the good things we are blessed with.

"I am still alive, I have a strong and loving husband, and God has shown us so many miracles through our little boy.

"Publishing this means that this whole thing is real, but I can’t keep her a secret for much longer. I need to honor her.

"She was such a beautiful girl and we believe, she gave her life for me and her twin brother."

"Despite this tragedy, we have encountered so many heroes and kind people.

"We are thankful for family, for the doctors and nurses in the NICU, ICU and maternity ward, for the other babies and parents in the NICU that inspire us, for the strangers that smile at us.

"If you look hard enough, this doesn’t have to be such a scary world after all.

"I know we’ll make it through. ♥, JIM AND SAAB"
