If fans of Are You The One? alum Taylor Selfridge have been missing her on social media, she's recently revealed some sad news. The MTV star- who announced her pregnancy with actor Cory Wharton in October- revealed that they had lost one of their twins.
The 25-year-old took to Instagram to say, "Ok I didn’t think it would be a big deal to take a break from social media but apparently it is because everyone seems to think I’m missing now please don’t believe this stuff. I’m doing just fine, I’m happy, healthy, our baby is healthy. A few days after the announcement we found out we were supposed to actually have twins [and I] ended up losing on of them. But on the positive side, my baby is healthy! And I’m 19 weeks now.”
Eighty percent of miscarriages mostly happen in the first 13 weeks of pregnancy, and carrying twins increases the chances of miscarriage. Taylor must have been somewhere around 12 weeks along when she lost one of their twins.

I’ve been debating on what to say and how to exactly say it, And I found that I just want to talk from the heart quick. I’m excited to say that YES Taylor is pregnant!!!! 🤰🏼 Ryder is going to be a big sister, o boyyy 😂 I also wanted to let you guys know that we weren’t trying to have a baby right now, but sometimes God puts things into your life that you don’t really understand at the time but it’s always turns out to be a bigger blessing. I’m really excited to share this journey with you guys. All that I ask from you guys is respect for Taylor, respect for me and most importantly respect for the baby. All that I want is a healthy baby that is brought into a very positive environment and surround by good energy and love.The same way that I am raising Ryder. This is a very exciting time for mine and Taylor’s families. Never did I think by 28 I would have two children but here we are 😊 I know I probably didn’t answer everybody’s questions I’ll be going live today at some point. I also want everyone to head over to @usweekly listen to the interview that we did with them we answer a lot of your guys questions. Be safe my people love you guys and baby number two😁✌🏽
Cory has also been missing from social media for quite some time, and now we know why. Losing a baby isn't easy- but thankfully, Taylor is going strong. She's staying positive, which is vital for the health of their other baby.
There have been rumors that the couple was going through a rough patch after Cory was suspected to be cheating on Taylor while in upstate New York. However, that's somehow not the case! Furthermore, according to the reality TV gossip site The Ashley, Cory is now threatening legal action against the accuser.
The couple revealed their pregnancy news when Taylor was in her 11 weeks. Wharton had shared the news with Us saying, “It was definitely a surprise.”
The Challenge star is a father to a 2-year-old daughter whom he shares with ex Cheyenne Floyd. But he never knew that Ryder was his daughter till she was six months old. So, this is the first time he's experiencing fatherhood from the initial days of their baby’s life.

The 28-year-old father excitedly adds, “Just being there from the day she found out that she’s pregnant and knowing that it was mine, I knew that I was going to have to step up. It’s exciting for me. It’s gonna be a lot, but I'm excited. I never went to an ultrasound, you know?"
He then retrospected, "I never went to the doctor's appointments to see her check-ups and things like that. So for me, this is like my first baby almost, as weird as that sounds."
The couple has met on the set of season one of Ex on the Beach. They began dating after the show, and despite a brief split, they have been going steady for two years now. Hopefully, there are no further rumors of their cheating, and the that couple stays with each other.
