The popular American actor and director Corbin Bernsen, known for his role of divorce attorney Arnold Becker on the NBC drama series L.A. Law, is married with his wife, the British actress Amanda Pays, for more than 30 years, since 1988.
By the way, it’s his second marriage, as from 1983 till 1987 Corbin Bernsen was married with Brenda Cooper.
Worst day of life
While giving speech at the International Christian Media Convention in Orlando, Corbin Bernsen opened up about the worst day in his life and what it felt like losing a baby. He shared the tragic story of aborting a baby, and it was a truly sincere confession.
It happened shortly after the first pregnancy, and they were ready to become parents again.
My wife and I had our first child, we were madly in love as I am today, and loving it. 'L.A. Law' was happening and I was like, 'Let's have another baby. She had just quit her career as an actress and [was] loving the whole family thing.
But unfortunately, doctors declared the baby was not developing properly and had severe health problems.
We get pregnant [again], we find out it's going to be a boy and we name it Henry. We got his room, we're starting to get all the stuff together, we're taking stuff from the first baby and recycling it. … We go in for our last trimester checkup and the doctor looks at us and he says, 'We have a little problem, the amniotic fluid is not forming, the kidneys of the baby are disappearing.
The couple returned for another medical checkup, and heard some awful news about the baby. Turned out, there were danger for Amanda’s health, and most likely the baby wouldn’t make it to term.
A couple days later, we return and he says, 'I'm going to give you some very bad news. I'm not God and I can't tell you for sure but I'm 99.99 and a tenth percent this baby would not make it to term and even worse — Amanda (my wife) there's a danger to your health
And they had to make the worst decision in their life, to terminate the pregnancy.
So we made this choice, we go in for what you can't possibly tell me was not the worst day of my life and we terminate. You know you don't have to use all of the words like 'abortion' cuz they have these beautiful words that make it sound like it's okay, [but] it was the worst day of our life.
Corbin Bernsen says after the abortion God blessed them with twins. Nevertheless, he will never forget the lost baby.
Corbin Bernsen and his wife Amanda Pays have four amazing sons, Oliver, Angus, Henry and Finley. They have a big family and enjoy it a lot!
