Sharon Stone Nearly Lost Her Life Due To Health Issues That Led To Miscarriages. Now She's A Happy Mom Of 3 Adopted Kids

Date August 27, 2019

Many women want to become mothers but achieving this isn't always so easy. Actress Sharon Stone had a rough road but she never let it deter her from her goal.

Happy mom, happy kids

Today, anyone who follows the Basic Instinct star on social media will appreciate just how happy she is with her three gorgeous children.

She has shared a few pictures of her kids to her fans' delight and she isn't afraid to open up about how they came into her life.

A tough road to motherhood

According to Daily Mail, Sharon Stone's dream of being a mother initially came to a halt when she was told she had an autoimmune condition that would make it difficult for her to carry a pregnancy to term.

When she was married to her (now ex) husband Phil Bronstein, the couple tried to have kids but because of her health problems, Sharon suffered two devastating miscarriages.

Sharon and Phil then decided to speak to an adoption attorney and during her last miscarriage, she got a silver lining when she was told they could adopt a newborn named Roan in 2000. While opening up about the experience to AARP, Sharon said;

The last time I lost the baby … I went into 36 hours of labor. While we were at the hospital, our adoption attorney called … I thought, ‘This is such a godsend’ … ‘This is so right.'

One year later, Sharon suffered a health setback when doctors discovered that her vertebral artery had ruptured which caused a brain hemorrhage.

By then I had bled into my spinal column, my brain, and my facial cavity at a steady pace, My brain was pushed forward into my face. I'd lost 18 percent of my body mass.

She underwent surgery and doctors battled to save her life. But things were still rough for a while.

They saved my life. I came out of the hospital with short- and long-term memory loss. My lower left leg was numb. I couldn't hear out of my right ear.

As if that wasn't enough to break the actress, Sharon and Phil soon started having problems in their marriage. They were having difficulties communicating and connecting.

In 2004, she had to cope with a painful divorce from her husband and after a rough custody battle, she didn't get to keep their adopted son Roan.

When the court made the decision to give Phil custody of Roan, Sharon said it was because she had a brain hemorrhage and made controversial movies. Despite that, she wanted her boy to know she loved and supported him.

Sharon Stone later adopted two more sons Laird and Quinn, and so far, things are looking up. She said she enjoys raising her little ones and her kids have been her priority right from the start.

"I’m now a single mother with three adopted sons," she said, adding that she considered it a great privilege to raise her kids.

A child's pride

In 2017, Sharon was presented with the 'Mother of the Year' award by her sons at the Associates For Breast and Prostate Cancer Studies (ABCs) Mother’s Day Luncheon. In his speech, Laird said his mom deserved the award while Quinn described Sharon as a loving and caring person.

Roan recalled the advice his mother gave to him which was "to treat others the way you would want to be treated." A touched Sharon Stone said;

I’m grateful my kids chose me, I am a lucky mom.

Sharon Stone may have had a tough experience but she never stopped trying to make her dreams come true. And today, her kids are just as thrilled to have her in their lives.
