Megan Fox reveals she suffered a miscarriage 10 weeks into pregnancy in her debut poetry collection.
In Pretty Boys Are Dangerous (out today), the actress recounts the loss of a baby girl in two sets of prose. "There is an ultrasound by your side of the / bed," Fox writes in the first, titled "i," adding, "Do you think that if she could have / she would have left a suicide note?"
In the second, titled "ii," Fox writes about having to say goodbye, as "I close my eyes / and imagine / holding you tight against my chest / as they rip you from my insides." She adds, "I will pay any price / tell me please / what is the ransom / for her soul?"
During a sit-down with Good Morning America on Tuesday, Fox opened up about the experience she endured with fiancé Machine Gun Kelly. "I've never been through anything like that in my life," the Expend4bles star said. "I have three kids, so it was very difficult for both of us and it sent us on a very wild journey together and separately . . . trying to navigate, 'What does this mean?' and 'Why did this happen?'"
Fox shares three sons with ex-husband Brian Austin Green. Machine Gun Kelly, real name Colson Baker, previously alluded to the miscarriage at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards, where he dedicated a performance of his song "Twin Flame" to Fox and "our unborn child." Fox's relationship with Baker is also explored in Pretty Boys Are Dangerous, as are her past relationships with abusive men.
“It's not an exposé that I wrote or a memoir ... But throughout my life, I have been in at least one physically abusive relationship and several psychologically very abusive relationships.”

"I just think it was something inside of me that had to come out because it was gonna make me sick," Fox told GMA of the poems, distinguishing that the collection is not by any means a memoir or exposé. Of writing the collection, she said, "It gives an elegant place for your pain to live — to put it into art makes it useful to other people. And so, you don't just suffer with it on your own."
