Several studies over the years have revealed that almost 10-25% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage.

Just because miscarriages are common, doesn't mean they are not devastating. Here are five celebrities who were brave enough to open up about their miscarriages.

Gwyneth Paltrow

In an interview with The Daily Mail, Paltrow revealed,"My children ask me to have a baby all the time. But I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third. It didn’t work out and I nearly died. So I am like, “Are we good here or should we go back and try again?’’"

Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan announced their pregnancy with the most unusual statement on Zuckerberg's public Facebook page: "You feel so hopeful when you learn you're going to have a child. You start imagining who they'll become and dreaming of hopes for their future. You start making plans, and then they're gone. It's a lonely experience. Most people don't discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you as if you're defective or did something to cause this. So you struggle on your own."

Model and actress Brooke Shields wrote about her miscarriage in her book, In Down Came the Rain. Shields discovered the bad news merely moments before she had to perform on stage.

Beyoncé

The otherwise fiercely private Beyoncé opened up about her miscarriage in her HBO documentary Life Is But A Dream. She said, "About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time and I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life. I picked out names, I envisioned what my child would look like... I was feeling very maternal. I flew back to New York to get my checkup—and no heartbeat. Literally, the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat. I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I've ever written in my life [called 'Heartbeat']. And it was actually the first song I wrote for my album. And it was the best form of therapy for me because it was the saddest thing I've ever been through."

The superstar recently broke the internet when she announced that she and Jay-Z were having twins.
