Olivia Plath Opens Up About Her Tragic Loss

As "Welcome to Plathville" fans know, Olivia Plath and her husband Ethan wed in 2018 after enduring a long-distance relationship (via Distractify). The 23-year-old reality star has been vocal on social media about contending with a lot in her life since marrying her husband and being on TV, including moving away from her family, and clashing with her in-laws (via Cheat Sheet). So, perhaps it will come as no surprise that Plath feels she is not quite ready to be a mom. How she came to that realization was through a recent loss.

In a clip for an upcoming episode of the popular TLC show, we see Plath explaining to her sister-in-law Moriah that after she suffered a miscarriage, she felt "glad" (via Us Weekly). The photographer added, "I felt like I was wrong for feeling that way, and I wish I'd had more people to talk to who could've been a sounding board or who could've had a different perspective, maybe, than what I was raised with." Of course, Plath is referring to her conservative Christian upbringing.

Plath had more to say about the loss, and also shared how Ethan felt in the clip.

Olivia Plath wants kids someday but not now

As the reality star went on to tell Moriah about her loss in the clip of the episode, "I felt bad for being relieved, but I was so relieved because it was, like, a wake-up call of, like, 'I'm not ready to have a kid. I don't want a kid" (via Us Weekly).

Meanwhile, if fans are wondering how Ethan felt about the miscarriage, his wife said he was "just as relieved."

In 2020, Plath told People, "Ethan and I both love kids. We're both from large families, and we would definitely love to have a couple of kids. I think our ideal would be to have a few of our own and then adopt a few. But I also know that in many ways, we're not ready for kids and the fact that we need to heal and process our own childhoods before we bring another child into the world."

She added she was in therapy to "take positive steps for a better childhood for [future kids]. And maybe once we've seen a little bit more of the world and made a couple more memories, I think maybe we'd be ready for a couple of kids."
