Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel went on the Today show on Monday, and revealed a bit of information that surprised and saddened some fans of the reality TV homemaker and businesswoman.

Frankel- who is 41 and mom to a 21-month-old- revealed that after the birth of her daughter, she had experienced a painful miscarriage. The celebutante describes the pain and grief she experienced after the traumatic event, explaining a cavalcade of emotions after the miscarriage:

“We were pregnant with a second baby, and at eight weeks I miscarried… And that was a very emotional experience, and it had a lot of different things that came with it. There are so many emotional things that come with it that it’s hard to really put into a small conversation. You go through a roller coaster of emotions about it- about your age, about being a woman, about can you have another baby, about are you a failure to your partner, about what if my husband married someone younger.”

Frankel expressed that while the miscarriage was painful, it also made her grateful to have given birth to a healthy daughter:

“Thinking about women who can’t have their own baby- even the first baby. I mean, I’m really lucky, I have the most beautiful daughter in the world, and I’m grateful for her. But I didn’t know- until you become a woman, you don’t know the things that come with being a woman.”

She continued:

“I honestly, truthfully have thought about other women more than myself. In many cases I don’t do that, but in this particular case the first thing that I thought about was, ‘Oh my god, I can’t believe what people must go through if they can’t even have the one.’ I mean my baby’s still young- she’s 21 months, so I’m still enjoying her being a baby, and I love that.”

Frankel says that she and husband Jason Hoppy are still interested in adding to their family, but at her age, that the “window’s closing.”
