PETALING JAYA: PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar (pic) shared that she recently suffered an unfortunate miscarriage.

In a Facebook post, she explained that she had been busy travelling between Penang and Putrajaya for work when she lost her child.

“The little boot is gone,” she wrote in the post.

The revelation was accompanied by a photo of her hugging her parents, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and former deputy premier Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

“This would probably be the first time we have hugged since Nov 19,” she said, referring to the date of the 15th General Election last year.

Nurul Izzah lost the Permatang Pauh parliamentary seat in GE15 last year.

She said the family had gone through a lot together, from campaigning in the general election while she contracted Covid-19 for the second time, getting the news that she was pregnant, managing her new duties, as well as the constant travelling.

To top it all off, they then received the sad news of the loss of her child.

“So to those of you, well almost all of us, who have experienced loss, we can offer our ‘doa’ (prayer), a big virtual hug, and a reminder that life does go on.

“And the splendour of joy and happiness; it lurks in every corner – whether it’s the smiles of Safiyah, Harith and Yu Zhou – or in the warm embrace of my own papa and mama, every moment counts.

“Happy homecoming in every warmth you experience.

“Healing is a journey – and if you need to take some time to breathe in the moment, just do it; before the next chapter in life begins anew,” she added.

Nurul Izzah tied the knot with Yin Shao Loong in August last year.

She was previously married to businessman Raja Ahmad Shahrir Iskandar Raja Salim, who is the father of her two children, Raja Safiyah and Raja Harith.

Yu Zhou is Yin’s son from his previous marriage.
