After many losses, Canadian actor Alexander Ludwig and his wife Lauren are expecting their first child together. On Saturday, Feb. 11, the 30-year-old actor shared on Instagram a mirror image of the couple stroking Lauren’s baby bump while their dog, Yam, sat next to them.
In addition, the actor added a lengthy caption that read:
“It’s been a long journey and we wanted to wait for things to look positive this time around.”
They stated that the child would be born in May 2023.
Lauren Ludwig, wife of Alexander Ludwig, is the inventor of the gender-neutral jewelry trade THEIR.
Lauren Ludwig was born on December 16, 1991 in Canada. According to her Instagram account, she is the creator of THEIR, a gender neutral jewelry company that uses recycled materials. She oversaw marketing efforts for VRAI, a Los Angeles-based luxury goods and jewelry company. On a personal level, Alexander Ludwig and Lauren announced their romance on Instagram in July 2020. The Hunger Games actor proposed in November of the same year and the couple got married. In December 2020, they got married at The Lodge, just outside of Salt Lake City.
On Instagram, Alexander Ludwig announced the news, writing:
“We made the decision to leave. It’s been a tumultuous year but it certainly put things into perspective. Life is too short and I didn’t want to go another day without being able to call this beautiful lady my wife. ”
In a recent Instagram post announcing their pregnancy, Alexander Ludwig revealed that the couple endured three miscarriages before their current pregnancy, “but each of those losses taught us about ourselves and each other.” However, they assured miscarriage victims that they are not alone and that “there is light on the other side of your journey.” Lauren revealed in an open Instagram post in May 2022 that the couple had experienced a third pregnancy loss.
“Last week @alexanderludwig and I had our third miscarriage. I’ve chosen to share because I don’t believe there’s any shame in talking about it. I want people to understand how common miscarriages are and that they are nothing to be ashamed of.”
She continued that after such a traumatic loss, she discovered she wasn’t alone, and that while it’s common, “it isn’t talked about nearly enough.”
“Maybe if more of us talked about these things, we’d feel less alone and less guilty. I believe knowledge is power, and I want to start sharing more of it.”
Alexander Ludwig’s future appearances will be in Marked Men and The Covenant.
