Megan Fox is opening up about a difficult time in her life following the release of her new book of poetry, Pretty Boys Are Poisonous.
In a sit-down about the collection with Good Morning America, the actor addressed a miscarriage she had after conceiving a baby with partner Machine Gun Kelly (real name Colson Baker).
“I’d never been through anything like that in my life. I have three kids, so it was very difficult for both of us, and it sent us on a very wild journey together and separately … trying to navigate What does this mean? and Why did this happen?” she said.
Fox is mom to sons Noah Shannon Green, 10, Bodhi Ransom Green, nine, and Journey River Green, six, from her marriage to actor Brian Austin Green. They split in 2020 after 10 years of marriage and finalized their divorce in 2022. Fox and MGK began dating in late 2020 and got engaged in 2022. The rapper is dad to daughter Casie Colson Baker, 14, from his relationship with Emma Cannon.
In her book, Fox writes about an ultrasound of a baby girl, 10 weeks and a day into a pregnancy. She writes, “maybe if you hadn’t… maybe if i had…”
“I want to hold your hand / hear your laugh,” she writes, “but now / I have to say / goodbye.” Another line is about imagining holding the baby “as they rip you from my insides.”
“I will pay any price,” Fox continues. “Tell me please / what is the ransom / for her soul?”
The GMA interview is the first time Fox has confirmed the meaning behind the poem and spoken of the heartbreaking miscarriage.
