Host Savannah Guthrie asked Frankel, who is the mother of 21-month-old daughter Bryn, if she and her husband Jason were thinking of having more children.
“It’s a very personal question that I do get asked a lot,” Frankel told Guthrie. “We were pregnant with a second baby, and at eight weeks, I miscarried.”
Frankel went on to explain that the difficult experience helped her to sympathize with other women who struggle to get pregnant. “Until you become a woman you don’t know the things that come with being a woman,” an emotional Frankel said on the show. “And I’m 41, and I don’t know. It’s not really my choice. It’s not really my option. The window’s closing.”

Guthrie also asks Frankel about a health scare she had when an antibiotic burned a hole in her esophagus.
