Oprah Lost a Baby at 14!!!

Oprah Winfrey has stunned fans by revealing she lost a child when she was a young teenager.

The media mogul and talk show host tells all in the new issue of her namesake magazine, Oprah, admitting she was almost a mum at 14, after years of sexual abuse and "resulting promiscuity."

Best pal and Oprah editor Gayle King says, "She didn't really know who the father was of this child... and hid the pregnancy for a very long time."

Oprah reveals the baby, which was born prematurely, died shortly after birth.

King adds, "It was a secret that she carried for many years because she was very ashamed."

The media mogul felt she had to reveal all about her secret when an unnamed family member sold the story of Oprah's lost child to US tabloid the National Enquirer.

King reveals her friend was so upset about the family betrayal, she spent a weekend sobbing in bed..

She recalls, "It was a weekend where she just really had a breakdown."

But, in the article in the new Oprah, Winfrey insists the betrayal was a blessing in disguise.

She writes, "Having the secret out was liberating. Not until then could I begin the repair work on my spirit for the sexual abuse and damage done to me as a young girl."

No One said it was a secret after her family came out and talked about it.

She said she talks about it openly now

Sick family members...they will get theirs (and hopefully she knows who it was and cuts them off financially, if she was giving them anything!)
