Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers and his wife, Mara Lane, revealed that she recently suffered a miscarriage with their second baby, and when Meyers (who is a recovering alcoholic) heard the devastating news, he went back to drinking. 


In her extremely heartfelt Instagram post, Lane wrote:

"With much sadness, we open our hearts to share that J and I lost our second child, who was baking in the oven. Child was very very much wanted (right now especially by J, so he took the news particularly not so well) and we are still working with coping skills over here ... when life throws us curve balls such as these."

After sharing the news, she then addressed Meyers's relapse:

"Depression is a real concern from past abuse as well as alcoholism which he was born with. He has been able to turn any ugliness and hurt in his life into art and is the strongest person I know. I do not know anyone who has been through what he has been through and reached his level of successes. It does seem though that every time we seem to be making so much progress ... sometimes it's like two steps forward, one step back. 

She then thanked her family and friends for their support and continued to express her own support of her husband. She also acknowledged the recent photos taken of Meyers while he was being escorted out of Dublin Airport for allegedly being too intoxicated to board a flight. Lane says they "forgive" the person who took the photos of him. 

"To some others, my husband is an Irishman who battles alcoholism and depression and drank between jobs to try to cope with the sadness of this news. I am trying to and still learning/adjusting to living with the public, like one would as a concerned mother-in-law. I feel that whomever took photos of my husband was slightly in the wrong and was concerned for the wrong reasons but ... it's ok. It's ok. Maybe you have/had a family to feed and need/needed money? I don't know. We forgive you."

She ended the post by reassuring her followers that Meyers is safe and she even offered some positivity, stating, "Life is life. Life is beautiful."

"He is safe and with his sober living companion and bodyguard to get into a detox closer to home since he was denied hospital help twice in Ireland because of an already two month wait period. 

"Life is life. Life is beautiful. Life is tough sometimes though so let's try not looking down at someone unless we intend on helping them up."
