'Bachelor' Alum Michelle Money Makes a Painful Confession About Her Past

After getting to know her on The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise, we can all pretty much agree that Michelle Money -- despite her drama -- would make an awesome BFF. And one of the things we love best about her? What a great mom she is to her daughter, Brielle. But Brielle isn't the only child she's had. In a surprising new revelation, Michelle says she placed a baby up for adoption when she was younger.


In a new promo for skincare product PMD, Michelle talks about the son she had when she got pregnant at 15, and the decision she made to give that baby to a family who could take the best possible care of him. It's clear that this is a huge part of Michelle's past that she doesn't want to forget, and it's awesome that she decided to be honest about it now. 

Michelle said: 

The decision to place this baby for adoption was not an easy one, but it was the right one .... It was bittersweet, the process of labor and the process of delivery and feeling love that I've never felt before. It rocked me, and so when the moment came and I had to say good-bye and hand him over to the social worker, it was the hardest thing I've ever done.

The video also includes photos of Michelle with her son shortly after his birth, and she explained how this event in her life changed who she is. She admitted that she lost herself for a while, but eventually, she was able to find her way -- and that it's made her hope that other people are able to find themselves the same way she did. 

We had no idea about this part of Michelle's past, so it's blowing our minds to hear about it now. That's not an easy choice to make, especially at 15, so she should feel so proud of herself! 

Just one more reason to love Michelle. You know, just in case you didn't already!
