49-Year-Old Actress Who Slapped TV Guest In IVF Row Loses Baby

A 49-year-old Russian actress has lost her baby after receiving in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment earlier this year.

Evelina Bledans made headlines in September after she slapped a guest on a TV chat show who criticised her decision in an extremely personal fashion.

Bledans is the mother of two boys, 24-year-old Nikolay and six-year-old, Senyon, who was born with Down syndrome. Audience member Elena Lebedeva questioned her pregnancy live on air, saying that nobody needed another child like Senyon.

She said: "It is dangerous to give birth between the ages of 35 and 40 so what about 49? What were you thinking? Do you want to give birth to another sick child?

"Will you give birth to another child with Down syndrome? Nobody needs such a child, not society and not you."

Understandably, Bledans did not take this comment well. A guest tried to tell the audience member to leave the studio, but before she had chance, Bledans made her way over and slapped her.

While administering the blow, she shouted: "You wretch, I will smack you! This is for my child, understand?

"You can say anything about me, but leave my children alone!"

The actress has since announced she has lost the baby in a post on social media.

She said: "I did not succeed to have baby daughters. I have two sons and they are my happiness and my love. I will dance and sing because my life continues."

Bledans had previously asked her social media followers to stop asking 'painful' questions about the pregnancy.

In a post, she said: "Things do not always turn the way you expected. Do not ask me about the
pregnancy, please! I do not want to comment on it.

"I just want to go on with my living and be glad of what I have."
