April Love Geary opened up to her 178,000 followers about getting an abortion, just a few months before meeting her fiance Robin Thicke at a party back in 2014.
The 26-year-old model, who now shares three children with her soon-to-be husband, 43, spoke candidly about why she does not regret terminating her first pregnancy.
‘So my abortion story sucks, but I’ll talk about it,’ she said in an Instagram Live Q&A, after a fan asked her to address her ‘abortion and miscarriage’ and how she healed.

She continued: ‘Healing mentally, I just knew it was the right thing to do so that’s what’s always kept me feeling okay about the decision.’
After driving herself to an abortion clinic, Geary said she knew the man, who impregnated her, was ‘not the one’ after he took her ‘straight to the airport’ after the procedure.
‘You know, I did make the right decision cause, like, who does that after someone gets an abortion?’ she reflected as she sat in bed and credited therapy for helping her cope.

Despite never wavering in her decision, even on hard or ‘sad’ days, she knew she ‘made the right choice’ and would’ve been raising that child ‘by herself.’
‘I knew I wouldn’t be able to provide a good life for this child,’ she said. ‘It just wasn’t the right time for me. I don’t regret it.’
In 2019, the star said she got ‘a bunch of DMs’ for being pro-choice, even after becoming a mother, herself.
‘This is MY body, MY body after having an abortion in 2014 , delivering a baby in 2018 and 2019,’ she captioned a snap of herself pulling up shirt to showcase her stomach

She continued: ‘I’m glad I was able to make decisions about MY body without facing any type of punishment. It’s scary to think that women won’t be able to choose to abort if that’s what they want/what’s necessary.’
Earlier this week, she answered more fan questions, ranging from her diet and exercise to pregnancy related questions.

She revealed that she had welcomed her three kids Mia, two, Lola, one, and Luca, one month, via elective c-section as she spoke about the recovery process.
‘I had an elective c-section all three times because I’m terrified of natural birth so I just decided to have a major surgery instead,’ she joked.
One follower asked her about her post-pregnancy diet and exercise routine as she confessed:
‘I actually just got cleared to workout again, today, at my post-op appointment.’

She spoke about some pregnancy cravings and also offered fans support who were nervous about giving birth within the month as she told them to slide into her DMs.
Geary said that she would absolutely not be getting pregnant again this year as she said ‘F**k no.’
In December she said that being a mom of three had her ‘really tired’ before adding, ‘but these guys make it all worth it.’

The Blurred Lines singer popped the question to Geary in 2018 when she was pregnant with their first daughter together.
First being linked in 2015 after Thicke split from ex of ten year Paula Patton, the relationship faced criticism due to the 18-year age gap.
She announced the pair were pregnant with their third child in October as she wrote, ‘Sorry we can’t hang out, there’s a pandemic & I’m pregnant… again.’
Geary has garnered quite the sense of humor surrounding her frequent pregnancies as she likes to say, ‘we love consistency,’ with fans constantly assuming she is already gearing up for her next baby.
