Alicia Vikander Looks Back at Suffering Miscarriage Before Welcoming Son with Michael Fassbender

Alicia on her miscarriage

In new interview with The Sunday Times, Alicia didn’t say exactly when she had a miscarriage, but revealed it was before she and husband Michael Fassbender welcomed their son in 2021.

She also said suffering a miscarriage mirrored the subject of her 2016 movie The Light Between Oceans, where she and Michael, 45, played a couple struggling to have a baby.

“We have a child now, but it took us time,” Alicia admitted. “[The miscarriage] was so extreme, painful to go through and, of course, it made me recall making that film. That film has another meaning now.”

Now that she is a mom, Alicia said that raising her son and continuing to work has been “intense,” adding, “Sometimes they came to the set just so he could see my face.”

Alicia also said she and Michael now take turns when it comes to being home with their son and working.

“We do every second job,” Alicia explained. “One stays at home while the other works.”

Also in the interview, Alicia opened up about the dark sides of fame.
