The actress Melissa Gilbert, famous actress opened up about her relationship with the actor Rob Lowe and explained how the pregnancy led the couple to a breaking up.

Melissa tells People magazine that she met Rob when she was 17 and he was 14 years old, but she just “fell instantly, hopelessly and stupidly in love” with the actor. “I felt like I was starving for Rob. … He wrote me poetry. He cooed the sweetest messages into my answering machine,” she says of her romance with Lowe.

Gilbert explains that in 1986, Lowe proposed to her and before the wedding, she found out she was pregnant — that was the beginning of the changements for the couple. “Finally, with [Rob's] voice trembling and tears in his eyes he said very softly, ‘I can’t be a father,’ Before I could respond, he said, ‘I can’t be a husband. I’m so sorry,’” she describes to People about their breakup.

The actress ended up feeling “totally alone.”

“I had lost my baby and my relationship with Rob. …and it hurt like hell.”
