“I’m this different person when I’m on these shows — like, there’s nothing that’s gonna stop me from getting what I want or trying to get what I want,” the Amazing Race alum exclusively told Us Weekly at the time. “It was, like, this weird wave of happiness, shock, surprise, disappointment. I didn’t even process what I was actually feeling. I was just like, ‘How am I pregnant? I want to win this money!’”

The New Jersey native called her sister, Nadiya Anderson, to tell her she about the pregnancy after the MTV production team had her take a test. Natalie later told Us it was “the most awkward” way to discover the news because she was filming in Iceland while her now-fiancé was at home.

“It could have been an amazing feeling, but I didn’t have the opportunity to feel like that because I was just so confused and torn about having to leave the game, but also was super excited and happy,” she said of the whirlwind experience.

Once the CrossFit trainer returned to the U.S., her doctor confirmed that she was eight weeks pregnant. Unfortunately, Natalie miscarried one week later.

“I went through a miscarriage, and it was really difficult because I had just kind of come to peace with leaving the game and saying goodbye to the competition of the challenge, which I love, came back home and changed my mindset into this new journey. And that was then taken away from me. It was hard for me,” the MTV personality told Us in January. “I just did everything I needed to do to make peace with what had happened and embrace the difficulty of everything, but also use it as a way to strengthen my bond with my boyfriend.”

Natalie, who has been dating Perez for more than two years, noted at the time that the loss became a “make or break” moment for the couple.

“It was so much emotion and I’m just really proud of coming out of this,” she added. “I was dreading the show airing because it would remind me of everything I’d gone through. I did everything that I could in my power to kind of make peace with my journey and I’m just really proud of where I am right now and where we are together.”
