Losing a baby can be a traumatic experience for any expectant mother. Anger, grief, disbelief and a host of other emotions come and go during that time. Oprah Winfrey was barely 14 when she lost her baby. The child was premature and now she shared that she had already selected a name for her deceased son.

During a recent speaking engagement in Austrailia, Oprah Winfrey opened up to the nearly twelve thousand fans. The sixty-one-year-old was completely candid she spoke about her disturbing childhood.

The child was actually the result of Oprah being raped by one of her cousins when she was just nine-years-old. And following that disturbing experience, two of her family members had molested her. She found herself pregnant, feeling alone and hurt with a baby on the way at age fourteen.
