Cher found fame in 1965 alongside then-husband Sonny Bono with the duet "I Got You, Babe," reports PEOPLE. They also had a CBS variety show The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour, which ran until 1974. She married Sonny in 1963 and went on to welcome Chaz Bono with Sonny (who died in 1998 at age 62). The couple decided to part ways in 1975. She had her second child Elijah Blue Allman, with her second husband Gregg Allman, who died in 2017 at age 69.

Back in 2010, Cher spoke about her multiple pregnancy losses in an interview with Parade. "I lost four kids before Chaz. It's a spontaneous miscarriage, something that spontaneously aborts the fetus. It's called an angry uterus. It took a long time for someone to tell me that that's what it was. It just starts to contract, for no reason. After the third time, it got to be a nightmare. People would be congratulating me because I was pregnant, and then I wouldn't be, and then they would be like, 'Oh, we're so sorry.' I thought, 'God, I don't want to have to hear this anymore.' "
Cher is using social media to strongly criticize SCOTUS' decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. In one tweet, she wrote, "WOMEN ARE SUFFERING & WILL EITHER BLEED OUT,WHILE DRS LOOK ON,OR BE SENT HOME TILL THEIR COMPLICATIONS ARE BRINGING THEM CLOSE TO⚰️."
"IF SENATE & CONGRESS GO TO REPUBLICANS ... THERE WILL BE NO ABORTIONS, OR PRE NATAL CARE IN [the U.S.]," she said in another tweet. "WOMEN WILL BLEED OUT,& DIE,WHILE SOME GROUPOF OLD WHITE REPUBLICAN 'MEN' DECIDE WHAT MEDICAL TREATMENT U DESERVE."
