Nancy Kerrigan goes public with six miscarriages; 'It's devastating ... You think, 'What's wrong wit

Dancing With the Stars fans may have been expecting Nancy Kerrigan to pick 1994 as her "most memorable year" during Monday's emotional show.

After all, that was the year when the figure skater battled back from a knee injury (caused by someone acting on behalf of U.S. rival Tonya Harding) to win silver at the Lillehammer Olympics. But they were off by a year. Kerrigan chose to focus on the aftermath of those Olympics, specifically her struggles to grow a family with her husband and agent Jerry Solomon and the heartache that followed.

In a follow-up interview that aired Wednesday on Good Morning America, the two-time Olympian discussed the impact having six miscarriages in eight years had on her psyche and her relationship.

"It's devastating and it's so hard on your marriage," she told ABC News' Abbie Boudreau. "You think, 'What's wrong with me?'"

She said she blamed herself, reasoning, "People have babies every day. This is such a natural thing.  Why would I keep losing a baby? What did I do (wrong)?

Kerrigan's journey into motherhood started easily enough. She became pregnant quickly after her September 1995 marriage to agent Jerry Solomon and gave birth to son Matthew the following year.
