Jack Osbourne and wife Lisa Stelly are mourning the loss of a baby, as the couple suffered a late miscarriage last week.
In a blog post titled “Unfortunate Announcement,” Lisa Stelly says she’s heartbroken and dreaded explaining that she and Osbourne received terrible news about the baby boy they were expecting.
Stelly wrote in a message on RaddestMom.com that she and Jack learned of the loss last week, but needed to grieve privately.
“I have been dreading this announcement… I needed some time before being able to say it. Jack and I lost our baby boy last week. Having a late term miscarriage is by far the hardest thing either of us have ever had to go through.”
Stelly, who has a 16-month-old daughter, Pearl, with Osbourne, adds:
“We appreciate all of your prayers and ask for privacy and respect during this time. It’s important to stay hopeful and optimistic through life’s toughest moments. We never know why things like this happen. All we can do is trust in God and know he has a plan for our lives.”
The sad update came less than a month after Lisa Stelly and Jack Osbourne announced the pregnancy, well past the first trimester. Stelly wrote on the blog at the time:
“Jack and I are super excited to share with you all that we are expecting our second baby! I am in my second trimester, feeling great & trying not to eat everything in sight.”
“We feel so blessed that our family is growing & Pearl will have a little brother or sister to play with. It’s crazy to think that we will soon be a family of four!”
After Stelly posted about the miscarriage, she tweeted:
Cuddling my amazing, sweet hubby & shutting my eyes. Thank you all for the love & support. It means the world.
