Courtney Stodden has suffered a miscarriage three months into her pregnancy.
On Sunday, a rep for Stodden informed Entertainment Tonight that the Stodden has suffered a miscarriage last week. Not long after the confirmation, Courtney took to Twitter to say goodbye to the child she and her husband, Doug Hutchison, had lost.
I love you my sweet angel— Courtney Stodden (@CourtneyStodden) July 17, 2016
God is embracing you ❤️— Courtney Stodden (@CourtneyStodden) July 17, 2016
Stodden also took to Instagram to share an image bearing a quote that may inspire those who have suffered miscarriages.
“Babies lost in the womb were never touched by fear, they were never cold, never hungry, never alone & importantly always knew love,” the quote read.
Stodden’s rep confirmed to ET the news that the reality star has suffered a miscarriage with a statement.
“Courtney and her husband, Doug [Hutchison], are at an emotional loss for words and are using this time to grieve with their close family and friends. Please respect their privacy as the couple try to cope with losing their precious baby and seek the support they both need.”
In May, Courtney Stodden and husband Doug Hutchison announced that they were going to have a baby. Stodden and Hutchison got married in 2011. They split in 2013 but reunited less than a year later. Courtney recently opened up about renewing their vows right on their fifth wedding anniversary on June 21.
“Our relationship right now is really, really good. We’re really strong and we’re very happy. We’re getting ready to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary and we’re absolutely going to renew our vows for our fifth wedding anniversary. So, yeah, we’re doing really, really well!,” Courtney said.
Courtney Stodden has always been liberal in providing her followers pregnancy updates since her May announcement.
On Father’s Day, Courtney posted an Instagram photo of her husband Doug on his knees in front of her, gently caressing and admiring her baby bump.
Courtney has been vocal in showing her appreciation for the constant care and support she had been receiving from her husband during her pregnancy.
“Doug has been fabulous. He’s been taking care of me so well. He gets sympathy morning sickness. It’s funny,” Courtney said.
“He’s such a great husband, and he’s like, ‘I think you are sexier now’. I’m like, ‘I don’t know how to take that. Do you want me to be all lumpy?'” she added.
Just 6 days before she had her miscarriage, Stodden shared an Instagram photo of herself clutching at her baby bump and pretending to be asleep to demonstrate how her pregnancy had changed her sleeping habits of late.
“Sleeping soooooooooo much it’s insane!!! #preggers,” she captioned the photo.
Courtney Stodden looked stunning as a pregnant woman, but beneath that beautiful facade is a woman suffering from depression. In an interview with Us Weekly, the then-expectant reality star admitted that her depression has worsened since her pregnancy began.
“My depression affects my appetite, sleeping patterns and overall perspective on life,” Stodden said. “At times, I have severe insomnia and other times I find myself sleeping too much. I have feelings of hopelessness but experience many moments of absolute euphoria.”
Despite her struggles with depression, Courtney said that she wants to be the best mother she could be. Sadly, that desire proved to be a big burden to her as well.
“I already love this baby so much,” says Stodden. “I just fear the thought of motherhood. It’s such an overwhelming responsibility and I want to be the very best mommy that I can possibly be.”
Stodden reportedly took Xanax to manage her anxieties about being a mother, and had found comfort in writing a self-help book called Blonde & Blue.
“I’m working on a self-help book called Blonde & Blue,” she revealed. “It’s an explicit in-depth account of my saddest, darkest moments as well as my highs … My hope is by being painfully honest, my story can inspire others.”
