Christina Perri has shared the heartbreaking news that she has suffered a pregnancy loss, just days after she was hospitalised and told fans she would have to deliver early.
The 34-year-old singer shared a photo of her holding her tiny baby’s hand as she and husband Paul Costabile told her followers that their daughter have been “born silent.”
The Thousand Years singer wrote in the emotional post on Instagram : “last night we lost our baby girl. she was born silent after fighting so hard to make it to our world.
“She is at peace now and will live forever in our hearts.”
Christina had previously suffered a miscarriage, and her husband also shared the same photo, along with the caption: “It’s been a rough couple weeks and we’re so grateful for the outpouring of love and prayers from you all.”
The singer had been suffering complications during this pregnancy and had been keeping her fans up to date with candid posts as she entered her third trimester.
Last week, she has been hospitalised and had shared that she was expecting to deliver the baby early.
On Tuesday last week, Christina wrote on her Instagram Story: “Hey friends. Well, nothing ever goes as we plan.
“Baby is having an issue, so I’m gonna be here till it’s time for baby to come out. Which might have to be very soon. Which is very early.
“Please send some love from your heart to the little heart beating in me that we all make it through this.
“I’m grateful for doctors and nurses and will do whatever they suggest we do.”
On Friday, the situation had worsened and Christina revealed that her baby would need emergency surgery after the birth as she had a birth defect known as jejunal atresia.
She wrote: “We met with the surgeon and she’s amazing. Baby has jejunal atresia but we won’t know how severe til [sic] surgery.”
Jejunal atresia is when the intestine fails to develop properly and the membrane connecting the small intestines to the abdominal wall is not completely developed or is completely absent.
The intestine then twists an artery that supplies blood to the colon creating a blockage.
The singer thanked fans at the time for their support, writing on her Instagram Story: “Hi friends. Thank you for another day of thousands of messages, stories, prayers, texts, flowers, support and love.
“Me and baby are ok.”
The next post from the singer was to confirm the tragic passing of her daughter.
