Two weeks after revealing she was hospitalized for pregnancy complications, Christina Perri is has now disclosed that that she and her husband have lost the baby.
On Tuesday, Perri took to social media to make the devastating announcement, writing, "last night we lost our baby girl,” captioning a photo of her holding her daughter’s tiny hand. "She was born silent after fighting so hard to make it to our world. She is at peace now & will live forever in our hearts.”
During her hospitalization earlier this month, Christina updated her fans and followers via Instagram stories, asking them to "please send some love from your heart to the little heart beating in me that we all make it through this,” after her baby began experiencing complications with her intestines. After a few days past, Perri confirmed her newborn would have to undergo surgery following her birth.
"The baby right now is scheduled to have an operation when they arrive," she wrote at the time. "We'll spend some time in the hospital. We're going to prepare for [the NICU], but anything could happen."
"I guess the biggest thing is we hope the baby stays inside and can get as big as possible before this big event they have to go through," Christina continued. "It's just a couple more weeks, so I'm gonna try to take it easy and hope for the best.”
Perri and her husband, Paul Costabile, who together already parent 2-year-old daughter Carmella Stanley, made the announcement they were expecting their second child together this past July. Just six months after revealing the singer suffered a miscarriage at 11 weeks in January.
Christina expressed that her decision to go public with the heartbreaking news was to "help change the story [and] stigma around miscarriage, secrecy and shame," adding, "I am ever reminded how amazing and powerful women are at making life and at healing. To all the mothers who have been here and who will be here, I see you and I love you."
