New England Patriots Player Devin McCourty & Wife Lose Baby Mia at 8 Months
New England Patriots player Devin McCourty and his wife Michelle lost their child, Mia, over Memorial Day Weekend.
“I cry as I type this. It pains me to announce that this past memorial wknd [sic] on May 24, 2020, Dev and I suffered the most painful experience of our lives. My pregnancy had resulted in a still birth at almost 8 months of being pregnant — at exactly 31 weeks 2 days when we found out that the baby girl growing inside me no longer had a heart beat after being completely fine the week before at my last doctor’s appt [sic],” Michelle posted on her Instagram. “We are so heartbroken. We are devastated. We are speechless. We are angry. We are sad. We are confused. We are numb.”
“To make matters worse, after an emotional full 21 hour labor, I had to push out and deliver our beautiful baby girl who came out with the umbilical cord around her neck. We held our baby, wrapped in a blanket, cute as ever, looking just like our son Brayden when he was born, but she had no breaths. No cries. No movement. Doctors say they have no answers for why this happens. It just sadly does,” she continued.
Our thoughts are with the McCourty family during this time. RIP baby Mia.
