TERRELL, Texas — Just one day after announcing their pregnancy on their YouTube channel, Sam and Nia announced in another video they have suffered a miscarriage.
In their first video, Sam showed that he snuck his wife’s urine sample from the toilet to surprise her that she was pregnant — before she knew herself. The video went viral, getting millions of views.
The couple put up the new video in hopes that sharing the experience of a miscarriage would help others as well.
“It just, bam, it just hit us like a bomb,” Nia said in the video. “And those of you who have experienced miscarriage before, I can relate now. I have felt my womb empty out. I never ever ever knew that women felt that way.
“I just want to say, too, that maybe there’s someone out there that’s going through this with us. The Bible says to weep with those who weep and mourn with those who mourn, and I am mourning with those of you who are feeling this.”
Sam said he felt that this tragic experience has brought their family closer.
