The 36-year-old shared the sad news via Instagram on Tuesday, June 8, on what would have been her due date. The pair suffered two miscarriages after welcoming their daughter, Charlie, now 5.
"The one thing that was certain was how Dave and I both felt when I found out I was pregnant," she captioned a black-and-white photoset from December where she showed off her baby bump. "We were elated."
The Supergirl star continued, "after our personal journey as a couple, we finally felt like we were in the right place and our gift was this baby in my belly. I was 15 weeks pregnant when this photo was taken back in December and today would have been your due date."
"There was another plan and our baby is no longer with us. I share this because what you see on a social media page isn’t always what’s going on in real life. My social media page consists mostly of a highlight reel. I try to keep it as authentic as I can, but I also largely focus on the positive because that feels good to me. But this is real and this is part of life."
"The really hard stuff that you never think or want to come your way. I miss feeling this sweet baby grow but I also know that it was a gift carrying our baby and a privilege for even the short time we spent together," the House alum continued. "It never felt right to not share or celebrate this moment in our life, I just needed the space to do it."
Annable explained that there is always a silver lining during the hard times — and she's found it in her husband and daughter. "This experience has given me a new appreciation for my husband who was a rock for me and was unwavering with his support even though I know he was feeling it all as well," she wrote. "It made me marvel at what a miracle Charlie is."
"What a miracle and a blessing it is to have a healthy child. I am so grateful for my family. We love you always and forever little angel 👼🏼," she added.
"I am so grateful and proud to be your husband. Always," Dave commented.
Fans and friends rushed to the comments to offer support.
"So special that you shared this ❤️," Haylie Duff wrote.
"You[r] vulnerability and raw honesty is exquisite. Love you always sweet friend ❤️," Rumer Willis commented.
"I love you so much ❤️," Minka Kelly said.
Odette and Dave tied the knot in 2010 before briefly separating in 2019. The couple got back together less than a year later.
