In a video released on TLCme, Josiah and Lauren opened up about their loss. “A couple months ago, we found out that we were expecting, but suddenly thereafter, we lost our baby,” Lauren, 19, said.
Josiah, 22, admitted, “It really was a hard time for our family going through this right after we got married.” He and Lauren wed on June 30, 2018, just four months earlier.
“All the dreams of getting to see our little one and hold it in our hands dashed before our eyes,” he continued.
“We know a lot of people go through miscarriage but nobody really talks about it, and so we just wanted to let y’all know that you’re not alone,” Lauren added.
The couple ended the video by thanking fans for their “prayers and support.”
The video also included a clip from the upcoming season of Counting On, which premieres today on TLC. In the emotional clip, Lauren cries as she says, “I couldn’t believe it and I was hoping it wasn’t true. It was the worst day of my life, really.”
