Christina Perri announced she lost her child, a baby girl who was “born silent after fighting so hard to make it to our world.”
“She is at peace now & will live forever in our hearts,” the singer and songwriter wrote on Twitter, posting a picture of the baby’s hand. Perri was in her third trimester.
Perri shared her tragic news just hours before Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, revealed she’d suffered pregnancy loss in July with a miscarriage, which occurs in 10% to 25% of known pregnancies.
Perri’s heartbreaking post on Tuesday came just days after the 34-year-old singer wrote that the baby was being closely monitored and would likely have some “challenging issues when they arrive but hopefully I can stay pregnant a bit longer.”
The singer in January announced the miscarriage of an 11-week-old baby, saying her family was “shocked & completely heartbroken.” Perri and her husband, Paul Costabile, also have a 2-year-old daughter, Carmella.
