TERRELL, Texas — Just a day after announcing their pregnancy on their YouTube channel, Sam and Nia announced in another video that 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 even knew herself. The video went viral, getting millions of views.

The couple shared 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.

    I know your devestation and will be praying for both you and your husband! I have been in your shoes. The first time I miscarried we had announced to our family and friends that we were expecting. However, my body did not miscarry the baby on it’s own. We had to wait to find out that the baby had died at approximately 9 weeks when I went in for my 12 week checkup to hear the heartbeat and there wasn’t one. I had to had an ultrasound and see the baby with a flatline where there should have been a heartbeat showing. I dreamed about that image for weeks after that. Then I had to have a d d&c because my body was not miscarrying the body as it should have. That was another devestating experience. Thankfully, with my second miscarriage my body did it all on it’s own and we also had decided to wait to tell anyone we were pregnant until the second trimester, just in case. Again, another heartbreak and the whold mourning experience all over again. I told my husband I was done with babies. We had one healthy son and that was enough! Maybe God was trying to tell us to be thankful for the wonderful little boy he had already given us. We didn’t take any precautions ( I was 42) because we had difficulties getting pregnant for the baby i had just miscarried. But, God gave us a little miracle a year later with our daughter Jordyn. She’s a miracle in every way because the doctors told us we probably could not have any more babies, then I was sick the entire pregnancy and had to be hospitalized the last 2 weeks she was in my womb, and she ended up being born 12 weeks early. I wanted to tell you my story – I know it’s a long one – to tell you first of all you are not alone. Second, don’t lose heart. God has a plan. I know that is hard to hear right now just as it was hard for me to hear. My children are 4 1/2 years apart and that was not our plan. However, God knew what he was doing. Shane is the best big brother his little sister could ever wish for. I will be praying for you both as you grieve your loss of this precious little baby and go through one of the worst experiences a couple can go through. It can make you stronger if you let it. And, in time, you will be ready to try again! For me it took about 1 1/2 years because of my job and many other factor of the miscarriage. But, everyone is different. Prayers and blessings to you both and don’t forget, God is not finished with you yet. He has a plan. We just have to be patient enough to see what that plan is.

    My heart hurts for you. I had a miscarriage in my second trimester and I know the pain you are feeling. Luckily two months later I got pregnant again and now have the most wonderful 11 year old boy anybody could ever ask for. I still to this day wonder who that baby would have been but am thankful to have the little boy that God gave me. I wish for your family many prayers and a lot of love and support. Hugs!

    I have been through this. It is not something I would wish on my worst enemy. The only advice I have is to embrace the spirit of that “Angel”. My daughter says that the baby I lost is now her guardian angel and watches over her new sibling too. My thoughts and prayers are with them in this time of saddness.
