‘The Bachelor’ Star Jade Roper Makes Devastating Announcement

Hearts are breaking for former The Bachelor star Jade Roper. On August 13, Roper took to Instagram to share a devastating pregnancy update.

Alongside a photo of herself cradling her baby bump, Roper revealed that she is “currently experiencing what is called a missed miscarriage.” This would have been Jade and her husband Tanner’s fourth child together.

According to Progyny, “a missed miscarriage, also known as a missed abortion or a silent miscarriage, occurs when a fetus is no longer alive, but the body does not recognize the pregnancy loss or expel the pregnancy tissue. As a result, the placenta may continue to release hormones, so you may continue to experience signs of pregnancy.”

“I’ve been struggling what to write here as I’ve been navigating a miscarriage. It felt like all my dreams were coming true to welcome another baby into our lives, to love and to complete our family,” Roper explained to her Instagram followers.

“While our hearts are completely broken and we have been dealing with the deep and complex grief of the loss, we have been blessed to be touched by his soul for his short amount of time. I am forever changed,” she explained, noting that their unborn child would have been a baby boy.

Roper added that “while his heart has stopped and he has stopped growing (for some time now), my body hasn’t released the pregnancy yet. I am hoping to do this naturally and am trusting in timing and in my body under the care of my provider.”

As Roper continued, she also revealed that they had planned to name their son, Beau. “I’ve been carrying him with so much pride and cherish every moment still left with part of him, but it has also been equally as challenging and devastating. So while I hold my belly here, our sweet baby’s body is resting in my womb as his soul soars. We love you with every piece of our hearts, baby Beau.”

While thousands offered Jade and Tanner their condolences, so many fellow moms who have experienced pregnancy loss praised Jade. As one commenter wrote, “ am so sorry, this was the post I needed to see today to feel less alone. I had a miscarriage yesterday and felt my whole world crashing down. You are not alone and so loved.”

Another commenter added, “I can’t believe that you shared. So many women are sitting, in awe @ the courage it took to share this. I have followed you for years. With my first baby on the way and 1 miscarriage behind me, it’s so hard sharing this post.”
