TERRELL, Texas – A couple in Texas has suffered a miscarriage shortly after their pregnancy announcement went viral.

Sam and Nia announced in a new video that they’ve suffered a miscarriage just a few days after uploading their pregnancy video to YouTube.

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 more than 10 million views.

The couple shared the new video in hopes that sharing the experience of a miscarriage would help others.

“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 this tragic experience has brought their family closer.
