Devin McCourty and his wife Michelle have to cope with an indescribably heavy stroke of fate. The American football star and his sweetheart were still overjoyed until a few days ago: The couple was expecting children for the third time. Should be in just a few weeks Devin and Michelle’s family will be expanded by one member – but her unborn daughter Mia died in the eighth month of pregnancy.
“I cry as I write this,” begins Michelle’s heartbreaking Instagram-Post Office. On May 24, her baby was not found to have a heartbeat. “My pregnancy ended in stillbirth in the eighth month after exactly 31 weeks and two days.” A week earlier, an examination was still all right. Apparently the umbilical cord was wrapped around Mia’s neck. “Our hearts are broken. We are devastated. We are speechless. We are angry. We are confused. We are stunned.”
Despite the death, Michelle had to give birth to her daughter like an ordinary birth. After a 21-hour “emotional torture”, she was able to hug the girl in her arms. “She wasn’t breathing. No screams. No movements,” she recalls.
