New England Patriots safety Devin McCourty and his wife Michelle shared personal news on Saturday that their daughter Mia had passed away as the result of a stillbirth.
Devin wrote the following message over Instagram;
“I’ve seen and felt God in so many ways in this last week. 1st was holding my 3rd child Mia and telling her I love her and then telling her see you later…all in one day. 2nd has been leading such a strong and powerful woman @dr_yimac32…her strength has brought me to tears but also inspired me to be what God has called me to be. 3rd Gods love on earth has been shown to us by unbelievers friends and family who have checked on us daily, and hourly.
Thank you everyone for your love and prayers -Dmac”
Devin’s wife, Dr. Michelle McCourty also shared her thoughts in an Instagram post.
“I cry as I type this,” Michelle wrote. “My pregnancy had resulted in a stillbirth at almost 8 months of being pregnant — at exactly 31 weeks 2 days, when we found out that the baby girl growing inside me no longer had a heartbeat after being completely fine the week prior at my last doctor’s appointment.”
“We are so heartbroken. We are devastated. We are speechless. We are angry. We are sad. We are confused. We are numb.”
Devin tweeted out Michelle’s full posting Saturday afternoon.
