Last week, Married at First Sight‘s Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner happily announced they were expecting their first child.
Jamie shared the news via social media. “Doug and I are so THRILLED,” she said while holding a picture of the sonogram. She even shared baby bump pics with her fans.
Now I look pregnant, now I don't. Amazing how clothes can hide a baby bump…Anything That hides my baby bump I'm throwing away!? I am SO EXCITED to have my itty bitty baby bump! I'm walking around FLAUNTING this baby belly!❤️ Check out my blog (JamieOtis.com) for more pics and video of the first time we heard our baby's heartbeat!?

Sadly, we learned today that the pregnancy has ended in a miscarriage.
“Our Baby Hehner was just too beautiful for earth. I love him so much – ALWAYS will – and can’t wait to meet him in heaven one day,” Jamie expressed on Instagram. “Please pray for us.”
A few hours before making the announcement, Jamie reached out to fans asking for prayers for Baby Hehner— a sure signal something wasn’t quite right.
Please pray for Doug, me, and our baby Hehner. ?❤️

Doug also shared his sentiments about Baby Hehner saying, “Even though you could only leave us with your footprints, you will forever remain in our hearts.”
According to People, the baby, a boy, was due in December. This meant Jamie was four months along when she lost him.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to Doug and Jamie during this difficult time.
