Patriots' Devin McCourty and Wife Michelle Mourn Loss of Stillborn Daughter Mia: 'We Are Devastated'

Lily Allen Opens Up About the 'Incredibly Traumatic' Delivery of Her Stillborn Son George

She continued, "To make matters worse, after an emotional full 21 hour labor, I had to push out and deliver our beautiful baby girl who came out with the umbilical cord around her neck. We held our baby, wrapped in a blanket, cute as ever, looking just like our son Brayden when he was born, but she had no breaths. No cries. No movement. Doctors say they have no answers for why this happens. It just sadly does."

Michelle, who also shares 3-year-old daughter Londyn and 2-year-old son Brayden with McCourty, went on to ask her family and friends for support as she continues to grieve.

"We do ask that you please push your prayers our way, especially towards out future, as that will be the hardest challenge moving forward," she wrote. "Pray for our healing."

McCourty shared the same post on his own Instagram page, adding a note about his love for Michelle and her "strength" through this difficult loss.

"Her strength has brought me to tears but also inspired me to be what God has called me to be," the football star wrote. "Thank you everyone for your love and prayers"

McCourty, 32, who has spent his entire 11-year NFL career with the Patriots and has won three Super Bowl titles with the team, received an outpouring of support from his current and former teammates after revealing the news.
