Kellan Lutz’s Wife On Losing Her Child
Wife of Kellan Lutz, Brittany recently talked regarding losing their daughter, six months into her pregnancy.

First of all, THANK YOU to all of you. Your love, support, encouragement, kindness… it’s been overwhelming in the best way. It also shocking how many of you have been through the same thing. You are all superwomen. To those who have been vulnerable and shared your own experiences with us, we appreciate you letting us into painful chapters of your lives for the sake of showing us we aren’t alone. 🧡 This has, without a doubt, been the hardest season of my life. It feels as though within one day we went from a season that felt like a warm summer day, to the most frigid, windiest, iciest, day ever recorded. (Anyone ever seen The Revenant with Leo? I feel like Leo in The Revenant right now!) My emotions and feelings are slightly all over the place which is to be expected. Some moments I feel so full of peace and hope and expectancy. And other moments, simply put, it all just hurts like hell. I think it is important to try to always operate from a place of positivity, but that doesn’t mean you don’t acknowledge the other side too. We are human after all. We all hurt, bleed, cry. Feeling the negative emotions doesn’t make you negative. The pain: – I miss her. A lot. – My milk came in last night. My boobs are rocks, leaking, and hurt like heck. It feels like a cruel reminder that I have no baby to feed. – My arms and neck are covered in bruises from IVs and blood transfusions and my body is so sore from fighting to survive. The positive: – I’m still here!!!! I’m writing this right now and feel humbled. – I have the greatest husband and family and friends (and all of you who I’ve never even met!) who have poured so much back to me that I feel full. – Even though this is so heavy, I have an unexplainable hope and excitement for the future. I’m not ready for another pregnancy right now, (not sure when I will be honestly), but I’m excited to heal and move forward and explore this new version of myself. This situation didn’t make me the person I thought I would become (specifically a mother to a real life baby girl), but it did birth a new version of me. Truthfully I’m scared and nervous but at the same time really eager to get to know her.
Brittany also described that she suffered physical and emotional pain. She was producing milk even after all these tragic events and have bruised on her body from needles, which she experienced while struggling for both her and her infant’s lives.
She admired Kellan for being the best husband, along with relatives and colleagues who have also supported her through the tragic time.
She said, “Even though this is so sad, I have an unexplainable hope and enthusiasm for the future.
“I’m not preparing for another pregnancy right now, not sure when I will be honest, but I’m eager to heal and move forward and explore this new version of myself. This condition didn’t make me the person I believed I would become specifically a mom to a real-life infant girl, but it did birth a new version of me. Truthfully I’m afraid and nervous but at the same moment delighted to get to know her.”
The couple declared the pregnancy in November, and in January, Brittany uploaded a cute post sharing her excitement regarding flying off to Los Angeles for a doctor’s appointment ahead of her baby girl’s coming.
After that, on Thursday, she shared this disastrous news that she had lost the infant.
