TERRELL, Texas — Just a day after announcing their pregnancy on their YouTube channel, Sam and Nia announced in another video that they have suffered a miscarriage.

In their first video, Sam showed that he snuck his wife’s urine sample from the toilet to surprise her that she was pregnant, before she even knew herself. The video went viral, getting millions of views.

The couple shared the new video in hopes that sharing the experience of a miscarriage would help others as well.

“It just, bam, it just hit us like a bomb,” Nia said in the video. “And those of you who have experienced miscarriage before, I can relate now. I have felt my womb empty out. I never ever ever knew that women felt that way.

“I just want to say, too, that maybe there’s someone out there that’s going through this with us. The Bible says to weep with those who weep and mourn with those who mourn, and I am mourning with those of you who are feeling this.”

Sam said he felt that this tragic experience has brought their family closer.

    I am sorry for your loss. I know all to well what you are going through. My first son was born still at 40 weeks then I had several miscarriages. I pray that God gives you strength and guidance through this dark time.

    So sorry for your loss. I know what you are going through – I lost 4. If you hadn’t already named her, you might think about letting your little one choose her name. We didn’t name 3 of the babies we lost – and years later, when I was doing some grief counseling research I found that we should. So we allowed each of our daughters to name the sister closest to them. It allowed them to be more a part of their short lives. It won’t always hurt this bad…

    May God wrap his arms around you both and bestow extra love and blessings upon you and your family.
    When I miscarried, the way I was able to get through it was to keep the thought in my mind “that the baby I was carrying and falling into love with, was too perfect for this wicked earth…. God had better plans for your perfect angel and now your angel is watching over you both”.

    I know it may be hard to take this in as I send hugs and prayers to you this day, but your baby will be awaiting with open arms to hold and love you both again.

    “I have felt my womb empty out. I never ever ever knew that women felt that way.”

    THIS. You feel it, see it, and know there is literally nothing you can do to stop it. So sorry for you guys.

    I can not bring myself to watch this video. I have had three miscarriages and feel your pain. Even though I don’t feel capable of watching this video I am so glad to see that you are sharing this for those who will be able to heal along with you. Although, the pain of loosing a child never seems to go away the pain does get easier to bear.

    Dear ones, you are not alone. Our Father collects your tears and not a one is wasted. Your darling is safe and held now and you WILL see them again. Take comfort from the Lover of Your Soul. I am so saddened and sorry for your deep grief.

    My husband and I had a miscarriage Easter morning earlier this year. I was 11 weeks pregnant and just about to announce our pregnancy. I thought I’d share a few thoughts from my experience.
    It has been one of the worst and good things in my life. Nothing compares to the emptiness or sense of loss you have no matter how far along you are. However, I’ve learned more about myself and my husband in the following months than I could’ve ever imagined. My husband and I are closer than ever before, and I feel closer to God as well. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, you are not alone. Lean on each other, your family and friends, they want to help.
    Nothing eases the pain and loss except time. Be patient with yourself, and let yourself grieve. Soon, you’ll realize that next time will be better.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Though I don’t know you, I know you’ll have the strength to get through this.

    I am very sorry for your loss. Be strong. Go on. I managed to have two precious babies after four miscarriages.

    I am sorry for your loss. I have had a miscarriage and let me tell you ahead of time, it is a loss you will never get over even though you never saw or held your infant. I suspected something was wrong when I had two monthly appointments and they could not detect a heart beat. They tried to tell me the baby was just hiding (they didn’t do ultrasound when I was pregnant). Well at the beginning of my 4th month I work up in the morning and was hemorrhaging. I went to the Dr. and they informed me I was having a miscarriage and had to have a D&C performed immediately. I was completely devastated! After the procedure I asked the Dr. it was a boy or girl he told me he couldn’t tell because the fetus had grown no bigger than the nail on his pinky. It was from that moment on I vowed if I was to become pregnant again I was going to wait until I heard the baby’s heartbeat and was in my 4th month.

    Right now you are aching so much ~ don’t try to push away the feeling. Go with it as crying all you want will help with the healing process. Acknowledge the grief because as I said earlier, even though you did not see your baby or get the chance to hold it, it is still a loss. I wish you the best and if you want to try again, wait 3 months and then you will conceive again (that is what my dr. said and it worked). I wish you and your husband the best. RIP to the little soul who never got to see mommy and daddy.

    My heart goes out to you. It is such a heart jerking experience. I went through several, and each time noone understood how devastating it was. How the mom feels empty, the ‘what did I do wrong’ questions race through your mind and the sadness envelopes your heart.
    But it will pass and the Lord has a special little one lined up that will be hours. ‘Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning’ . stand with each other, papa, just love her through her weeping moments, and pray together.
    May the Lord strengthen you both

    There is something fishy about this whole story. Was she even pregnant? Why cry about how much you hate your job while wearing your uniform? And I can’t help but notice the crocodile tears. Attention seekers I think so

  • detra

    I’m sorry. You’re an amazing couple. I pray you feel peace and comfort and that with time your family will be blessed with a baby. I lost a baby over 20 years ago and my heart still aches. It made me even more grateful for the two children I did have.

  • Marilyn

    So sorry for your loss, I know how you are feeling at this moment I have had 4 miscarriages and it is devastating each and every time. God will bless you keep faith. I was able to have a son after the 2nd miscarriage he is now 21 yrs old and after another 2 miscarriages I was able to have a daughter who is now 15. One thing i never questioned was my faith in God, so keep your faith and I will be praying for you.

    I feel for you,
    with my last pregnancy/miscarriage we waited until the 12 week mark to tell.
    I thought I was far enough along by then…
    I miscarried the next week.
    So sorry for your loss.

  • Wendy Dexter

    Sorry is so inadequate but I am deeply sorry for you both and all other couples who are dealing with this heart-wrenching loss.

    This is why many people have the custom of not announcing a pregnancy until after the 3rd month. Something like 50% of pregnancies are spontaneously aborted by the body within the first 60 days. Look it up.

    Hello sweet couple. I cryed watching your video. I have lost 5 babies and my heart grieves with you. I am so sorry. Please know that God is with you in the midst of the deep sorrow. He spoke to me and taught me something with each loss of a child. It was hard and I felt so alone. But at the same time, I KNEW HE was with me and holding me in his arms the whole time. Take comfort in the arms of Jesus. It’s the best place to be. HE will get you through this. I also named each of my babies. I made a picture with the name, date, and little footprints, as well, to remember them and to help me grieve. I would encourage you to do something that’s meaningful to you to remember your little one..a charm necklace, a picture, a planted tree…something. :) This is such an encouraging verse. I hope you are encouraged as well. Psalm 34:18 “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”

    The hotels in the Caribbean are often beautiful pieces of architecture.
    For instance, if you want to enjoy a number of spa treatments for total relaxation from
    all that hard work, most of the Jamaican resorts will offer
    this service. You can have all the fun you associate with the beach and then spend the
    evening gaming at one of the nearby casinos.
