Christina Milian sister Danielle has lost her newborn baby hours after his birth.
The E! reality star who revealed her baby was diagnosed with omphalocele – a condition that causes abdominal organs to protrude into a baby’s umbilical cord – took to her Instagram to share the sad news.
Danielle and her husband had been warned by Doctors to take the pregnancy out when the condition was first discovered.
But Danielle chose to leave the baby and hoped he would be able to survive it.
After he was born, she shared on social media that he was a fighter and she was hopeful for him.
The baby passed on hours after.
Christina Milian took to her Instagram page to share the only picture of the baby taken
The last 24 hours have been an emotional roller coaster but i'd like to thank everyone for being so supportive throughout my sister Danielle & Richards pregnancy. The both of them have shown the true measure of courage and faith for the last 9 months and I can't praise them more. Our family was blessed to have met our little Angel Baby Richie. We were fighting for him and with him the whole way and are now coping with the direction in which fate took. I ask that you keep him and our entire family in your prayers– Especially Danielle, Richard, Naomi & Dj and know that we've all been touched by our little Guardian Angel. His memory will forever live on in our thoughts and our hearts. May he now rest in peace in the arms of our Heavenly Father . ? stay blessed.
We pray for the soul of the little one.
