AceShowbiz - Sarah Herron is mourning the loss of her newborn baby. Taking to social media, the "Bachelor in Paradise" alum revealed that her son Oliver Brown passed away after he was born premature.
On Wednesday, February 1, the 36-year-old shared a photo of herself holding the baby on her chest as her fiance, Dylan Brown, planted a sweet kiss in her forehead. She began her caption, "On January 28th, at 24 weeks old, our beautiful son Oliver Brown was born. He passed away in his dad’s arms shortly after."
"There are no words for the magnitude of loss and pain we’re experiencing. It's beautiful and simultaneously tragic. He had my nose and his dad's mouth and long fingers," she added. "Oliver, our IVF miracle defied so many odds and fought through so many hard milestones to be here, but the higher powers still had other plans for the three of us."
"Our time together was short, but we are grateful for the days we had with Oliver in my belly. He has taught us so much about the integrity of life, love and death. Oliver filled our home and hearts with so much love and most importantly, optimism," Sarah continued. "The stars aligned to create Baby Oliver with a deep, meaningful purpose bigger than we’ll ever understand. His body was small, but his legacy will always be larger than life to us."
Sarah concluded her post by writing, "While our hearts are shattered beyond comprehension, we are comforted knowing that our son's soul only ever knew love and will not suffer in a body that wasn't built for this life. We'll never understand the cruelty of it all, but through the darkness, Oliver remains so so bright. We love you so much, baby boy. You will never be replaced. You are so perfect and awesome. Love, Mommy and Daddy."
Sarah, who has been engaged to Dylan since May 2021, announced her pregnancy back in September 2022. She got pregnant after going through several rounds of IVF.
