Otis shared her husband’s post Thursday morning and wrote a message to her unborn child. “Baby Hehner, daddy made this picture collage for you,” she wrote on Instagram. “It’s only been one day since we lost you, but our love for you has grown more than you’ll know. You’re our little Angel up in Heaven. We cannot wait to meet you and hold you again one day. We love you and miss you.”
Jamie, who recently published her memoir, “Wifey 101: Everything I Got Wrong After Finding Mr. Right,” revealed her miscarriage several hours after asking fans for prayers for her family. “Our Baby Hehner was just too beautiful for earth. I love him so much - ALWAYS will - and can't wait to meet him in heaven one day. Please pray for us,” she said.
