“We were going to have a baby, but we had an angel instead,” YouTube star Channon Rose captioned a picture of two people giving their baby to an angel on Instagram yesterday. The heartbreaking news of the 31-year-old’s miscarriage came just a few days after she and her husband, Travis Dean, announced that they were finally pregnant after years of infertility. The YouTuber continued, “It is with broken hearts that we announce we are no longer pregnant. […] Thank you for your continued love & support during this difficult time.”
The 39-year-old uploaded the same illustration and said, “I’m not sure how to explain or express my feelings from this past week. The week started out with announcing our pregnancy, followed now by losing our pregnancy. We were so happy that we were able to get pregnant which gives us hope. We are also incredibly grateful for all of the support from so many of you, our friends, and our family.”
Channon uploaded a video in which she explained that she was on edge since she found out she was expecting a baby, because she had cramping from very early on. Everyone assured her that that was normal, but when she started bleeding heavily one day, she knew something was wrong. Unfortunately, doctors saw her hormone levels weren’t increasing as expected with a healthy pregnancy, so they explained that she would most likely miscarry.
The married pair is obviously heartbroken, but, as usual, they are doing their best to remain positive.
“For over two years, we never got a positive pregnancy test; that was so huge for us,” the blonde said.
Travis continued, “It was a huge move forward for us.”
The YouTubers still have one frozen embryo, and they have no plans to give up on starting a family.
“One of these days we’ll be able to have a baby,” Channon said, and we couldn’t agree more.
Our thoughts are with the Deans at this devastating time.
Unfortunately, these celebrities know what it’s like to go through a miscarriage:

She also sings about the tragedy in her song "Heaven," which she describes as the "saddest song [she's] ever written."
