The vlogging couple's pregnancy announcement — during which Sam surprised Nia with news that she was pregnant — racked up more than 10 million views in just two days, but following that, the couple remained quiet and failed to post a video the next day. Then on Saturday, the couple posted the video above to announce their devastating news.
"We were just so overjoyed, and then it just — BAM. It just hit us like a bomb," Nia says in the video. "The hardest part is just knowing that it's really gone. There's no question."
The couple said they hoped that, by sharing the news, they could help other people who have suffered miscarriages. "The emptiness and heartache that comes with a miscarriage came as a total shock, and we are coping with this, but wanted to include you," the couple wrote on their YouTube page. "There is a stigma regarding miscarriage that says we need to be alone in it and keep it private, but what happened is nothing less than losing a baby. The hurt and pain is real."
Sam says the couple intends to continue trying to expand their family, but they are relying heavily on their friends and family to get them through their devastation now.
