“We lost the baby,” the father-of-five said. “The little soul that we had expected to welcome in to the family took a shortcut to whatever lies beyond. You never know why these things happen, that’s what I’ve been telling my kids. All you know it brings you closer together. It breaks you open, it opens up your heart… it makes you more human.”
James said he “really didn’t think I’d be dancing tonight, but Kimberly from our hospital bed said to me, ‘I’m not done watching you dance.’” James then sweetly addressed his wife. “Kimberly, I love you,” he said. “We are dancing to ‘Take Me to Church,’ which is all about human convention that’s so strong, it’s out of control, it’s scary, it rocks your soul.”

He followed up with an Instagram post revealing his family was, “Wrecked. Devastated. In shock."
That’s how we’re feeling right now after the soul we thought were going to welcome into our family in April... has taken a short cut to whatever lies beyond this life,” he wrote alongside photos of Kimberly lying in what appears to be a hospital bed with their daughter. “We’ve been through this before, but never this late in the pregnancy, and never accompanied by such a scary, horrific threat to @vanderkimberly and her well-being.”
Kimberly posted on her Instagram Story to thank people for "all the love."
"In 48 hours, we lost our baby boy and I almost lost my life, which is not a story that has been told," she said, adding that she would talk more about the experience in the future.
