After welcoming her precious son, she shared a precious picture of his tiny toes. She captioned the snap, “Baby Richie has arrived!#prayersup for my #babyboy.. He is already a fighter!” Then just a few hours later she shared a second photo, revealing that Richie was no longer with us.
In the second post, she shared a pic of his tiny handprint and captioned it: “Yesterday I was blessed with the birth of my Richie Bear. Unfortunately, last night he took his place with the Lord and we said goodbye. I so appreciate the prayers and support from everyone. He touched my heart and was perfect in so many ways.” The reality star and her husband are also parents to a young girl, Naomi, as well as an eight-year-old boy Daniel, from Danielle’s previous relationship.
Danielle & Her Husband Refused To Terminate Pregnancy
Doctors had previously advised Danielle and Richard to terminate the pregnancy, but they both felt very strongly about a decision to give their son a fighting chance. She previously told Us Weekly, “I said to [Richard], ‘Could you live with this?’ Because I know can. I know I could be in a hospital every day. As a mother, I will do whatever it takes for my child…No matter how long he has in this world, I could not imagine taking his chance away.” So heart wrenching.
Our thoughts are with Danielle, Richard, and their family at this difficult time.
