Our hearts are breaking for GloZell Green & her family! The YouTube sensation revealed in a super personal video on Feb. 20 that her Surrogate Shawna Johnson will suffer a miscarriage while carrying GloZell & her hubby’s 2nd child. SO sad. Shawna is currently 7 weeks along, but will have to terminate the pregnancy soon. Watch GloZell’s emotional vid here.
After welcoming her & her husband Kevin Simon‘s, 1st child via surrogate last year, GloZell Green, 44, wanted to give her daughter O’Zell Gloriana De Green Simon a sibling. And just when she thought her dreams of expanding her family were coming true, GloZell’s surrogate Shawna Johnson — who also carried O’Zell — learned she would not be able to carry the baby to term. Revealing the devastating news in a YouTube video on Feb. 20, GloZell was visibly upset, but wanted to let her fans know that she’s not giving up.
“We found out that the baby is not going to make it. Shawna will be having a miscarriage,” GloZell, who has already gone through nine rounds of IVF with Shawna, revealed in her 7-minute long clip. “That’s the crazy part about this now — [we’re] waiting. [We’re] waiting on this to happen.” Providing some background info, GloZell shared that Shawna was having some complications early on — including “low positive” numbers.
“Whatever these numbers are – these blasted numbers – they just never got higher. Shawna was going in every two days and getting blood tested,” the YouTube personality said. “It was a matter of her health because eventually she would have to pass what was growing inside of her and the medication is stopping her from doing that.” But despite the inevitable, GloZell is trying her best to remain positive.
“Shawna sent me a text. She said, ‘Well, I know you said you don’t want to do this again and you won’t do this again, but I’m willing to do it again.’ If she’s willing to do that then so am I,” GloZell bravely shared. And who knows, maybe the tenth time’s the charm! “I do believe that O’Zell needs a sibling. She needs to have someone to play with.” The cutest part of GloZell’s vid though is that throughout the whole thing, she’s holding her precious daughter, providing a symbol of hope! We wish the star and her family all the best.
