TERRELL, Texas — Just a day after announcing their pregnancy on their YouTube channel, Sam and Nia announced in another video that they have suffered a miscarriage.

In their first video, Sam showed that he snuck his wife’s urine sample from the toilet to surprise her that she was pregnant, before she even knew herself. The video went viral, getting millions of views.

The couple shared the new video in hopes that sharing the experience of a miscarriage would help others as well.

“It just, bam, it just hit us like a bomb,” Nia said in the video. “And those of you who have experienced miscarriage before, I can relate now. I have felt my womb empty out. I never ever ever knew that women felt that way.

“I just want to say, too, that maybe there’s someone out there that’s going through this with us. The Bible says to weep with those who weep and mourn with those who mourn, and I am mourning with those of you who are feeling this.”

Sam said he felt that this tragic experience has brought their family closer.

    And that’s why you don’t announce a pregnancy until you’re well into the last months when you know you’ll be able to go full term.

      I don’t agree about not announcing a pregnancy until knowing it is going to be “successful”. Why is it such a secret to have a miscarriage? Women are told to stay quiet at too many tragic moments in their lives. They should have the opportunity to receive support from ALL those who love them and to lean on others who have experienced the same tragedy. You never know who will touch your life and lift you up. Shout it out if you have to!

        Yes, lean on the people who love you. But don’t turn your private pain into a YouTube show. You’re not helping people. You’re just contributing to a culture of voyeurism.

        The fact that you did not wait to announce it has no effect on the suffering you feel when this happens. Nothing to do with it. What does you’re sentence even mean? That because they announced it early this happened?, or that if they had not announced it they would not be this devastated? No….it would have been as horrible.

      I was five months pregnant with my first child when I lost her. My cousin had a stillborn, full-term baby the next month. We had both waited to tell our families after the 12 week mark, but it didn’t matter. I’m so sorry for their loss.

    Debbie Downer the name fits you oh so well. More like Negative Nancy. Im going to take it back to the elementary days, ” If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Your just a rude person. Not everyone is vindictive and out to get money some people feel as though it is their duty to help others whether it is through inviting people into heir lives by making videos or what have you. I commend them for being so brave. If you watched the video, he had scrubs on so he more than likely has a decent job not to mention they don’t seem like people out to be schemey.

    You just found out you had a miscarriage and the first thing you do is tell the world. At least take some time and mourn in your private time. Its so sad that every little thing that happens to a person right away everyone has to know about it….im not saying its for attention but that’s what it looks like.

    I was rejoicing with you yesterday, and I am grieving with you today. You have now experienced a glimpse of what God the Father felt and what Our Lady felt as Jesus gave His life for us. God bless you and your precious, precious family. You remain in my prayers.
