We’re heartbroken for actor Kellan Lutz and his wife Brittany.
At 6 months of pregnancy, Kellan *who most of us know as Emmett in the Twilight films) and Brittany have had to say goodbye to their beautiful baby girl. They’ve not given much detail which is to be expected but have shared that Brittany has been incredibly unwell during the process – our hearts go out to them and we are thinking of them and their baby at this awful time.

Baby girl, It was my absolute honor and pleasure to be your mom these last 6 months. I did my best and it was an absolute joy seeing your little face all those times on that screen and feeling your tiny kicks. I don’t know why it happened the way it did, but part of me finds so much peace knowing you never experienced pain or heartache and never will. You’re in the arms of Jesus now and one day we will get to meet you for real. Until I see you in heaven… your mommy loves you so much. 💔 I’m not ready to talk about what happened, and I’m not sure I ever will. But I can say I am SO grateful for the most amazing husband who’s been by my side the entire time. I have the best most supportive family. The prayers from friends have meant everything. My incredible doctor and the amazing team at UCLA Medical Center who kept me alive are the real MVPs. And to all of you who donate blood- I have never been more grateful for you. Without you people like me wouldn’t be here. Thank you for respecting all of our privacy right now. Gonna take some time away to process and heal.
This is such an important topic to start a dialogue about…
We hope that Kellan and Brittany sharing their story helps anyone also going through this to feel less alone in this. If you’re in need of support, you can contact some fantastic organisations for a chat.
