She gave birth to Mary on December 17 after 24 hours in labor.

“Nothing made me happier than being your Dad. You gave your Mom and I that gift,” Ryan wrote in a post on Instagram. “You were simply a miracle and always will be. I’m sorry you never got to open those sweet eyes and see us or take your first steps but you have angel wings now.”

“You left this world too soon but we know God had a bigger purpose for you. Your mom and I find comfort knowing you’re being loved on by your great grandparents,” he continued. “Thank you for watching over us and your future siblings. I’ll forever wonder who you’d be today. Until we meet again my sweet girl, I love you ­čŽő”

Emma said in her own respective Instagram post that sharing the news to social media was a way for the couple to begin healing.

“One of our Angel nurses, Kalyn, told us this would be the hardest thing we’ll ever do in our life, and I pray to God she’s right. Because this feels worse than hard, it feels so evil and cruel,” she wrote. “The pain and brokenness is so unbearable for Ryan and i [sic] we don’t even know where to begin.”

She also thanked “family, friends, community north staff, & the entire Colts community­čĺÖ” for “lifting us through this.”

Our thoughts are with Ryan and Emma at this difficult time.

We have sadly lost all of these stars in 2021.
