Indianapolis Colts player Ryan KellyYour wife Emma KellyTheir daughter is being remembered Mary Katherine.
On Dec. 19, Emma took to Instagram to share the heartbreaking loss of their baby girl, 19 weeks into her pregnancy. “There is no easy way for us to say what we’re about to say… but we lost our sweet baby, Mary Katherine Kelly, aka Mary Kate, this week,” she wrote in part. I was 19 weeks pregnant, one week away from my halfway point. The chance that a woman will lose their child this early in life is 1%. Yet, we’re here.
Emma, who announced her pregnancy on Halloween, then thanked one of her “angel” nurses for her support.
She continued, “The pain is too much for Ryan and I. We don’t know where we should start.” After rushing to the hospital after discovering some bleeding, I learned that her heart had stopped. When I learned she was not with me anymore, it was clear that we had to have our next baby. Ryan and Ryan spent 48 hours at the hospital. Before she arrived on December 17, 2017, I spent 24 hours laboring with her.
