YouTube duo Sam and Nia became instant Internet sensations when they posted an extra special pregnancy announcement that had an unexpected twist. Their video flipped the script on traditional announcements, where the woman tells the man he’s going to be a dad. Instead, Sam was the one who first told Nia she was pregnant.
Sharing their extreme joy on YouTube, the video went viral. Since posting, their video has received over 11-million views.
Sadly, a short three days later, they posted a second video. This time in tears of sadness, not joy.
Their 4-minute video titled Our Baby Had a Heartbeat featured the couple sitting on their bed in tears as they sadly revealed the news of their sudden miscarriage.
Nia said, “I…felt my womb empty out. I never, ever, ever, knew women felt that way.”
As they spoke throughout their video in tears, they reached out to others who were going through miscarriages and reminded them that she will do as the Bible says and “weep with those who weep and mourn with those who mourn.”
Despite the devastation, the couple expressed their thankfulness to God and hoped that their previous video would be used to shine light to the world.
