He went on to explain that they kept the news of their recent pregnancy a secret, but their excitement was cut short by the loss of their baby. He wrote:
"But last weekend, once again, 17 weeks in... the soul we'd been excited to welcome into the world had lessons for our family..."

Last October, James announced that they had been through three miscarriages while adding that they were also expecting another baby.
However, in November, he announced that Brook had lost the baby. Taking to Instagram, John shared a photo of his wife lying in a hospital bed with one of their daughters cuddled up to her mom.
John shared the photo alongside a caption where he stated that the miscarriage had been the scariest for them while adding that it had been a threat to Brook's life.
In appreciation of his wife's strength, John dedicated a sweet Thanksgiving tribute to her where he expressed gratitude for her life.
James and Brook tied the knot in 2010, and the couple share five beautiful children together; Olivia, Joshua Annabel, Emilia, and Gwendolyn.
