HOW IT HAPPENED

Harris' baby girl, who she had named Lelah Amore, would have been a teenager by now. Sadly, she lost her life when her mother was six months pregnant.

In an interview with Essence, Harris once opened up about how the miscarriage caused her immense pain and the impact it had on her relationship with T.I.

Speaking to the outlet, Harris shared that her doctor had told her that the sac that holds the baby had split in two from the time she was pregnant.

A PAIN THEY WILL NEVER FORGET

Although Harris was hopeful that everything would be okay, the sac had not combined even when the baby was 16 weeks old. Even then she had not lost all hope.

The day before she visited a specialist, she was told that the baby was doing good and there was nothing to worry about. Sadly, that was not the case.

The specialist could not detect a heartbeat. Harris would never get to hold her or see her grow up. She was devastated beyond measure. She told Essence:

"They came and got her because her body went cold and I wanted her back so they warmed her body again and I kept her."
