Ruthie Ann Miles was 7 months pregnant with her second child when her daughter was killed in an accident. Two months later, she also lost her unborn daughter.


The 35-year-old Broadway star, who is married to Jonathan Blumenstein, was injured and her 4-year-old daughter Abigail Blumenstein was killed in a tragic car crash on March 5, 2018.

The accident took place while the two were crossing a street in Brooklyn, New York. They and other pedestrians were hit by a car driving through a red light.

Abigail was declared dead upon arrival at Methodist Hospital.

Still coping with the loss of her little girl, Miles' unborn child, Sophia Rosemary Wong Blumenstein, died on May 11, 2018. The baby girl was due this month.


A friend close to Miles told People: “Ruthie is simply not doing well. The only consolation she had in Abigail’s death was the fact that her unborn baby had survived. But now losing that baby? She’s crushed to her core."

“She loved being a mom. She couldn’t wait to expand her family. Losing those kids, it’s destroyed her. How can she even survive this? It’s taking every bit of her faith to find a way through,” the friend added.

Sophia Rosemary Wong's death was announced by Miles’ family lawyer, Ben Rubinowitz.

“Ruthie and Jonathan started telling their close friends last week about the loss. They wanted them to hear about it first but kept the circle small as they’re not yet comfortable talking about it and still want privacy," the friend continued. "To say that Ruthie is devastated would be an understatement."


In March 2018, Miles was one of three non-fatal victims of the New York City accident.

The police also confirmed that her daughter Abigail was one of two children hit and killed by a car that was allegedly running a red light.

Before the tragic accident claimed the 4-year-old's life, a source previously told People that she “was excited to be a big sister.”

“She was the brightest little spirit,” the source said. “Every time you were around her, your heart couldn’t help but shine. She had the sweetest laugh and the loveliest personality. She was very much like her mother.”
