Singer Christina Milian's Sister Danielle Is Mourning The Death Of Her Baby Boy, Just Hours After His Birth.
The celebrity hair and make-up stylist, who stars on the U.S. family docu-series Christina Milian Turned Up with her sister, revealed she and husband Richard DICkerson's unborn son was suffering from a condition that causes organs to grow outside the body earlier this summer (15), adding that doctors advised them to terminate the pregnancy.
But the couple made the difficult decision to see the pregnancy through, and on Tuesday (25Aug15), Milian announced the arrival of son Richie, and took to Instagram.com to share a photo of his tiny foot hooked up to an IV.
She wrote, "Baby Richie has arrived! #prayersup for my #babyboy... He is already a fighter!"
However, Milian returned to Instagram on Wednesday (26Aug15) to share the sad news that Richie had passed away hours after his birth.
Posting a photo of her chest and what appears to be an baby's inked handprint, she added the caption, "Yesterday I was blessed with the birth of my Richie Bear. Unfortunately, last night he took his place with the Lord and we said goodbye. I so appreciate the prayers and support from everyone. He touched my heart and was perfect in so many ways."
Danielle has a young daughter named Naomi with DICkerson, and she's also mum to a son named Daniel from a previous relationship.
