Danielle Milian’s baby boy Richie Bear died Tuesday suffering from omphalocele – a rare birth defect that causes internal organs to grow outside the body. Danielle appears with her sister in the reality series Christina Milian Turned Up.
Christina posted a photo of the baby’s tiny foot on Instagram with a long, emotional comment. She wrote, “Our family was blessed to have met our little Angel Baby Richie. We were fighting for him and with him the whole way and are now coping with the direction in which fate took.” She added, “We’ve all been touched by our little Guardian Angel. His memory will forever live on in our thoughts and our hearts. May he now rest in peace in the arms of our Heavenly Father.”
The singer/actress also told the New York Post, “This is a tremendous loss for our family. My sister and brother in law are so strong and we will all get through this together. We appreciate everyone’s prayers during this difficult time.”
