When season 7 singer, Brooke White, announced her pregnancy last week, she was candid about her fertility problems. Along with a photo of her baby’s sonogram, Brooke posted an Instagram message expressing her gratitude that after months of trying, via in vitro fertilization, she and her husband Dave Ray were expecting a baby boy.
Meet our handsome little dude, due Sept. 2nd! It’s hard to believe it’s even real… Cause, WHEW, It’s been a process. infertility is hard. IVF is downright crazy, I’ve been a hormonal mess for several months, but it’s totally worth it, because it finally worked. Hallelujah! Yes! We are so happy, we are so thankful. Yes, I have a million thoughts and feelings about this journey, cause my heart is humbled and very tender for this struggle and the many women I’ve come to know through it. I wrote them down but Dave said they were a little heavy for an announcement, and he’s probably right. soon I will share. But, I have to say, right now, THANK YOU, for all of your prayers, for your good vibes, for your hope, your perspective, your stories, and your support. You’ve helped me more than you know. I love you, and I just want to do the same for others. 12 weeks down, 28 to go
A few days later, Brooke showed off her baby bump in another Instagram photo, in which she glowed, sporting a comfy-looking shift dress, which she said, “[draped] so nicely over my prominent protruding belly button that could be mistaken for a small island…”
The newest edition to the Ray family will join 3 year old London, born in May 2012. Congrats to Brooke, Dave and soon-to-be-big-sis London!
Happy Friday and ?? out 1st trimester, it’s been fun, haha? 13 weeks today! Thank you Lord! Thank you Dave for doing pretty much everything round here.
