“This past weekend at my show, I was very transparent with my amazing fans (who I see as family) about the status of my pregnancy. I explained to them, the day after my maternity photo shoot my husband, [Zackariah Darring], and I received the news that our baby tested positive for Trisomy 13, per the doctor. It was a moment that wasn’t planned during my show but at the end of the day I felt in my spirit to share or encourage another women that might have to face this battle.”
According to the Minnesota Department of Health, Trisomy 13 occurs in 1 of 10,000-16,000 births and the incidence increases with increased maternal age and most do not survive past their first year. The risk of recurrence in future pregnancies is 1%.
Hollywood and other entertainment figures have been vocal about the sanctity of human life, often polarizing their fans and endangering their careers.
Movieguide® reported singer Alicia Keys shared how her mother chose not to abort her, and actress Stacey Dash stopped her abortion procedure when God spoke and told her “Keep your son.”
Wyatt concluded by mentioning her faith and how it sustains her in difficult moments such as these:
“No weapon formed against me will prosper anyway. BUT a[n] innocent unborn baby?? Be careful putting your mouth on people. I pray that God gives you grace when Life comes knocking on your front door and you won’t reap what u are sowing. For all of the POSITIVE stories, emails and support I’m getting THANK YOU!”
