‘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,’ the Nothing in This World artist said. ‘I explained to them, the day after my maternity photo shoot my husband & I received the news that our baby tested positive for Trisomy 13 per the doctor.’
