Emma Kelly, the wife of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, is mourning the loss of their daughter. Emma Kelly stated that she was 19 weeks pregnant when she went to the hospital last Wednesday due to problems.
Emma Kelly claims she found out her daughter’s heart had stopped at the hospital.
“I was informed there was no other option except to deliver our kid next,” she said on Instagram on Monday. “Ryan and I were in the hospital for over 48 hours.”
“I worked with her for 24 hours before she arrived on December 17th.” I was so upset at first that I had to deliver her, only for it to turn out to be the best thing that could have happened in this nightmare. It allowed Ryan and me to hold our little Saint, Mary Kate, before saying our last goodbyes.
“These 19 weeks with her opened our hearts and minds in ways we never believed possible, and I’ll be eternally thankful for the time we had with the little child who made us mom and dad.”
“She was little, perfect, and adored by everyone who knew she existed.” I don’t think we’ll ever understand why God chose to call her home at the time he did, but our faith remains unwavering. He understands better than we do, and she was needed back home, in Heaven.”
Ryan Kelly shared his thoughts on Twitter.
He remarked, “Nothing made me happier than being your Dad.” “You gave that gift to your mother and me.” You were and always will be a miracle.
“I’m sorry you never got to see us or take your first steps since you have angel wings now.” You left this world much too young, but we believe God had a greater plan for you. Your mother and I take comfort in knowing that you are being cared after by your great grandparents.
“Thank you for keeping an eye on us and your future siblings.” I’ll always wonder what you’d be like now. I love you till we meet again, my lovely baby.”
The Colts responded with an emoji of a blue heart and a butterfly.
Kelly was unable to attend the Indianapolis Colts’ 27-17 victory against the New England Patriots on Saturday night due to the death of his daughter.
Following the game, Colts head coach Frank Reich stated that the team was honouring the family, while Patriots head coach Bill Belichick expressed his condolences.
“We can offer him the same love and attention off the field… It only goes to show that life hits everyone hard at some point. We’re here to support Ryan and his family through this difficult time.”
