Couple Behind Viral Baby Announcement Insists Pregnancy Was Real After Suffering Miscarriage
Days after a couple shared a surprise pregnancy announcement video that went viral, they revealed they had suffered a miscarriage.
Some viewers are now accusing the YouTube stars, Sam and Nia, of making up the pregnancy story to get video views.
“This feels extremely artificial,” one wrote, while another added: “It feels so staged.”
But the couple, who did not see a doctor before posting either of the videos, is standing by their story.
“Look into my eyes when I learn I'm pregnant,” Nia told INSIDE EDITION. “I'm not that good an actress. I couldn't have faked that…
“This is real and true. Our emotions are raw and real. 100 percent. Absolutely happened.”
The couple’s first video has been viewed more than 12 million times. It shows a pregnancy announcement with a twist.
Instead of Nia learning she was pregnant and then telling her husband, he found out first by taking a urine sample from their unflushed toilet.
“She doesn't flush the toilet during the night because she's afraid to wake the baby,” Sam explained.
When he took the urine and used it on a pregnancy test, it was positive – and Sam’s ecstatic reaction was caught on camera.
He then surprised his wife by showing her the test, and together they celebrated the news.
“I was so happy. We had been trying for a year,” Nia told INSIDE EDITION.
But just days later, they revealed she had lost the baby and shared the heartbreaking news in another video.
“Bam, it just hit us like a bomb,” she said. “It's the hardest part, just knowing that it's really gone.”
The couple said that they plan on trying to have another baby – and they will not hesitate to share everything on YouTube again.
