Amidst the exciting news that Jack Osbourne would be joining Dancing With the Stars, he and wife Lisa experienced a personal tragedy.
The couple confirmed on her blog that they lost their son when Lisa suffered a late-term miscarriage last week.

“I have been dreading this announcement,” Lisa wrote on a post titled ‘Unfortunate Announcement’ on her her mommy-blog, raddestmom.com. “I needed some time before being able to say it. Jack and I lost our baby boy last week. Having a late term miscarriage is by far the hardest thing either of us have ever had to go through.”
Jack and Lisa—who will be married a year this coming October—are parents to 16-month-old Pearl and announced they were expecting a son last month.

A little over a year ago, Jack revealed that he was diagnosed with relapsing remitted multiple sclerosis; despite these personal hardships, the couple has remained positive and will continue to do so during this difficult time.
“It’s important to stay hopeful and optimistic through life’s toughest moments,” they wrote. “We never know why things like this happen. All we can do is trust in God and know he has a plan for our lives.”
