Jamie Otis and her husband, Doug Hehner, are trying for a baby just months after suffering a miscarriage and losing their baby boy, Johnathan Edward.
The Married at First Sight star took to Instagram to share a photo from her Snapchat. On it, she wrote, “Working on making another baby. Maybe she will be named Henley.”
In the caption, she hinted as to why Henley would be a special name for her “rainbow baby” — which is a term given to children born after mom and dad suffer a miscarriage.
Jamie — who was featured on The Bachelor before meeting her husband on MAFS — has been incredibly open about her experience losing her child and her decision to share a photo of her baby boy.
“October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. I can’t sleep well tonight so I blogged about my sweet boy, Johnathan Edward. I realize there is great stigma associated with sharing photos of your baby who was born too early and has already gone to heaven so I want to say sorry if this offends you,” she captioned the black-and-white image. “However, if there’s one thing my husband has taught it’s this: ‘Don’t live your life trying NOT to offend anybody and trying to please everybody.’”
She continued, “I hope by me sharing my sweet boy, Johnny (as Doug and I call him), you’ll realize that he’s a harmless, helpless baby who deserves to be remembered, not hidden away because his image may offend someone. And if you’ve lost your baby early, please know that you’re not alone. Unfortunately, 1 in 4 women are affected by this. Yet, no one talks about it. I hope this can change. I’ll be the first in my circle. You be the first in yours. My prayers go out to everyone who has lost their sweet baby too early.”
