Danny Cipriani has revealed the very sad news that his fiancée Victoria Rose has lost their baby at 24 weeks.
The rugby player, 32, told fans today (Tuesday, October 6) he is trying to stay positive following the tragic loss.
Addressing his 250,000 Instagram followers, Danny noted how the couple had already named the unborn child.
He wrote in the post’s caption: “At 24 weeks we lost River, our son. Was and is always going to be difficult, but we supported each other through it and found our love grew and got stronger.
“This may seem a sad post, it isn’t.”
An emotional Danny also noted 2020 has been “a challenging year, for many different reasons”.
At 24 weeks we lost River, our son.
But he stressed how important his relationship with Victoria has been in his life.
He said: “I’ve had to emotionally overcome and heal in different ways that I haven’t experienced before. In doing so it brought up old trauma and wounds that were unresolved.
“Then the most beautiful thing happened, I was going to be a father and I fell in love. Deeply in love.
“For me falling in love was the scariest thing to do hence my behaviour over the years, she is the most magnificent, kind, wise, and beautiful person I’ve ever met.”
The lengthy address also saw Danny express his resolve to live a happy life with his wife-to-be.
Danny Cipriani ‘more determined than ever’
“I’m more determined than ever to keep growing learning and loving with my woman,” he continued.
“I’m also locked in to represent myself the best I can on the field which to this day I still don’t think I have done… The future is exciting it’s going to take hard work. I’m ready.”
