She shared a photo of herself and her rapper and actor husband to mark her birthday and made the heartbreaking revelation of her loss.
‘This year didn’t necessarily start off right for us,’ Mbouguiengue wrote in the picture caption.
‘I had a miscarriage and needed to have surgery. It was very easy to complain and self pity but I refused to let the enemy win. I stayed faithful and prayed up. I spent hours focusing on the many ways the Lord has blessed me.’
The devout beauty, who is 40, went on to explain that she shouldn’t complain since she is a mother already, to Cadence Gaëlle, and said she tries ‘to live in gratitude.’
‘My faith has been tested many times throughout my life but I’m only getting stronger. Life will not always go as planned and keeping a positive and grateful attitude will only bring more and bigger blessings,’ she said.
‘Thank you God for your favor over my life. Thank you for my beautiful family and friends who have been so supportive. Thank you for another year!!’ she concluded.
In addition to his daughter with Mbouguiengue, Ludacris is also father to daughters Karma, 16, and Cai, 5, from previous relationships.
