Michelle Branch shared that she recently suffered a miscarriage.
“Just when we were rounding third and heading home (A baseball metaphor?! I know.) 2020 was like, ‘nah, I ain’t done yet.’ December decided to really finish us off with a bang! No, literally. A bomb went off in downtown Nashville yesterday,” Branch began her detailed post on Saturday. “And to further twist a dagger in my heart, I experienced my first miscarriage…”
Despite her tragic loss, Branch noted that she and her family pushed forward to try and celebrate the holidays.
“But alas, between the crying and binge eating of Christmas cookies, I decided to put on lipstick and a dress. We drank champagne alllll day. Made an incredible meal and sang Christmas songs snuggled up by a roaring fire,” she wrote alongside photos that show her spending time with her husband, Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, as well as her sister Nicole and two children.
Counting down the days until the New Year, Branch said she’s, “limping to the finish line.”
Though, she made sure to add that her family has helped her get through the challenges that came with 2020.
“These people, my precious family, my husband, sister and kids have been the MVP’s,” Branch wrote. “I couldn’t imagine spending a year isolated with anyone else. Happy Christmas, everyone.”
Branch is a mother to her 15-year-old daughter, Owen Isabelle Landau, who she shares with ex-husband Teddy Landau.
In August 2018, the Grammy-winner gave birth to her first son Rhys James Carney, 2.
Branch and her family live in Nashville, Tenn., where an RV exploded and injured 3 people on Friday.
