Ludacris‘ wife suffered a miscarriage earlier this year.
The 40-year-old rapper’s spouse, Eudoxie Mbouguiengue, has revealed the couple tragically lost their unborn baby during the early stages of pregnancy at the beginning of 2018 and she had to undergo surgery to remove the embryo from her body.
Eudoxie wrote on her Instagram account: “Lord, I thank you for the gift of life. This year didn’t necessarily start off right for us. 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.”
The brunette beauty turned to religion to help her get through the traumatic time and she soon realized that she was already “blessed” because she and Luda already have a 3-year-old daughter, Cadence, together.
She explained: “I spent hours focusing on the many ways the Lord has blessed me. How could I complain when God has blessed me with the opportunity to already experience motherhood? I’m sharing this with you all to remind you to live in gratitude. When the enemy tries to knock you down, get even closer to your faith. 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.
“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!!”
The couple’s tragic loss comes just months after Ludacris — who already has three daughters Shaila, 21, Karma, 16, and Cai, 4, from previous relationships — said he and Eudoxie were desperately trying to get pregnant with a son this year.
He said: “My New Year’s resolution is to get a boy, believe it or not. We’re going to try one more time. So all next year I’m going to be trying to get a boy.”
The couple married in 2014.
