Jana Kramer revealed that she suffered a miscarriage in a heartbreaking message. The country singer took to Instagram on Saturday, December 9, to share an image of herself holding an ultrasound photo with a caption telling her followers about the loss of her child.

“1-3. Today I am 1-3. I debated posting this for the exact reason why it’s a silent struggle. I don’t want I’m sorry or sympathy. I just don’t want to feel alone. And I know I’m not,” she wrote, revealing it’s not her first time experiencing a miscarriage. “This, unfortunately, isn’t my first loss. When I first found out I was pregnant I wanted to shout it from the rooftop but I know for reasons like this we have to wait. So because we don’t tell many, we have to suffer silently…and suffering silently was my thing in the past, but it’s not now.”

1-3 Today I am 1-3. I debated posting this for the exact reason why it’s a silent struggle. I don’t want I’m sorry or sympathy. I just don’t want to feel alone. And I know I’m not. This unfortunately isn’t my first loss. When I first found out I was pregnant I wanted to shout it from the rooftop but I know for reasons like this we have to wait. So because we don’t tell many, we have to suffer silently…and suffering silently was my thing in the past, but it’s not now. For the women out there who have miscarried in the past and need support and a place to grieve their little one lost or to those in the thick of it like me who are currently grieving and in pain, let us all be there for each other. You don’t need to feel alone and maybe that’s me talking to myself but if you need a place to share, I’m here for you…and all of us are (and guys too. We sometimes silence your voice because you feel bad to express how it’s made u feel so let this be a safe place for you too). And because I don’t have all the words to say because I’m knee deep in crying and trying to listen to God, my girlfriend @alittlebitfancy says them for me. But in her Words and her story on her loss. It’s powerful and strong and those who have suffered a loss I truly feel u can heal reading her blog. I know for me it helped. Head over to her page. Her link is in the bio and also in my bio. I love you guys. #yourenotalone

The country singer opened up about the reason why she made the decision to go public about her struggle. “For the women out there who have miscarried in the past and need support and a place to grieve their little one lost or to those in the thick of it like me who are currently grieving and in pain, let us all be there for each other,” she wrote. “You don’t need to feel alone and maybe that’s me talking to myself but if you need a place to share, I’m here for you…and all of us are (and guys too. We sometimes silence your voice because you feel bad to express how it’s made u feel so let this be a safe place for you too).”

The actress, 34, shared a post from her friend Kristen Brust’s blog, A Little Bit Fancy, about losing a child, saying that her followers could read that to help them heal since she couldn’t find all the right words as she was “knee deep in crying and trying to listen to God.”

She added: “I love you guys. #yourenotalone.”

Kramer welcomed daughter, Jolie, 1, with husband Mike Caussin in 2016. As previously reported, the couple, who tied the knot in May 2015, separated one year later after the former football player, 30, allegedly “cheated on her multiple times with multiple women.” He then reportedly entered Mississippi’s Pine Grove rehab facility to treat his sex addiction. The “I Got the Boy” singer previously opened up about her strained relationship with Caussin and her commitment to staying with him for the sake of their child.

“He’s still my husband, yes. So everyone is like, ‘Oh, your estranged husband’ because we’re technically separated. We didn’t separate in the court,” the One Tree Hill alum shared during her appearance on Olivia Caridi’s podcast, Mouthing Off, in September. “Like basically, I was on Chelsea Handler — I’ll never forget this — and then they found out about everything that happened. And so my publicist was like, ‘We really need to make a statement.’ They pulled me back in the greenroom and I was like, ‘Oh, my god, this is the worst moment of my life right now.’ ‘Cause I was going to try to keep it a secret because I really didn’t want things coming out in that way for my daughter to see. And we made a statement saying basically just we were separated trying to figure out things.”

The “Circles” singer also revealed then that her daughter is the reason she has continued to fight for her marriage. “There are days where I’m like, ‘I’m done, I cannot do this anymore.’ And that was like a week ago. And then I’m like, ‘No. Keep fighting.’ I look at my baby girl and I’m like, ‘I’m going to keep fighting,’” she said. “Because I see him trying too. So that’s why we never released a statement because I don’t want to ever be like, ‘Oh, we’re great and in love.’ But that’s not — we’re working on it. We’re in the trenches. My thing is like, maybe down the road, we’ll be like, ‘This is what we’ve accomplished or not.’ I don’t know.”

“The only reason that I stayed is because I’ve seen how hard he’s worked to become the better version of himself and to be a better man and be very present,” she said at the time.
