Remy Ma and Papoose shared a joyous moment on this week’s episode of “Love & Hip Hop,” but sadly, it was followed by tragic news.
To begin the episode, Remy surprised her husband with the fact that they were expecting their first child together. However, that joy became devastating when they learned that they had lost the baby due to complications with the pregnancy.
“The doctor tells me I’m having ectopic pregnancy,” Remy explained on the show. “He said, ‘The baby is forming inside your fallopian tubes so we can’t save the baby,’ but the doctor also tells me that I can’t have any more pregnancies naturally.”
A frustrated Remy laid in the hospital bed with Papoose by her side. “It seems like, no matter what we do, all the worst stuff just happens,” she told her husband. “It doesn’t make sense. Everybody else’s baby is fine. Everybody else that’s pregnant, they all fine. Why mine’s couldn’t be fine?”
Later, she added: “I promised my husband that I would give him the child that he’s been asking me for since almost the day he met me and I can’t do that any more. I can’t. It f**kin’ sucks.”
In a heartbreaking message on Instagram, Remy opened up about the experience some more, revealing that she was planning a baby shower and even had a baby journal. “I never, for one second, thought that it would end like this, in the hospital,” she said in a video clip from the hospital bed. “I was thinking of names, planning a nursery.”
But in her caption, Remy was more hopeful. “Thank you to everyone that sent their congrats as well as condolences,” she wrote. “This was a hard time for me & my husband & we thought long and hard before deciding to share this part of our lives with you all. I was totally against it but in a fit of crying @papoosepapoose said ‘you are not the only one going thru this , we will get thru it’…made me realize how many women like myself experience the same thing and don’t have a strong partner by their side to say it will be alright.
“So I’m here to tell anyone going thru a similar situation that it is not over and God has the last say so,” she added. “Thank you to the staff at the hospital I was in; you all were super nice & respectful and did everything to ensure I was comfortable. And to Dr. Razmzan , who came to perform my surgery at 5am, who tried his best to leave me scarless and succeeded, who eased any fears I had- THANK YOU, & don’t retire yet cuz once we find the right in vitro dr you have to deliver my babies.”
Papoose also thanked supporters for their well wishes. “I wanna thank everyone for the support🙏 tough time for us!!!!!! #blacklove” he wrote.
