Taking to her Instagram account shortly after James made the tragic announcement, Kimberly revealed that she nearly “lost her life” during the miscarriage.
Speaking on her Instagram Stories, Kimberly thanked her followers for their support during this difficult time. The 37-year-old said:
"Thank you to everyone for all the love. I don't even know how I'm gonna begin to respond to it all, so I think I'll just have to do it here," she began.
"We lost our baby — boy, by the way — and I almost lost my life, which is not a story that has been told. But at some point, I can dig into the details with you guys about what happened in the emergency room."
She continued, "I'm not really ready to talk further about everything yet, but at some point, I will."
James also penned an emotional post on his own Instagram account.
“Wrecked. Devastated. In shock,” he wrote. “That’s how we’re feeling right now after the soul we thought were going to welcome into our family in April has taken a short cut to whatever lies beyond this life.
“We’ve been through this before, but never this late in the pregnancy, and never accompanied by such a scary, horrific threat to @vanderkimberly and her wellbeing.
"Grateful that she’s now recovering, but we’ve only just begun unpacking the layers of this one.”
Kimberly and James, 42, have been married since 2010 and share children, Olivia, nine, Joshua, seven, Annabel, five, Emilia, three, and Gwendolyn, one.
Sadly, this is not the couple’s first experience with miscarriage. In September last year, Kimberly revealed she had suffered three previous miscarriages in the past.
"I’ve had three miscarriages, all around 10 weeks gestation,” she wrote. “I let them all happen naturally.
“I had a loving husband, a compassionate birthing team and I felt spiritually grounded about them. And even in the best of circumstances, they all broke my heart. I was devastated every single time. After one of them, I sat in the shower crying for almost five hours.
“Thankfully I am fully at peace with them all now and have five children.”
