Michelle Department miscarries over Christmas
Michelle Branch announced that she suffered a pregnancy loss over Christmas.
The singer “All You Wanted” wrote a post on Instagram about her tough Christmas season, in which she lost her third child and the second with her husband, the Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney. The Nashville-based musician also remembered being in town when a bomb exploded on December 25th.
“Just when we got third and went home (A baseball metaphor ?! I know.) 2020 was like, ‘No, I’m not done yet.’ December decided to really take us out with a bang! No, literally. A bomb went off in downtown Nashville yesterday, “she wrote. “And to keep twisting a dagger in my heart, I experienced my first miscarriage (ugh! Motherf — uh!)”
Michelle shared that despite the challenging circumstances, she and her family still found a way to celebrate.
She added, “But unfortunately, between crying and eating Christmas cookies, I decided to put on lipstick and a dress. We drank champagne all day. We cooked an incredible meal and sang Christmas carols cuddled by a blazing fire 5 more days until 2021. ”
