Michelle Department Suffers a Miscarriage Over Christmas
Michelle Branch shared that she suffered a pregnancy loss on Christmas.
On Instagram, the “All You Wanted” singer penned a post about her tough holiday season, which included losing what would have been her third child and second with her husband, Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney. The musician, who lives in Nashville, also recalled being in the city when a bomb exploded on Dec. 25.
“Just when we were rounding third and heading home (A baseball metaphor?! I know.) 2020 was like, ‘nah, I ain’t done yet.’ December decided to really finish us off with a bang! No, literally. A bomb went off in downtown Nashville yesterday,” she wrote. “And to further twist a dagger in my heart, I experienced my first miscarriage (ugh! Motherf—er!)”
Michelle shared that despite the challenging circumstances, she and her family still managed to find a way to celebrate.
She added, “But alas, between the crying and binge eating of Christmas cookies, I decided to put on lipstick and a dress. We drank champagne alllll day. Made an incredible meal and sang Christmas songs snuggled up by a roaring fire. 5 more days until 2021.”
