Remy Ma opened up about a difficult time in her life as she shared news of a recent miscarriage on Monday (January 23).

In a video uploaded to Instagram this week, Remy can be seen laying in a hospital bed. She then goes on to share the reason behind her hospital visit.

“So, I started planning. Had a baby shower to go to. Had a chance to go to the store and see mad baby stuff. I bought a pregnancy journal. Never for one second thought that it would end like this. In the hospital,” Remy Ma said in her IG video.

In the caption to the clip, the New York City MC explained that she didn’t initially plan on making news of her miscarriage public. She added that it was the words of her husband and fellow rapper, Papoose, that provided her with a change of heart.

The couple did not provide details on when the miscarriage took place.

First, thank you to everyone that sent their congrats as well as condolences?? 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 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 ?#BlackLove #RemyMa #MeetTheMackies
