One of the most iconic Hollywood actors in recent decades is an actor who is usually recognized but not well-known by name. Warwick Davis has been in show business for years and has appeared in some awesome movies, including Willow and Star Wars.
Sadly, he recently opened up about losing his two children. The interview was heartbreaking and occurred during his time with Bear Grylls.
Warwick was married in 1991. His wife shares his condition of dwarfism. Today, he has a daughter named Annabelle, 21, and son named Harrison, 15. However, he revealed he lost two other children.
"Prior to Annabelle and Harrison, we had a baby boy, Lloyd, who inherited both our conditions… and that is something that proves fatal. It’s something that a baby won’t survive. But Lloyd he lived for survived for nine days, but yeah he was beautiful… but it was a tough time. And yeah, we had a stillborn too," said Warwick.
He then added a heart-melting quote about the strength it brought to his marriage.
The star said he and his wife had made it through the painful time together, saying: ‘That kind of stuff it just makes you stronger [as a couple].’
So, although his children also have spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita (SED), they did not get Warwick's wife's condition, a type of dwarfism known as achondroplasia. When both of those conditions are found in a baby, it is fatal.
Please join us in praying for Warwick and his wife. Although they have two more healthy children, they will never forget their first babies and we pray they will see them in heaven.
