Prayers are needed for the family of television personality Rah Ali. The “Love & Hip Hop: New York” star recently lost her baby girl as a result of premature birth in May. She was only 5 months pregnant at the time in which the tragedy occurred.
As previously reported, the child only lasted on earth for a few short minutes before taking her final breath. It is unclear what exactly led to premature labor. Ali had a normal and healthy pregnancy before she was rushed to the hospital with contractions.
Ali opened up to PEOPLE shortly after the loss of her newborn baby, who she named “Sanaa.” She went into more details about the tragic day. It all began when she started experiencing severely painful stomach cramps at only 20 weeks.
“I called my husband and he rushed home,” she stated. “The ambulance came and they took me to the hospital. That’s when they told me that my cervix was completely open and that my water had broken.”
“I held her...and she slept in the room with us until the morning when they took her away,” Ali shared. “I felt like I lost my soul.”
“Our bond was so strong. Maybe because God knew I would never be able to experience it...I just felt so connected to her,” she added.
Please keep Ali and her family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. May God bless them with another child if it is His will. In other celebrity news, a Hollywood power couple who shares a young daughter just announced their break-up.
