In February, famous actor and comedian Rob Delaney revealed some heartbreaking family news. He and his wife, Leah, announced that their 2-year-old son had passed away after fighting brain cancer. 

The news was absolutely devastating and Rob opened up about the situation on his Facebook page. He revealed that their son, Henry, had been diagnosed with brain cancer shortly after his first birthday. 

Rob said, "I have very sad news. My two-and-a-half year old son Henry has passed away. Henry had been diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2016, shortly after his first birthday, following persistent vomiting and weight loss."

"He had surgery to remove the tumor and further treatment through the early part of 2017," he continued. "Then the cancer returned last autumn and he died in January. My wife and Henry's older brothers and I are devastated of course. Henry was a joy. He was smart, funny, and mischievous and we had so many wonderful adventures together, particularly after he'd moved home following fifteen months living in hospitals."

The news was extremely difficult and the family suffered a great loss. Now, however, the Delaney family reportedly has a reason to celebrate. Rob just revealed that his wife is now pregnant! 

Delaney revealed the news on Saturday while talking with the UK's National Health Service. 

Rob said, "Just had 2 typically wonderful @NHSEnglandLDN midwives visit my pregnant wife and I for a home birth assessment."

Though this family has been through so much in the past several months, there is now joy emerging from the sorrow. Please be praying for the couple as they walk through this pregnancy! 

Congrats to Rob and Leah on their child. Share your prayers here! In other recent news, please be praying for the American tourists who were severely injured after a horrific boat explosion.
