Eudoxie Mbouguiengue, wife of rapper and actor Ludacris, has suffered a miscarriage, an experience that she says she endured with prayer.
Lord, I thank you for the gift of life. This year didn’t necessarily start off right for us. I had a miscarriage and needed to have surgery. It was very easy to complain and self pity but I refused to let the enemy win. I stayed faithful and prayed up. I spent hours focusing on the many ways the Lord has blessed me. How could I complain when God has blessed me with the opportunity to already experience motherhood? I’m sharing this with you all to remind you to live in gratitude. When the enemy tries to knock you down, get even closer to your faith. My faith has been tested many times throughout my life but I’m only getting stronger. Life will not always go as planned and keeping a positive and grateful attitude will only bring more and bigger blessings. Thank you God for your favor over my life. Thank you for my beautiful family and friends who have been so supportive. Thank you for another year!! ❤️

Some women were grateful to learn Mbouguiengue’s news, writing about their own miscarriages in the comment section of the post.
Mbouguiengue, a model and philanthropist, and Ludacris (whose real name is Christopher Brian Bridges) started dating in 2009 and got engaged in 2014 after an elaborate proposal in Costa Rica that involved his spelling out the words “Eudoxie Will You Marry Me” in a field visible from their private plane. “She didn’t say yes. She said HELL YES!” wrote Ludacris on Instagram, adding #milehighproposal.

Only days later, the pair wed. “Why wait? Did the thing before 2015,” the star wrote on Instagram.

Eudoxie often writes about her faith on social media, in an ongoing series called “A Prayer for Today.”
