Last week, we shared a pregnancy announcement video which went viral after a husband found out wife was pregnant before she did.

American YouTuber, Sam Rader filmed the moment he did a pregnancy test on his wife, Nia Rader's urine and found out she was pregnant.

He later filmed himself giving the happy the news to his wife - a video that received more than 10 million views.

However just three days later, the couple uploaded a video to their YouTube channel announcing they have suffered a miscarriage.

Discussing the pain of losing an unborn baby, Nia said: "We were so happy and you could see in our vlog from yesterday, we were just so overjoyed. And it was like a huge celebration.

"And then it - bam - it just hit us like a bomb."

Sam said on the video: "Nia and I mourning together like this has made us stronger. And it's made me appreciate my children more. This morning when I woke up, I loved on them so, so much."

He added the experience has made them "stronger" as a family.

Nia said to those who have experienced miscarriage, she can now relate to how they feel.

She added: "I have felt my womb empty out. I never ever knew women felt that way.

"I stood up and I just felt empty."

We Need To Talk About Miscarriage

Sam said they are going to continue to try and grow their family.

The couple wrote in their description for the video they believe there is a "stigma" surrounding miscarriage and encouraged people to talk about it with them, sharing their experiences.

The news comes not long after Mark Zuckerberg, who announced him and his wife were having their first child together, opened up about the struggles they faced trying to get pregnant.

Writing his story on Facebook, he said: "We've been trying to have a child for a couple of years and have had three miscarriages along the way.

"Most people don't discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you as if you're defective or did something to cause this. So you struggle on your own."

Zuckerberg said discussing these issues will bring people closer together and give others hope.
