As everyone was celebrating the recent Memorial Day holiday, NFL quarterback Nick Foles and his wife Tori were experiencing one of life’s greatest tragedies.

“As several of you knew, we were about 15 weeks pregnant with our 2nd baby,” Tori Foles wrote on her Instagram page on Wednesday (May 29.) “Early Sunday morning after a rough couple days fighting a ‘virus’ of some sort, I went into sudden labor and knew something was wrong. Not long after we learned we had miscarried our baby boy.”

Read below for full story. So thankful for this family right here and miss having them right down the street! Our weekend together was not quite as planned, but blessed by their presence and the help they provided us with an unexpected set of circumstances that nick and I suddenly found ourselves in. As several of you knew, we were about 15 weeks pregnant with our 2nd baby. Early Sunday morning after a rough couple days fighting a “virus” of some sort, I went into sudden labor and knew something was wrong. Not long after we learned we had miscarried our baby boy. To fully labor and deliver and even see our baby boy was a pretty devastating process. Come to find that I had contracted an infection of pneumonia in the blood. The emotions go back and forth from immense and overwhelming sadness, confusion and anger to a firm belief that God has this fully in his hands and will use this for good. We cannot always understand or explain, but we know that is true. We’ve endured some unique challenges as a couple so far, but never quite knew what something like this felt like and now we do. We have so much compassion and sensitivity to those who have gone through a miscarriage at any point and in any circumstance. We know they all happen very differently. We are finally home from the hospital and recovering physically from the infection with antibiotics (already much better) as well as emotionally from this traumatic loss. This will take time. So many thanks to everyone who has reached out to us and who has been praying for us. Also a heartfelt thank you to Baptist Beaches hospital staff in maternity. What an incredible team of doctors and nurses that took care of us the last 4 days. ❤️ Thank you Taylor family for being here this weekend. We had a pretty fun weekend planned, and it was turned upside down, but God knew we needed you. ❤️

Signs that something was wrong began to come to light last Tuesday (May 28) when the Super Bowl LII MVP did not show up at a Jacksonville Jaguars scheduled to practice due to personal reasons.

“To fully labor and deliver and even see our baby boy was a pretty devastating process,” Toni Foles continued in her Instagram post. “Come to find that I had contracted an infection of pneumonia in the blood. The emotions go back and forth from immense and overwhelming sadness, confusion and anger to a firm belief that God has this fully in his hands and will use this for good. We cannot always understand or explain, but we know that is true.”

She continued, “We are finally home from the hospital and recovering physically from the infection with antibiotics (already much better) as well as emotionally from this traumatic loss. This will take time.  So many thanks to everyone who has reached out to us and who has been praying for us.”

Nick Foles also leaned on his faith in a tweet about the situation.

“We are grateful for all the love, support and prayers,” he wrote on his Twitter page on Wednesday (May 29,) citing Bible passage 2 Corinthians 12:9.

Our thoughts are with Nick and Tori at this difficult time.
