So if you need someone to talk to, reach out to me on Instagram [@aubreyoday] and I will be your sounding board and someone you can confide in.”
We’re sure so many women would love to connect over this difficult and sensitive subject. The Show Stopper vocalist went on:
“Let’s value, appreciate, and have an immense amount of respect for all the moms out there and the rest of us who will be unstoppable during our pursuit to becoming moms one day! There are also so many children who need happy and healthy homes, so being a mother and a leader will never be something we can’t all have!”
So true! Everyone’s journey to parenthood looks different, but that doesn’t mean one option is better than the other!

over on Instagramthe All About Aubrey The star also opened up about the tragic news, captioning a photo of herself:
“I wouldn’t change anything. I think it’s important to let things happen, and stay ‘happened’. People change so you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they are right.. and sometimes things you want most fall apart so that better things can fall together. Everything happens for a reason, I’ll always love you my lil one.”
We are sending Aubrey SO much love right now. We cannot imagine how heartbreaking this news must be for her, and the fact she is trying to stay so positive and be a support system for other women is so inspirational.
