90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After's Shaeeda and Bilal are opening up about heartbreaking news.

In an Instagram post on Saturday, the couple revealed they've experienced a pregnancy loss. The news comes after the couple debated starting a family during the series' last season.

"It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of our recent miscarriage. We had been overjoyed to be expecting our first child together, but unfortunately, it was not meant to be at this time," the caption in a joint Instagram post from the two read.

"We want to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude to all of the family, friends, loved ones and fans who have reached out to us with love and support during this difficult time. Your kind words and gestures have been a source of comfort and strength for us," they continued. "While we are still grieving and processing this loss, we know that as we plan and as G'd plans, G'd is the best of planners."

The couple also offered support and solidarity to others trying to start their families.

Bilal Pops the Baby Question to Shaeeda on 90 Day Tell-All

After a season of debating whether or not a baby made sense for their relationship, Bilal "proposed" to Shaeeda with a baby onesie on a January episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After.

In the center of the studio, Bilal got down on one knee and offered the onesie (which read: "If you think I'm cute you should see my mommy") to Shaeeda.

"I want to ask you, will you have my baby? Do you want to go half on a baby?" he said.

Shaeeda responded with tears, and gave Bilal a giant hug. When asked if this changes their "timeline," she said: "I think so."

"I just hope that I'll be able to be a mom, and that I don't have to wait too long," she added through tears.
