Courtney Stodden has suffered a miscarriage while pregnant with her first child with Doug Hutchison.

“It is with a heavy heart to inform you that last week Courtney Stodden suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage,” Stodden’s manager Gina Rodriguez said in a statement to PEOPLE.

“Courtney and her husband, Doug, are at an emotional loss for words and are using this time to grieve with their close family and friends.

“Please respect their privacy as the couple try to cope with losing their precious baby and seek the support they both need,” the statement continued.

Stodden, 21, and Hutchison, 55, first announced that they were expecting a baby in May.

The Big Brother U.K. star said at the time that she felt “happy about [her pregnancy] but extremely overwhelmed.”

On Saturday, Stodden tweeted, “I love you my sweet angel.” She followed up with another tweet, writing, “God is embracing you.”

Two-and-a-half years after tying the knot, Stodden and Hutchison were legally separated.

However, nine months later the pair reconciled, as Stodden’s mother Krista Keller told PEOPLE that her daughter “found out that she really, really loves Doug and he’s the one she wants to spend the rest of her life with.”
