Luke Bryan and his wife Caroline suffered a miscarriage in between the birth of their two sons.

“When [Thomas “Bo” , 10,] was born, he was a surprise. I got pregnant when we had been married for six months. I was not expecting that at all, and then we had a miscarriage,” Caroline, 39, revealed during this week’s episode of the Get Real -w- Caroline Hobby podcast.

“I knew it wasn’t my fault,” she continued, before adding that her husband “didn’t really know how to comfort” her at the time.

“He just didn’t get it, but as girls, when you go through it and you lose it, there is a loss and it sucks and it hurts,” she remarked, explaining that men sometimes experience the loss differently “because they haven’t felt it” physically.

Caroline, who has been married to the singer since 2006, went on to share that despite her experience, she wasn’t afraid to try again — partially because conception “just happened” without much effort.

“I’m kidding, but I’ll tell people that’s the one easy part of our life,” she shared, before joking, “We’re so fertile I wash our underwear separately.”

However, although Caroline went on to welcome the couple’s second son Tatum “Tate” Christopher in 2010, she said the pain of suffering a miscarriage still endures. “I’ve only lost one, but it does, it just sucks, it just hurts,” she added.

In addition to sharing sons Tate, 8, and Bo, the couple took in Bryan’s nephew and nieces following the deaths of his brother and sister.

The “Most People Are Good” singer previously opened up about his brother, Chris, who died in a car accident in 2000, and the sudden death of his sister Kelly seven years later during a candid interview with ABC News in 2017.

“Just when we started picking up the pieces with my brother, then my sister — we lose my sister,” remarked Bryan, 42. “I’ve watched my family go through ebbs and flows where we get mad at God and we get mad at why this happened.”

After the 2014 death of Kelly’s widower, Ben Cheshire, Bryan and Caroline decided to take in the couple’s three children: son Til, now 17, and college-aged daughters Jordan and Kris.

“We never thought twice about it,” Caroline said. “It was never something that he and I had to sit down and talk about. ‘Should we take this on?’ We just did that.”
