The actor revealed on Instagram that the miscarriage had happened late in the pregnancy, and that his wife had become unwell as a result.
Posting a photo of Kimberly and one of his daughters, he wrote that he was “Wrecked. Devastated. In shock.”
“As many of you have said, ‘There are no words…’ and it’s true. Which is why in a time like this it’s enough to know that you’re there. Grieving AND counting our blessings today.”
