Singer LeToya Luckett appeared on the latest episode of the VH1 reality series T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle and spoke about the difficulties of her current pregnancy and revealing she’d suffered a miscarriage about three years ago.
While shopping for baby clothes with her friend Que, Luckett spoke about a hospital visit because of pain that turned out to be “full-blown contractions.”
The soon-to-be mom explained that doctors wanted to run tests to see if she was in pre-labor, which worried her, “especially with what happened last time.” She was already feeling alone because her husband, Tommi, had gone to take his daughter, Madison, to get new clothes for school.
In 2015, Luckett suffered a miscarriage. She told Que that she is experiencing anxiety over the loss as she progresses in her current pregnancy.
“Being pregnant again, I remember for my first trimester I was terrified the whole time,” Luckett said. “Almost not really wanting to accept that I was pregnant because I didn’t want it to happen again and I wanted a baby so bad.”
She tearfully continued, “Carrying a baby is not easy. It’s not.”
To keep up with Luckett’s pregnancy journey, watch T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle on Mondays on VH1 at 9 p.m. EST.
