When Superbowl MVP, Nick Foles, missed the Organized Team Activities for his new team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, due to a “personal reason,” many of his fans feared the worst.

In an Instagram post Wednesday, Tori explained that on Sunday, having suffered a “rough couple days fighting a “virus” of some sort,” she went into extremely early labor with their second child.

“Not long after we learned we had miscarried our baby boy,” Tori wrote. “To fully labor and deliver and even see our baby boy was a pretty devastating process.”

The 28-year-old noted that she later found out she had “contracted an infection of pneumonia in the blood,” which led to her acute illness.

Through the devastation of such a horrific loss, Tori talked openly about how she and Nick were navigating through the pain with God by their side.

“The emotions go back and forth from immense and overwhelming sadness, confusion and anger to a firm belief that God has this fully in his hands and will use this for good,” she wrote. “We cannot always understand or explain, but we know that is true.”

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Read below for full story. So thankful for this family right here and miss having them right down the street! Our weekend together was not quite as planned, but blessed by their presence and the help they provided us with an unexpected set of circumstances that nick and I suddenly found ourselves in. As several of you knew, we were about 15 weeks pregnant with our 2nd baby. Early Sunday morning after a rough couple days fighting a “virus” of some sort, I went into sudden labor and knew something was wrong. Not long after we learned we had miscarried our baby boy. To fully labor and deliver and even see our baby boy was a pretty devastating process. Come to find that I had contracted an infection of pneumonia in the blood. The emotions go back and forth from immense and overwhelming sadness, confusion and anger to a firm belief that God has this fully in his hands and will use this for good. We cannot always understand or explain, but we know that is true. We’ve endured some unique challenges as a couple so far, but never quite knew what something like this felt like and now we do. We have so much compassion and sensitivity to those who have gone through a miscarriage at any point and in any circumstance. We know they all happen very differently. We are finally home from the hospital and recovering physically from the infection with antibiotics (already much better) as well as emotionally from this traumatic loss. This will take time. So many thanks to everyone who has reached out to us and who has been praying for us. Also a heartfelt thank you to Baptist Beaches hospital staff in maternity. What an incredible team of doctors and nurses that took care of us the last 4 days. ❤️ Thank you Taylor family for being here this weekend. We had a pretty fun weekend planned, and it was turned upside down, but God knew we needed you. ❤️

You are an incredible, strong and courageous mama… thank you for sharing your story and being so vulnerable. Praying for peace and love for your whole family. We’re always here for you.”
