San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin and his wife Morgan are opening up about experiencing another traumatic event. The couple shared Wednesday that they lost two twin boys during pregnancy in November.
The Goodwins shared that story in a YouTube video.
Around the 2:45 mark, Morgan Goodwin begins recounting the story. The Goodwins found out they were pregnant again with twins, but wanted to keep it a secret after losing a child during the 2017 season.
Morgan went into preterm labor in November and was placed on bedrest. She rushed to the hospital where she discovered her water broke. One of the babies did not survive the trip to the hospital. Morgan underwent surgery to try to save the other child, but the boy did not make it.
The Goodwins explained they decided to share the news because it helps to talk about it. They also added that they appreciated all the support and positive messages they received from fans the first time they went through this.
Marquise and Morgan lost their first child in 2017, when Morgan found out she had an incompetent cervix. As she explains in the video, she had a cervical cerclage put in at some point after the couple lost their first child. Morgan also had a miscarriage when she and Marquise were in college.
After telling their story, the Goodwins decided to share their gender reveal video. They filmed the video privately, and hoped to release it when they announced the pregnancy.
