Bachelor star Sarah Herron reveals her baby son died ‘in his father’s arms’ and shares heartbreaking pictures from the hospital
THE Bachelor star Sarah Herron has announced that her baby son Oliver has died after being born at the age of 24 weeks.
In a heartbreaking post, Sarah said her newborn died in the arms of her fiancé, Dylan Brown, on Jan. 28.
The 36-year-old shared a devastating black and white photo of her holding Oliver and Dylan kissing her on the head.
Sarah captioned the post: “He died shortly after in his father’s arms.
“There are no words for the magnitude of the loss and pain we are experiencing. It’s beautiful and tragic at the same time.
“He had my nose and his father’s mouth and long fingers.”
Sarah – who starred in season 17 of ‘The Bachelor’ and two seasons of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ – revealed that Oliver had been her and Dylan’s ‘IVF miracle’.
The reality star wrote: “Oliver, our IVF miracle has braved so many adversities and fought through so many tough milestones to be here, but the higher powers had other plans for the three of us.
“Our time together was short, but we are thankful for the days we had with Oliver in my womb.
“He taught us so much about the integrity of life, love and death. Oliver has filled our homes and hearts with so much love and most of all optimism.

She concluded: “Love, Mommy and Daddy.”
