Nabela Noor is excited to be a parent along with her husband, Seth Martin.
“This is our rainbow baby after our very public, devastating miscarriage,” she says. “This miracle pregnancy came just a little over 2 and a half weeks after our miscarriage as a complete and total surprise and miracle. Our rainbow baby came to us when we were in the middle of our deepest storm and completely took us by surprise.”
After publically speaking about her miscarriage in June, Noor shared a video on how the pregnancy loss was a “dark time” for her.
“There was a short, short, short window of time where I got to live this little fairytale where I was pregnant,” she said in the video of her pregnancy earlier this year. “It was the best week of my life.”
And on Aug. 23, Noor celebrated her six-year wedding anniversary with Martin, writing to Instagram:
“After nearly 9 years together, an emotional journey towards acceptance from my family, getting married, starting our own business, facing and overcoming financial hardships as newlyweds, establishing our company, finding the dream team, buying our first home, traveling the world, building and renovating, battling nearly 6 years of infertility, the loss of our miracle baby, and becoming closer than ever together… I look back on our journey of marriage and see God’s Grace and love covering us the entire time.”
“He has provided for us even when it felt like He was taking from us,” Noor continued.
“I can’t imagine our love without feeling God’s love as the root of it. This specific year of marriage was full of trials, heartbreak, tears and grief as we continued to struggle with our infertility journey… But it was also full of love. Lots and lots of love.”
“And if the rest of our lives together is filled with this much love, I will walk through any valley, any storm and any journey with you,” added Noor. “I love you, @itssethmar. Cheers to this next year of marriage together. Our best year is upon us. I can feel it.”
