List of famous people who lost babies at birth, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. Losing a child is a tragedy that no parent should have to endure, especially without getting to spend any time with the newborn. Unfortunately, several celebrities have lost children at birth or shortly thereafter. Some of these famous people's babies were stillborn, while others got to spend at least a few days with their children.
Who is the most famous person who lost a baby at birth? Keanu Reeves tops this list. Keanu Reeves's girlfriend, Jennifer Syme, gave birth to a stillborn daughter, Ava Archer Syme-Reeves, in 1999. Syme also died in a car accident 18 months later.
Joseph Simmons (AKA Rev Run) had daughter, Victoria Anne Simmons, who died at birth in 2006. He and his wife, Justine, released a statement shortly after the death of their daughter, which read, "On September 26, 2006, Victoria Anne Simmons for some unknown reason chose to come early and unfortunately did not survive. We must accept whatever is there and once you accept unconditionally, then everything is beautiful. Every pain has a purifying effect."Do you think that you can ever recover from the loss of a child?
