In the first image, Odette stood upright with her hand under her then-growing baby bump, while the other showed her husband Dave planting a kiss on it.
“The only thing that was certain was how Dave and I both felt when I found out I was pregnant. We were delighted.
“After two miscarriages after Charlie and after our personal journey as a couple, we finally felt like we were in the right place and our gift was this baby in my tummy,” she explained.
Odette and Dave welcomed their first and only child, daughter Charlie Mae, five, in 2015.

And last August, the couple announced that they had reconciled after a 10-month separation that began in October 2019.
Regarding the first photo in Tuesday’s slideshow, Annable noted that she was “15 weeks pregnant at the time” [it] was taken back in December” and that “today would have been” [her unborn child’s] due date.’
“There was another plan and our baby is no longer with us. I share this because what you see on a social media page is not always what happens in real life.

‘My social media page mainly consists of a highlight reel. I try to keep it as authentic as possible, but I also focus mostly on the positive because that feels good to me,” she wrote.
“But this is real and this is part of life. The really difficult things that you never think or want to come your way.
“I miss feeling this sweet baby grow up, but I also know it was a gift to carry our baby and a privilege for even the short time we spent together.”

The Walker star wrote that, despite feeling sadness, it “never felt right not to share or celebrate this moment in our lives,” but that she “just needed the space to do it.”
‘I have found that there are always silver linings in the hard stuff if you look closely. And they are without a doubt my husband and my daughter.
“This experience has given me a new appreciation for my husband, who has been a rock to me and unwavering with his support, although I know he felt it all too. I was amazed at what a miracle Charlie is.
“What a miracle and a blessing it is to have a healthy child. I am so thankful for my family. We love your little angel forever and ever,’ Odette concluded.
