So heartbreaking.

Bachelor Nation star Sarah Herron has revealed her heartbreak after the loss of her newborn son Oliver.

Opening up on Instagram about the devastating loss, the reality star shared a snap of her holding baby Oliver while his dad Dylan Brown kissed her on the head.

In the post, she wrote: “He passed away in his dad’s arms shortly after.

“There are no words for the magnitude of loss and pain we’re experiencing. It’s beautiful and simultaneously tragic. He had my nose and his dad’s mouth and long fingers.”

Sarah and Dylan had previously revealed their son was born at only 24 weeks with the couple referring to their baby as their “IVF miracle”.

Sarah appeared on the The Bachelor before starring on two seasons of Bachelor in Paradise and wrote that her son had “defied so many odds and fought through so many hard milestones to be here.”

She continued to say that “the higher powers still had other plans for the three of us.”

“He has taught us so much about the integrity of life, love and death. Oliver filled our home and hearts with so much love and most importantly, optimism,” she said.

“The stars aligned to create Baby Oliver with a deep, meaningful purpose bigger than we’ll ever understand. His body was small, but his legacy will always be larger than life to us.

“While our hearts are shattered beyond comprehension, we are comforted knowing that our son’s soul only ever knew love and will not suffer in a body that wasn’t built for this life.

“We’ll never understand the cruelty of it all, but through the darkness, Oliver remains so so bright. We love you so much, baby boy. You will never be replaced. You are so perfect and awesome. Love, Mommy and Daddy.”
