Alex Madison and Jon Bouffard, popular social media personalities and hosts of the “Give It To Me Straight” podcast, have shared the heartbreaking news of their pregnancy loss.

Madison and Bouffard, who were expecting their first child, made the announcement on Instagram and TikTok on Friday, June 21.

In their emotional post, Madison, 31, conveyed the depth of their pain, stating, “There are no words that can truly capture the depth of this pain. Nothing can prepare you for this. Our hearts will never be the same.”

The couple revealed that they lost their baby boy, Leo Grey, after 26 weeks of pregnancy. Madison expressed her grief and love for their son, writing, “I had the privilege of carrying you for 26 weeks, and we will carry you in our hearts for a lifetime. Until we meet again, Leo Grey.”

The announcement was met with an outpouring of support from their followers and fellow influencers.

Kat Stickler, a relative and fellow TikToker, offered her condolences, saying, “I love you and our new guardian angel. Here with you always through everything.”

Social media influencer Tara Mackey added, “Omg alex I am so sorry. my heart hurts for you guys so much.”

One supportive fan commented, “I am so sorry that this happened & my heart aches with you guys. Please know you have thousands of fans who are praying for you and your family during this difficult time.”

Another follower wrote on TikTok, “I’m so sorry Alex & Jon. We could all tell how happy you guys were to become parents. the whole community is crying with you guys.”

Madison and Bouffard, who first met through Tinder, tied the knot in September 2019. Their journey to parenthood had been a significant part of their lives and social media presence.

When they announced their pregnancy in March, they shared their excitement and readiness to become parents.

Bouffard, 36, had said, “We knew we were ready when we talked about becoming parents every day. It became part of our regular conversation, and the timing finally felt right.

I’m excited to have a mini ‘us’ enter the world. Half of me, half of her. But hopefully, it’s 100% her personality.”

The couple’s candidness about their loss has resonated deeply with their followers, many of whom have expressed empathy and support.

Madison reposted her Instagram carousel to her Stories, captioning it, “Fly high my angel,” further sharing her grief and inviting others to join them in mourning.

The tragedy has brought together a community of supporters who have shared similar experiences or who simply want to offer their comfort.

The comment sections of both their Instagram and TikTok posts have been filled with messages of love and solidarity, showing the impact the couple has had on their followers.

The loss of Leo Grey is a poignant reminder of the unpredictability and fragility of pregnancy.

Madison and Bouffard’s willingness to share their sorrow publicly has helped to raise awareness about the pain of pregnancy loss, an often-silent grief.

Their followers have praised them for their strength and vulnerability. One fan summed up the sentiment by writing, “My heart immediately sunk. I’m so sorry. We all love you both and are here for you.”

As Madison and Bouffard navigate this difficult time, their online community continues to offer a space of support and understanding.

The couple’s openness has turned their personal tragedy into a moment of collective mourning, allowing others who have experienced similar losses to feel seen and less alone.
