The wife of San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle announced that she went through a miscarriage recently.

According to TMZ Sports, Claire Kittle, the wife of the All-Pro Niners tight end, “made the announcement in an emotional post for Valentine’s Day — saying she and George found out about the pregnancy on Christmas … just three weeks before the Niners began their run in the playoffs.”

TMZ Sports reported that the miscarriage was found days before the 49ers played the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card Round.

Kittle’s wife continued in her emotional post, discussing how distraught she felt.

Kittle said she wanted to share her story to let others know who have gone through this that they aren’t alone.

“The point of sharing this is not for pity but to acknowledge something extremely personal, hard & emotional that has taken place in our life,” she wrote on her social media post.

“To simply talk about it because I felt alone when I got the news, I never knew anyone else who had an ectopic pregnancy before. So here’s my direct line to you, I’ve had one, you’re not alone. It sucks, It’s hard, be strong.”
