“This year didn’t necessarily start off right for us. I had a miscarriage and needed to have surgery,” Eudoxie Bridges shared on Instagram on Monday. “It was very easy to complain and self-pity but I refused to let the enemy win. I stayed faithful and prayed up. I spent hours focusing on the many ways the Lord has blessed me.”
Bridges and the rapper married in 2014 after five years of dating. They share 2-year-old daughter Cadence, whom she referenced in her reflective post.
“How could I complain when God has blessed me with the opportunity to already experience motherhood?” she continued. “I’m sharing this with you all to remind you to live in gratitude. When the enemy tries to knock you down, get even closer to your faith. My faith has been tested many times throughout my life but I’m only getting stronger. Life will not always go as planned and keeping a positive and grateful attitude will only bring more and bigger blessings.”
Bridges had the support of her friends and family, who showered her with gifts for her birthday, which also happened to be Monday. Ludacris also surprised her with purple roses, as well as a party that featured air hockey, a lifesize pool table, shuffleboard and a birthday cake.
