Celina on death of one of her premature babies

A day before, Celina opened up about the death of one of her twins five years ago. She shared a picture of the surviving twin along with her husband Peter Haag and penned a long note for all those parents who deal with premature birth of their babies.

She wrote, “It took me 5 years to come to terms with this episode of our lives but I have finally summoned the courage to talk about my ordeal to help many parents who reach out to @peterhaag & I as they deal with the trauma of preterm birth and loss of a baby. Peter n I want such parents to know that they can get through this. In personal experience we both can vouch that your Preemie baby is a true survivor. #preemies show us the power of faith & prayer and the fight of the human spirit. Remember that most #prematurebabies survive and live completely normal, healthy lives.”
