It’s been almost two months since Married at First Sight‘s Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner lost their son four months into Otis’ pregnancy.

And now, the reality star and author is opening up about some of the feelings she experienced after the heartbreaking tragedy.

“I felt kind of silly. You can sense that people around you kind of just want you to … keep going, you know?” a teary-eyed Otis, 30, said on a Thursday segment of The Tomorrow Show with Kevin Undergaro. “I remember, [Doug] came home from work and I was just trying to stop the crying, but I couldn’t.

“So he comes up the stairs and he literally just dropped his work bag and everything and came over and let me cry,” she continues. “It was just so comforting.”

Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner Name the Son They Lost: ‘He Deserves a Beautiful Name to Be Remembered By’

07/18/2016 at 02:25 PM ET

Married at First Sight‘s Jamie Otis has been open about her recent tragic experience in losing her baby boy four months into her pregnancy.

And now, the reality star and wife of Doug Hehner is blogging about how the couple is trying to stay positive — as well as the name they chose for their son.

“We wanted to name our baby the perfect name. A name that is full of meaning, warmth and love. He deserves a beautiful name to be remembered by,” the reality star, 30, wrote in a post published on her website Monday.

The name Otis and Hehner picked? Johnathan Edward Hehner. She notes that Johnathan means “gift from God,” and Edward is Hehner’s middle name — after his grandfather.

“Our firstborn will share [Daddy’s] middle name. I think this is so beautiful and meaningful,” continues Otis, who also previously posted a loving message to her son on Instagram. “I hope this little boy knows how much his mommy and daddy love him.”

She adds, “[Just because we] lost him before we were even able to rock him and bounce him doesn’t take away the immense amount of love we have for him. We will never forget our little Johnathan Edward.”
