Jonathan Rhys Meyers and his wife Mara Lane recently suffered through the miscarriage of their second child. Lane chose to document some of their personal struggles on Instagram, sharing details about how their current situation has caused Meyers to relapse in his alcohol addiction. And late on Tuesday night, she decided to follow up on that post by sharing how the family is coping and memorializing their unborn child.

The couple, who have been together since 2013, buried their unborn baby under a tree in their front yard and named the child Willow. The post shows a picture of the tree, and in the same photo gallery within the post, the next part shows a sonogram of baby Willow. 

To the showering of love received, thank you from bottom of our hearts. I am so humbled and got teary-eyed several times at how beautiful humans can be and so sad but hopeful with the stories shared of depression and miscarriage and addictions. Thank you for sharing your soul and stories back, as this helps us feel that we are not alone. Anyone who knows me personally knows I would normally never share such personal sadness (only because in my head, I would not want to burden others and because I trust that in time God will heal me) but I was happy to come to my husband's defense. I could not sit back and see him attacked by Darkness publicly during such a tender time. Thank you for coming to ours. Please continue to always write or comment about your days no matter what I share as when I see it I will return the love back someway or it will be read by someone else who can too. I so wish that I could support you on all your walks and sad days so hopefully the posts I share will make you laugh or lighten your days or make you smile/brighten them somehow. This is not a highlights nor lowlights reel, but simply an in-the-middle to keep in contact. I was very vulnerable in my last post as well as being at an all-time low and on such days I sometimes will feel the need for support, so thank you for being so kind to me and being a safe place. We will try to be more transparent on our journey as I see it may be helpful for others as well as ourselves. We don’t have to carry the weight of the world ourselves. We can help lift one another up. I have been given peace and Baby Willow is now planted in the tree in front of our home that has weeping long branches and leaves so we can brush our faces in soft leaves in passing or we can see the baby dance with the wind in the branches as they sway. It is helping me process the situation … as Nature does. Thank you again Dr Stu for getting us through that as watching a sonogram not have a heartbeat is very surreal and beyond sad. Thank you Father God for supernatural peace. May you afford those who seek you the same peace and may we grow as humans and have more compassion for all humanity.

She went on to thank her doctor for getting them through it. "Watching a sonogram not have a heartbeat is very surreal and beyond sad," she said.

Lane also thanked all the people who commented with their own stories on her previous Instagram post.

We wish the family all the best as they cope with the loss of their little one.
