Keke Wyatt recently posted “a special prayer” on social media for anyone who had something negative to say about her and her husband sharing that they learned their unborn child had a genetic condition.

The singer addressed the lengthy message to all “rude and cruel people who took the time to take to social media and make derogatory and morbid comments” about her pregnancy.

Wyatt felt moved to be “transparent” with her fans and share that her unborn child has trisomy 13, a rare genetic condition, during a performance she gave last weekend.

“I explained to them, the day after my maternity photo session, [that] my husband and I learned that our baby had tested positive for trisomy 13 by the doctor. It was a moment that was not planned on my show, but at the end of the day, I felt in my spirit to share or encourage other women who may have to face this battle,” said writes Wyatt.

“For all the disgusting people who wish me and my baby harm, say what you want about me, I’m used to it… No weapon formed against me will prosper anyway 🙌🏾.. BUT a innocent unborn baby?? Be careful putting your mouth on people,” the singer warned. “I pray that God will grant you grace when life knocks at your door and you don’t reap what you sow. “

Towards the end of his message, the R&B Divas: Atlanta alum thanked those who have sent positive vibes to her more appropriately since she revealed the concerning update on her pregnancy status.

“I will not let negativity drain all my positive energy…. I work hard and my husband and I take care of ALL our children with NO help but GOD OooooKaY! We will continue to believe the Lord’s report! #GodsWillBeDone 💋💋💋,” she wrote at the end of the post.

Wyatt announced she was expecting her 11th child with husband Zackariah Darring in February. The child will be the second of the couple together, American review reports.

Trisomy 13, also known as Patau’s syndrome, refers to the rare genetic condition when a person is born with three copies of chromosome 13 genetic material instead of the standard two copies. according to at Mount Sinai.

The disorder occurs in about 1 in 10,000 newborn babies and those born with trisomy 13 also have congenital heart disease.

We wish Wyatt and her brood the best as she continues to navigate this difficult stage of motherhood.
