Big Brother spouses-to-be Bayleigh Dayton and Chris "Swaggy C" Williams took to Instagram to thank their former fellow houseguests for all their support after the couple suffered a miscarriage while on the show.

Let me first start by saying that I was SO ecstatic to be a mom! I understand to most the circumstances were not ideal. @swaggyctv and I did not make the best decision by being intimate so publicly but we were in our own world and completely forgot about everyone else when we were together. I just wanted to share and be transparent about my experience @bbangierockstar was my ROCK in the jury house. The B.B. team was amazing and discrete. @hbroucher, @fessyfitness and @scottie_salton held me down and were my family when I couldn’t speak to my family and I love you guys forever for that. To anyone that has ever lost a child, I AM SO SORRY!! I wouldn’t wish that pain on my worst enemy. ❤️ Full video in my bio. Also thank you to my family and friends for holding me down while I was in the house. Couldn’t live this life without y’all.
In a video shared to their social media channels, the couple sat side-by-side while Dayton explained she "conceived a little baby" after getting intimate with Swaggy while inside the Big Brother house.
"Unfortunately, and we don't know why, but I suffered a miscarriage while inside the jury house," Dayton explained while Swaggy remained mostly silent.
In the caption of the post, Dayton thanked her co-stars Angie "Rockstar" Lantry, Haleigh Broucher, Faysal Shafaat, and Scottie Slaton for their support.
"[Lantry] was my ROCK in the jury house. The B.B. team was amazing and discrete," Dayton wrote. "[Broucher], [Shafaat] and @[Salton] held me down and were my family when I couldn't speak to my family and I love you guys forever for that."
Dayton was evicted from the Big Brother house a week after Swaggy, but was the first evicted houseguest to make it to the jury house — meaning she spent the rest of the summer inside the jury house, still sequestered from the outside world, which Swaggy was living in following his eviction early on in the game.
"I wanna thank the HIVE for taking care of my Fiancé in the jury house during her hospital visits, and I wanna thank both of our families for keeping me sane afterwards. Also, a thanks to CBS for making sure she was taken care of properly," Swaggy wrote on Instagram.
Elsewhere in the post, he wrote, "We know the rumors going around. Bayleigh and I were so excited to be parents. 6 weeks pregnant. Unfortunately, circumstances happen and we had a miscarriage."
The two revealed the news just days after the season finale of Big Brother 20. During the live finale, Swaggy and Dayton were reunited for the first time since he was evicted earlier this summer, and he proposed.
"I don't really care about any other girl, I want you and only you. I don't know what the future holds but I want you in it," Swaggy told Dayton, pulling out a ring.
Big Brother is currently between seasons, but all past seasons are available to stream on CBS All Access. Celebrity Big Brother returns for its second season this winter.
