Bayleigh and Swaggy C, who got engaged during the Season 20 finale of "Big Brother," share heartbreaking news.
"Big Brother" star Bayleigh Dayton confirmed rumors she was pregnant with housemate's Swaggy C's child during filming, but miscarried in the jury house.
In a video posted to YouTube Friday afternoon, the reality stars -- who got engaged during the Season 20 finale -- put to rest speculation Swaggy only proposed because of the pregnancy by sharing a brutally honest update.
"During our time in the 'Big Brother' house, I did conceive a little baby, but unfortunately -- and we don't know why -- but I had a miscarriage in the jury house," she said in the video. "It's something that we're still figuring out. We actually just got a chance to talk to each other about it for the first time today."
"I would've been ecstatic if I were to have a baby," she added. "It would've been a blessing, and we were both really excited when we found out. And we were both really, really upset when we found out we lost it. [Swaggy] knew that I lost the baby before he decided to propose, and he still decided to propose. So the whole people saying, 'He's only proposing 'cause I'm pregnant' thing -- that's hurtful, so stop."
Swaggy defended his fiancée and his proposal in the video, saying he, too, was excited to be a father.
"People keep saying that I'm proposing because she's pregnant, and that's not the case at all," he said. "But going through that process and creating a child but also losing a child with her made me realize that this is my girl, and I'm going to marry her. I don't care that we've only been together for 23 days. I don't care. This is the one I wanna spend the rest of my life with."
"I did it because I love her, and the situation made us stronger," he said.
Bayleigh also addressed her freak out on co-star Tyler Crispen before her eviction, saying her emotions were running high after learning she was expecting.
"Also, just to clear the air, I love Tyler," Bayleigh added. "I don't think any ill will of Tyler. I know you guys saw a crazy, hysterical fight, but I actually found out the day before I was placed on the block by Angela that I was pregnant, so I was going through so many more emotions than you guys would've even known. I couldn't talk to anybody about it. The whole house didn't even know. So all my crazy, hysterical crying -- I guess I have an excuse for it! But it probably would've happened regardless because the house is crazy."
"She was going through a bundle of emotions, and the truth of the matter is, I'm beyond proud of her," Swaggy concluded. "She fought very hard under those circumstances, and it only makes her stronger. She's by far the strongest woman I've met, and I love her. I'm happy I proposed."
