Wife of fallen soldier shares stunning pregnancy pictures


The wife of a fallen soldier from Fort Bragg, North Carolina who was just six weeks pregnant when she found out her husband had been killed by a suicide bomber, has shared stunning photographs of her pregnancy.

Britt Harris received the tragic news last August that U.S. Army Spc. Christopher Harris, 25, has been killed by a suicide bomber while serving in Afghanistan.
She said that her husband left her a ‘little miracle’. His fellow soldiers revealed to her that she would be giving birth to a baby girl as they performed a gender reveal in honor of their fallen comrade.

Brittany Harris lost her husband, Army Specialist Chris Harris, in August of 2017, just months after the couple said, “I Do” riverside in Asheville.
Just days before Chris’ death, he learned he would become a father.
To help celebrate the new life, several Fort Bragg soldiers in Afghanistan helped give the fallen hero a memory he would never have but surely deserved – a special gender reveal.
The couple’s daughter is expected to enter the world on March 24.
Harris said that she plans to name her daughter Christian Michelle for her father, Christopher Michael.
“Everything I do, I do it to preserve Chris’ memory and to show Christian how special she is,” Harris said. “I’m just the only one that can speak for them both right now. I do everything I can to make sure they both get the recognition they deserve. Him for sacrificing his life for his country and her for being the legacy of a hero.”


Determined to capture her pregnancy in all its glory, Britt decided to have a photo shoot that involved her dressing in a striking red dress while wandering among nature in the North Carolina countryside.

The pictures reveal a deep yearning while displaying a remarkable positivity that knowing that out of such terrible heartache, a new life is set to emerge.

Britt can be seen holding and stroking her baby bump as she thinks about the life she shared with her husband.

Incredibly, she has proved herself to be immensely strong – conveyed by her decision to wear scarlet while standing alongside the French Broad River in Asheville.

Britt is due to give birth on March 24. She plans to name her daughter Christian Michelle for her late father, Christopher Michael.

She said her husband’s fellow the soldiers have been there for her every step of the way.

When her husband was alive, his fellow platoon even performed a gender reveal celebration for him, showering him in pink confetti.

‘They have been phenomenal and done everything they can to watch over me even from a distance,’ she told WFMY.

Britt says she now has a mission of her own to make sure her ‘little miracle princess’ grows up knowing all about her dad. ‘I want her to know that she’s her dad’s legacy,’ she said.
