‘Siesta Key’ Star Madisson Hausburg Loses Her First Child with Husband Ish Soto Due to Stillbirth at 37 Weeks

Siesta Key star Madisson Hausburg is reflecting on the tragic loss of her son.

On Tuesday, Madisson revealed on social media that she suffered a stillbirth on December 12, giving birth to her and her husband Ish Soto‘s first child at 37 weeks into her pregnancy.

Madisson and Ish— who got married in October—received plenty of support from Madisson’s ‘Siesta Key’ cast mates and other MTV reality stars after announcing the news about their son, whom they named Elliot Angel Soto. When the couple announced that they were expecting, they stated that the baby’s due date was January 1, 2022.

“12/12/21 ? Ish and I lost our son, Elliot Angel Soto, and I delivered him stillborn at 37 weeks,” Madisson wrote. “Instead of leaving the hospital with our beautiful baby boy, I was wheeled out with just this memory box. It’s true what they say about there being no greater love than a mother’s love. And there is no deeper pain than losing a child.

“Everyday I wake up to the agonizing reality that I will never again get to hold him or kiss him in this lifetime. I am completely and utterly heartbroken. I love you, I miss you, my perfect little Elliot.”

Ish— who met Madisson when he was a producer on ‘Siesta Key’— also posted about Elliot’s birth on Instagram.

“On 12/12/21 Madisson and I lost our son Elliot Angel Soto,” he wrote. “This was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through. The pain of losing a child and the agony of watching my beautiful wife suffer, will haunt me for the rest of my days. I take comfort in knowing that one day we will be united and until then I will carry you in my heart. I love you, baby Eli, my little champion.”

Several MTV reality stars expressed their condolences to the grieving couple.

“I cannot put into words how sorry I am for you and Ish,” Floribama Shore star Nisla Prowant wrote in the post’s comment section. “I am sending you guys so much love and prayers. May God send a link of angels to wrap around you two during this tragic time.”

“I love you, Ish and Elliot,” ‘Siesta Key’ star Juliette Porter wrote.

“We love you Elliot Angel,” wrote Chloe Trautman.

  1. It happened exactly this way for me too. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy. The pain is real and not a day goes by that I don’t think of it. You just learn to live with it.

  2. I had a friend who this happened to around the same week of her first pregnancy, and I would not wish this on anyone…not even my worst enemy. The amount of trauma they must feel and the trauma that’s coming their way, I genuinely hope that they’re able to heal from this. So tragic.

  3. Maya from Selling Sunset just posted on her IG a few days ago that she had at stillbirth at 38 weeks. Both are so heartbreaking 🙁

  4. Rude and false. Thousands of pregnant people have protected themselves and their babies with the vaccine. I don’t believe for one minute that it is related to her stillbirth

  5. Stillbirths happen and have happened since LONG before Covid, regardless of vaccination status. How exactly is this relevant?

  6. I have no idea. What did she do exactly? Whatever it was it doesn’t make it any less heartbreaking that a baby died.

      1. Actually, his face is blurred out and his feet look somewhat deformed so he likely had some genetic trisomy.

  7. Just within the last month, I have known someone who had to have an emergency c section and whose baby was in NICU for weeks, one woman who had a stillborn daughter at full term, and a couple whose 7 year old just passed. I have never been so grateful for my healthy toddler. I don’t think I could handle burying my kid. I would never get over it. I wish them all the strength in the world.

  8. My first pregnancy was incredibly easy … almost too easy … until labor when we discovered my placenta was half the size it should have been and he was in fetal distress. Fast forward to an urgent c-section, we got him out safely.

    Thankfully, I was in the hospital being induced with a great medical team who caught what was happening quickly and moved fast. I, being curious, googled it one time and one time only where I learned that I could have lost him at any moment. Stories like these are so hard for me … it could have been me … and my heart is shattered for them.

  9. That is so heartbreaking, I can’t imagine the pain and grief of losing their little one. They will be in my prayers and thoughts.

    1. I work in a labor and delivery unit and it is tragic when a mama comes in saying she hasn’t felt the baby move in days. Usually we catch a heart tone and all is well but there are those instances where there is no sign of life when placed on the monitor. Those are the most heart breaking moments.
