Jonathan Rhys Meyers and wife Mara Lane have buried their daughter beneath a tree at the front of their house.

The couple announced they had lost their second child, a sister for their son Wolf, nine months, in a lengthy post on Instagram last week (ends10Sep17), with Mara adding that the tragic loss had lead to her recovering alcoholic husband suffering a relapse.

In a new post on the social media site on Wednesday, Mara shared a video of the moment she and Jonathan were told their baby had lost her life as she underwent a sonogram. She also revealed in a caption accompanying the video the final resting place of the baby and that she and the Vikings star had named their baby Willow.

To the showering of love received, thank you from bottom of our hearts. I am so humbled and got teary-eyed several times at how beautiful humans can be and so sad but hopeful with the stories shared of depression and miscarriage and addictions. Thank you for sharing your soul and stories back, as this helps us feel that we are not alone. Anyone who knows me personally knows I would normally never share such personal sadness (only because in my head, I would not want to burden others and because I trust that in time God will heal me) but I was happy to come to my husband's defense. I could not sit back and see him attacked by Darkness publicly during such a tender time. Thank you for coming to ours. Please continue to always write or comment about your days no matter what I share as when I see it I will return the love back someway or it will be read by someone else who can too. I so wish that I could support you on all your walks and sad days so hopefully the posts I share will make you laugh or lighten your days or make you smile/brighten them somehow. This is not a highlights nor lowlights reel, but simply an in-the-middle to keep in contact. I was very vulnerable in my last post as well as being at an all-time low and on such days I sometimes will feel the need for support, so thank you for being so kind to me and being a safe place. We will try to be more transparent on our journey as I see it may be helpful for others as well as ourselves. We don’t have to carry the weight of the world ourselves. We can help lift one another up. I have been given peace and Baby Willow is now planted in the tree in front of our home that has weeping long branches and leaves so we can brush our faces in soft leaves in passing or we can see the baby dance with the wind in the branches as they sway. It is helping me process the situation … as Nature does. Thank you again Dr Stu for getting us through that as watching a sonogram not have a heartbeat is very surreal and beyond sad. Thank you Father God for supernatural peace. May you afford those who seek you the same peace and may we grow as humans and have more compassion for all humanity.

Mara added in her post that she and Jonathan had decided to be as “transparent” as possible as they navigate their grief, in the hope that their story may help others going through a similar situation.

“I so wish that I could support you on all your walks and sad days so hopefully the posts I share will make you laugh or lighten your days or make you smile/brighten them somehow,” she continued. “This is not a highlights nor lowlights reel, but simply an in-the-middle to keep in contact.
