A month after losing his one-month-old daughter Victoria, Reggaeton star Wisin revealed what the last few weeks have been like for his family.
The 37-year-old and his wife, Yomaira Ortiz Feliciano, announced the news of their third child's death on Sept. 30 from a genetic disorder called Trisomy 13.
"I knew since my wife was four months pregnant that there were problems with the baby," the singer explained to Univision's El Gordo y La Flaca. "I'll confess that I thought about her having an abortion, and she very bravely told me, 'No, I'm no one to turn off the switch of life for anybody.'"

Although the couple and their two kids, Yelena, 9, and Dylan, 7, are still mourning the loss, a silver lining has emerged from the darkness.
"I've received messages from women that were in this situation and thought of having an abortion, but because of what we went through they decided not to and face this situation head on, no matter what happens," Wisin shared.
He added, "I never imagined having to go through losing a child, but I understand that I have fans and there are so many good people that in one way or another gave me that strength to keep growing and to keep walking."
