The couple suffered a miscarriage in July, publicly expressing their grief over the loss of their unborn son.
But on Tuesday, they shared a sweet pic of Otis’ bare baby bump with a beautiful rainbow and small footprints drawn on her stomach. Children born after a miscarriage are commonly referred to as “rainbow babies.”

"Since we lost our son I've felt so alone and sad. It's been one of the worst experiences in my life,” Otis told ET in October. “My biggest fear is that my sweet little baby will just be forgotten and it will be like he never even existed. I wanted to share Johnny so as he looks down from Heaven he'll know how loved, cherished, and important he still is to his mommy and daddy."
