Emily Fernandez's newborn son

Little Women: Atlanta’s Emily Fernandez’s Newborn Son Has Passed Away

My heart is really aching for Little Women: Atlanta star Emily Fernandez. Watching her deal with her newborn’s son’s health problems on the show made me hopeful that things would turn around soon.

Sadly, that is not the case. Emily’s baby boy passed away on Friday, August 5, 2016 after a tough battle that included seizures and trouble breathing.


JJ passed away in the hospital under doctors’ care. JJ’s specific health problems are not known and I’m not sure what will be included on the show since the season is currently airing, but it is all very heartbreaking.

Emily asked for prayers for her son in several social media posts recently. I hope that all of her fans, friends, and family continue to provide love and support during such a difficult time. Emily announced the news on Instgram.


Emily shared several heartbreaking photos and messages since JJ passed. Emily wrote, “I will never be the same after today,” adding, “You were a dream come true. I will live my ife for you every day. Mommy and Daddy will never forget you. God makes no mistakes but this sure is a hard faith to accept. We will never understand why you were called to Heaven so soon. The three months we got was far from enough time. RIP Lontel Jahnar Johnson Jr.” You can see the photos on Emily’s Instagram page if you wish.

Our deepest condolences go out to Emily, Lontel, and Eva.
