Jason Aldean offers support after country singer, ‘Vikings’ star Alexander Ludwig details fertility struggles


Canadian actor and country singer-songwriter Alexander Ludwig, who starred in Vikings and Hunger Games, is opening up about a personal family struggle.

Earlier this month, he and his wife, Lauren, talked about their difficult journey to becoming parents, sharing that they recently suffered their third miscarriage. Alexander reposted his wife’s statement, in which she explains that she wanted to share because “we all need to start talking about the truth more.” She also describes how her experience has taught her that “if more of us talked about these things, maybe we would feel less alone and at fault.”

In his repost, Alexander praised his wife’s strength and told her that “your resilience through this just is one more of the countless reasons I love you.”

The Ludwig family’s story struck a chord with many of their followers who have been through similar challenges, including Jason Aldean, who jumped into the comments to offer his support.

“Britt and I went through a similar situation. Things will happen when it’s time,” Jason wrote, also offering his condolences. “U guys are gonna be great parents and can’t wait to meet that kid who will no doubt be a blessing. Y’all hang in there buddy. Thinking about y’all.”

Jason and his wife, Brittany Aldean, have been open about their own fertility struggles due to Brittany’s endometriosis. They are now parents to two children together, Memphis and Navy, who were both conceived through in vitro fertilization.

In music news, Alexander is gearing up for the release of his first full-length album, Highway 99, this August.
