Courtney Stodden Shaves Head In Symbolic Tribute
The 21-year-old reality star - who is married to The Green Mile actor Doug Hutchison - has shorn off her beautiful blonde locks and documented the act, which she carried out in tribute to the baby she miscarried last month.
Taking to her Instagram account earlier today, she posted a video in which she is close to tears as she says: “Hi everyone, as you all know I recently suffered a miscarriage and it’s had a huge impact on me emotionally.
"I’ve been thinking and I have decided that I want to give back to my angel with a symbolic gesture and that to me is shaving my hair off because I want to step into this new chapter into my life fresh and new. So I wanted to share it with you because you’re a huge support system for me and I love you so much. So thank you so much. Here we go.”
Barely dressed - in a leopard print string bikini, matching head band and sporting her signature pout - Courtney sipped champagne and celebrated her new style in a series of pictures on Instagram.
The star married Doug, 56, when she was 16 years of age and the couple announced they were starting a family back in May.
Speaking shortly after she lost the baby, Courtney shared on social media: “Never will I have the fortune to look into your precious eyes, I wonder what color they would have been. Probably blue like mine - like your daddy’s too. I’ll never get over the painful fact that I would be able to cradle you in my arms. I’ll never be able to rest my cheek on yours and tell you how much I love you.
She added: "I’ll never get over this … losing you. I hope you know how much I miss you growing inside of my tummy. I hope that you know I wanted to give you life… a beautiful life - and desired so much to watch you grow into an incredible human being.”
