As you may have heard, back in December Midland was forced to postpone their tour due to complications following the birth of singer Mark Wystrach’s daughter. Well, now Mark is opening up about exactly what happened.
The singer shares that when daughter Sundance “Sunny” Leon, was born they “had a really scary, unexpected, emergency C-section that we had a fetal to maternal hemorrhage, and we lost the baby’s heartbeat and my wife, Tyler’s, vitals were crashing.”
An emotional Mark admits the whole thing “scared” him, sharing, “When you almost lose your wife and your kid and then you don’t…it kinda rearranges your priorities and makes you grow up a bunch and kind of checks your ego back.”
Mark says in the end they got really “lucky,” although Tyler had to be in the hospital for over a week. He adds that an emergency like that, “teaches you the greatest lesson, that this life is a gift and you can’t take it for granted.”
