Though Christine has not shared a cause of death, she wrote in a July 3 post that her baby boy was "fighting for his life in the ICU." Two weeks later, on what would have been Asher's 15-month birthday, Christine called his passing an "unimaginable nightmare."

"Everyday has been torture without you, this pain is unbearable," said Christine, who often shared pictures of her family life with Asher. "I still feel like you're going to reappear but our home is so quiet and empty without you. Part of me has died with you. I'm so heartbroken, with no idea how to live a life without you."


Following the devastating news, her influencer community rallied around her, including Melissa Celestine Koh, who lost her 21-month-old son, also named Asher, in April.

"The pain of losing a child is absolutely unbearable and it pains me so much to see another parent going through what I did," Melissa wrote in the comments. "This is so so cruel and there are absolutely no words to make things better. Not even time."
