During a 2010 appearance on The View, Joe Nichols revealed to the cast and audience that he and wife Heather were undergoing fertility treatments in an effort to have a baby. Two years later, the happy new parents once again visited the show to discuss the long, difficult and often heartbreaking path to the delivery of their healthy baby girl, Dylan River Nichols. The couple revealed they had suffered five miscarriages, and shared their story in an effort to help other women who may be experiencing similar challenges.
Nichols also performed a song special to the couple, “That Would Be Her.” He sang it to Heather at their wedding, and Heather played the song throughout the lengthy and frequent treatments during her pregnancy. Additionally a line from the song inspired their daughter’s middle name. The song can be found on Nichols’ award winning debut CD, titled Man With A Memory.
In addition to their appearance on The View, Heather has launched a blog designed to share the information she accumulated during her research into treatments and her experiences throughout this pregnancy. Please visit www.morethananicholsworth.com for more information.
