The news comes days after Meyers was escorted at the Dublin Airport by the security for being too intoxicated to board a flight to Vancouver,

Mara Jane, the wife of the Irish actor revealed that her husband has not taken the news too well prompting him to turn to alcohol again since he had a history with alcohol addiction in the past and has spent time in rehab to address his problems.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the American actress revealed the devastating news and how they were working together to overcome their loss.

Posting a picture of a little girl and a lion, Jane captioned," With much sadness, we open our hearts to share that J and I lost our second child, who was baking in the oven."

She continued, "Child was very very much wanted (right now especially by J, so he took the news particularly not so well) and we are still working with coping skills over here... when life throws us curve balls such as these."

She went on to admit about her husband's past alcohol addiction and also highlighted how depression is a "real concern."

The mother of one further revealed that, "He has been able to turn any ugliness and hurt in his life into art and is the strongest person I know."

Expressing her admiration for her husband at this tough time, she said, "I do not know anyone who has been through what he has been through and reached his level of successes."

And adding, "To some others, my husband is an Irishman who battles alcoholism and depression and drank between jobs to try to cope with the sadness of this news. I am trying to and still learning/adjusting to living with the public, like one would as a concerned mother-in-law."

She also said that whoever took the picture of her husband in the airport was "slightly wrong" in doing so but she said "its ok" after what it has been done.

Saying that, "Maybe you have/had a family to feed and need/needed money? I don't know. We forgive you."

She affirmed that her husband is recovering for his addiction, adding, "He is safe and with his sober living companion and bodyguard to get into a detox closer to home since he was denied hospital help twice in Ireland because of an already two month wait period."

At the end of the post she sent her love to those in the US, India and Mexico coping with natural disasters.

"We are both so sensitive and the past couple of weeks have been so ouch in our hearts for all humans and animals affected. With Love, M&J," she added.

Jane and Meyers tied the knot in 2016 and on the same year of December they welcomed their first child, a son named Wolf.

Meyers rose to fame after 2002's hit 'Bend It Like Beckham' and later went on to receive his first major award 'Golden Globe' for his portrayal of Elvis Presley in the mini-series 'Elvis.'
