According to Tiny’s mom Dianne Cottle, Tiny had had a difficult pregnancy and on Wednesday (3/21), Tiny knew something was wrong. Her pediatrician confirmed it: the baby girl she and Tip wanted so badly had no heartbeat. Tiny was six months along in her pregnancy.
Tiny was admitted to Northside hospital that Wednesday, and on Thursday, following a medically induced labor, Tiny delivered a stillborn baby girl in her room surrounded by Tip and family and friends. Tip named his baby girl Llayah Amour and dressed her in a tiny white dress. Then Tiny, her daughter Zonnique, and family and friends took turns holding the baby for hours. “The baby was beautiful,” said Dianne. “She looked just like Tip.”
