Celebrity lifestyle influencer Laura Merritt Walker has made a heartbreaking announcement that her 3-year-old son died in a “tragic accident” last week.

“We are absolutely heartbroken to announce that we lost our precious Callahan in a tragic accident last week,” the mother and husband, David Walker, of Texas, wrote on Instagram about their youngest son.

The couple posted a photo of themselves with Callahan from a family photo shoot, a photo of the parents holding the boy’s hand in his hospital bed, and a video of the blond-haired child reading a book in bed.

“He has been a blessing and brought so much joy to our entire family,” they wrote in the joint post.

“Cal Bear was absolutely loved by his big brothers and loved them beyond measure. We as parents are absolutely devastated at the loss of our little boy,” the post reads.

The couple said they took solace in “knowing he is held in the arms of Jesus” and asked for prayers “during this impossible time.”

Details of the boy’s death are unknown, but police in the town of Frisco told People magazine that firefighters responded to a drowning call involving a child last week.

Callahan celebrated his third birthday in October, according to a social media post.

The post included video clips of the little boy in pajamas playing with giant balloon No. 3.

Laura Taylor, who has more than 233,000 followers on Instagram, runs a lifestyle blog with her sister Christy Merritt Taylor.

She and her husband are also parents to sons Chamberlain, 7, and Beckham, 10, according to People.

“All the moms on the internet giving you a huge hug,” Katherine Belknap and Natalie Telfer, who host the Cat & Nat podcast, commented on the post. “There is nothing we can say to stop the pain. We are just so sorry.”

“I’m so sorry, there are no words at all. I pray that the Lord gives you peace and comfort beyond all understanding,” Bachelor Nation’s Raven Gates wrote in response.

Taylor has since launched the Callahan Walker Foundation in their son’s name to “serve and love families walking through the impossible with their children.”
