At the time of the pregnancy announcement, Barrett had recently returned to the field after an Achilles injury sidelined him. Despite his frustration over the injury, the linebacker told ESPN it was a blessing in disguise because it gave him more time with Arrayah before her tragic death.

"This is a daily battle. Tough battle," Barrett told the outlet on July 31 as he reflected on the loss of his child. "Today I felt it heavier today than I did the last couple days."

"Her smile — I just miss her so much. Her energy, just like putting her to bed every night, reading stories," he added. "She just brought so much brightness and wholeness and completeness to our lives."
