Christine Tran Ferguson, a travel influencer, is speaking up about a tragic loss. On Thursday, the 37-year-old blogger behind Tour de Lust confirmed the death of her 15-month-old son Asher.
Though she did not provide any additional information regarding the infant’s death, she did write a lengthy Instagram post about the agony of losing her sole child with her husband, Ryan Ferguson.
“You’re 15 months today my little angel Mama and dada love you so much, you brought us so much joy, and made our family complete. I have never known how much love and happiness I could have until you came into our life. You are the smartest & happiest little boy I’ve ever known,” Tran Ferguson began her post.
“My heart is completely broken and shattered into a million pieces,” she stated later. I’ll never figure out why. Nothing makes sense, I’m still in shock, and all I want is to wake up from this nightmare and have you back in my arms.” she stated later.

“Why is this happening to us, why Asher?? You did not deserve any of this. Losing you is the hardest experience mommy and daddy has ever had to endure. Every day has been torture without you, this pain is unbearable. I still feel like you’re going to reappear but our home is so quiet and empty without you. Part of me has died with you. I’m so heartbroken, with no idea how to live a life without you.”
Tran Ferguson went on to say how much the small child was loved by his family and friends, writing, “Your room is empty, your stuff untouched. There’s no pain that can ever compare to losing a child & I can’t believe it happened to us.”
“I just want you back so badly, but you’re never coming home and it’s killing me,” the heartbroken mother went on. “We feel so lost without you and miss you so damn much. I prayed for the miracle, for YOU to be the miracle, for you to come back to us. My heart aches for you every second You will never be forgotten. We will take you everywhere we go. We love you so much my sweet boy, I pray I get to see you soon.”
Thanking fans and friends for reaching out, Tran Ferguson asked that she and her husband have “privacy during this difficult time as we’re still in shock and still have no answers to this unbearable nightmare.”
Earlier this month, the influential mom requested prayers and disclosed that her son was “fighting for his life in the ICU.”
“Please God, give us a miracle and save my sweet Asher,” she wrote. “We need you, we miss your laugh, your smile, we need you here with mama & dada.”

Tran Ferguson expressed her gratitude for her baby child following his difficult birth on April 20, 2022, nine years after the couple initially met.
“The doctor told us he had the cord around his neck so when the contractions happened it would tighten around his neck which led to his heart rate dropping,” she explained at the time. “I’m just so glad our amazing doctors delivered him safely. It was awhile before I got to finally hold him once I was in the recovery room. I couldn’t believe it, he’s FINALLY HERE in my arms! I feel so blessed and lucky to be your mother and understand what everyone has told me. There is no love like this.”
