Originally posted 08/22/2016 05:30PM

Little Women: Atlanta's Emily Fernandez is grieving the loss of her infant son, who died Aug. 5 at the age of 3 months.

Fernandez, who stars on the unscripted Lifetime series, exclusively opened up to PEOPLE about the death of her "second born" – Lontel Jahnar Johnson Jr. (JJ) – who experienced multiple health complications before and after he was born, including seizures and blood around his brain.

"To say the last three months have been the most difficult of my life is the understatement of the century. Lontel Jahnar Johnson Jr. (JJ), my second born, was a prayer answered. He was born on April 27, 2016, and he was the perfect tiny package. My baby was having seizures in utero and doctors believe there was a problem with the placenta. Little people pregnancies are high risk and being pregnant with a little person is even more dangerous. JJ wasn't receiving enough oxygen and he was born with blood around his brain," Fernandez said.
