Jason Aldean’s pregnant wife Brittany Aldean shared Wednesday where she was during the Las Vegas massacre and how she feared she might never get to hold her baby.

“It’s been hard to process what happened the other night…still feel like I’m in a daze,” Aldean wrote in a message on Instagram. She praised the first responders who “completely put everyone else’s lives before theirs” Sunday night when Stephen Paddock opened fire on concert goers at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival while her husband was performing on stage. (RELATED: Jason Aldean Cancels Shows After Las Vegas Shooting)

“When the gunfire started I was not with Jason [Aldean], but with some friends in a tent closer to Mandalay,” she added. “As you can imagine my first instinct was to run to him and his was the same. As we laid behind equipment onstage with some of our road family, bullets flying past … all I could think was, ‘I never even got to hold my baby.'”

“We all made sure the others knew we loved them and then ran for cover where we stayed for the next couple of hours,” she continued. “(Not knowing if there were multiple shooters, where the bullets were coming from…Nothing.) We were the lucky ones. I can’t put into words the pain and heartache we feel for the ones who are no longer with us.”
