On Monday, she revealed that her daughter, Eliza Adalynn, died on Father's Day.
Hudson and her fiancé, Chance Moore, welcomed Eliza back in 2018 and at just 10 months old, she was diagnosed with a "very rare and aggressive cancer known as a rhabdoid tumor," according to their GoFundMe page.
"My sweet baby girl. I don't know how we will go on without you. I know we promised you we would be brave, just like you. But we are broken," Hudson wrote on Instagram, "Even though we know you are no longer suffering or in pain or frustrated with what life had become. I thought that because we knew you were dying, that your death would not feel so sudden. But it did. I wasn't ready to see what I saw."
Hudson recounted, "I reached for your hand. But you were not there. You left last night. In a van that took you away. I wanted to run after you. But I couldn't. I have to accept this new reality... but I am not ready to let you go."
"I don't think I ever will be ready to move on," she added.
"I don't know where your soul went when it left your little body. I want to believe you are somewhere with my dad and my sister... and your sister... all loved ones you never met," the mom continues. "I want to believe you are all together. Dancing in meadows or swinging on trees or walking alongside a beach somewhere with ocean saltwater washing over your toes."
"I also want to believe your soul transferred into us, your Mamma and your Dadda. That you left your little body and gently latched onto our souls. That we are now intertwined for life. I want to believe you are still alive somewhere."
"I want to believe I will wake up from this nightmare and you will be there holding our hands. Telling us it was just a bad dream," she concluded.
On their TikTok page, the parents have documented Eliza's life by sharing her highs and lows to over 5 million followers.
In an Instagram post on Friday, Hudson cleared up social media rumors that Eliza had died, slamming those spreading lies while thanking those sending kind words.
"I wish I could unsee the ignorant, idiotic comments. I wish I could just ignore them. I do. Most of the time I have the strength. That doesn't mean I don't break down into tears before deleting said comments or blocking Eliza's 'followers,'" the mom explained.
She went on to add, "I didn't realize our family's suffering was just a playground for your ignorance. I didn't realize how disgusting humanity could really be. I didn't realize I would feel so much hate and anger towards people I have never met."
Hudson also thanked those who have been supportive during this difficult time...
"I want to thank and genuinely recognize the majority of Eliza's followers who have given our family space as we spend time with Eliza and with family. As we spend Time grieving before the inevitable loss that lingers and creeps closer every second."
Rest in Peace, Eliza. Our deepest thoughts and condolences go out to her family during this terrible time.
