‘I am constantly reading and hearing about terrible circumstances people are going through right now … I am just so sorry.

‘There is light at the end of the tunnel just a few more months and we will start to rebuild … together we will build a better community and appreciation … whenever the bad things happen they are there for a reason to make us better in the long run.

‘We r in this together, trying to get through this together just know there is light at the end of the tunnel … love u guys to bits and hope ur smiling right now … ur so strong and hopeful.’ 

In December, Caprice has revealed she has tried to explain surrogacy to her sons, yet they did not understand, after one was born via surrogate and one born by her.

The star who shares Jett and Jax with husband Ty Comfort, sought a surrogate after three failed rounds of failed IVF, yet three weeks after the surrogate confirmed the news, Caprice discovered she was pregnant herself.

While she has never revealed which of her boys she birthed, she revealed she has attempted to explain the situation, yet they did not understand.

Caprice also said that she is balancing her boys' work and her own career. She penned: 'Then of course gotta clean up and get tidy for afternoon zoom meetings can¿t stop working have bills to pay...'
