On Monday, NFL player Andrew Quarless emotionally spoke with reporters about the passing of his daughter. Unfortunately, the football star's baby girl tragically passed away during childbirth last week.
The newborn was the second child for Quarless and his girlfriend Rosie Sierra — who also have 5-year-old, Aiden. Andrew choked back tears as he revealed that his son was "really looking forward to being a big brother."
The 22-year-old was buried next to her mom, Whitney Houston, on Monday in New Jersey at Fairview Cemetery alongside Whitney's father John Russell Houston.
The private ceremony's procession began at Whigham Funeral Home and arrived at the cemetery around 1 p.m. EST. The funeral home was the same one the family used during Whitney's burial, as well.
Nearby roads were blocked off so the Houstons and the Browns could grieve privately.
We can't imagine what Bobby Brown must be feeling right now. No one ever wants to outlive their child. Our hearts go out to all of Bobbi Kristina's friends, family, and loved ones, as well as everyone affected during this terrible tragedy.

This is disgusting.
Bobbi Kristina was laid to rest on Saturday, and we wish we could say the ceremony was drama-free, but it wasn't. BK's aunt — and Bobby Brown's sister — Leolah Brown was kicked out of the funeral after shouting at Pat Houston.
We were hoping that was going to be the only drama surrounding the sad services, but now we're learning that someone snapped a shot of the 22-year-old's body in a casket during her wake on Friday.
The photo has also been sold to a media outlet for an outrageous price. Sources say that after an intense bidding war, the victor shelled out over
Tragedy On A Baseball Field As A Nine-Year-Old Dies After Being Accidentally Struck In The Head With A Bat
This is so sad.
A nine-year-old baseball lover, Kaiser Carlile, was working as a bat boy for his local baseball team in Kansas when the worst kind of tragedy struck this past weekend.
Kaiser was running to get a bat between pitches for his beloved Liberal Bee Jays when the next batter coming to the plate didn't see him, and accidentally hit him in the head with a bat during a warmup swing.
Carlile was immediately attended to — the home plate umpire coincidentally had EMS training — and was later rushed to the hospital, but it wasn't meant to be, and the nine-year-old passed away on Sunday night.
A witness to the event, Malachi Lingg, told reporters what happened:
Shane Redway — a Canadian rapper and close friend of Drake's — was killed early Saturday morning in a car crash. He was just 26 years old.
Redway and two others were killed when their car lost control, struck a guardrail and burst into flames. The crash occurred around 4am outside Pearson International Airport in Toronto. It's unclear who was behind the wheel. Police are investigating the crash.
Drake took to Instagram to remember Redway, posting two different tributes.
Well… it's over.
Bobbi Kristina's funeral is now finished and despite some drama, mourners have paid their last respects to the young woman taken far too soon — including Whitney Houston, who was able to give her daughter one final, special goodbye.
According to sources, during the ceremony, members of both the Brown and Houston families spoke, as well as family friend Tyler Perry. And, Whitney's Jesus Loves Me was the final song played as the funeral came to a close.
Apparently, Bobby Brown — though not listed as a speaker for the event — also delivered a special message to Bobbi Kristina, writing in the program:
She may be funny, but she can also get things done — especially when it really counts.
Only Schumer is in a unique position to do something about it as a public figure — and it appears that is just what she's going to do!
A woman named Sarah Clements — whose mom survived the terrifying Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012 — published a blog post on Friday asking Schumer to speak out on gun violence and demand legislative change after the shootings in Louisiana.
On Saturday morning, Schumer responded on Twitter:
