Travel influencer Christine Tran Ferguson reveals son’s death at age 15 months

Travel influencer Christine Tran Ferguson revealed Thursday that her son, Asher, had lost his battle with a mystery illness.
The child was just 15 months old.

“I have never known how much love and happiness I could have until you came into our life,” Tran Ferguson wrote in an Instagram post marking her only child’s 15-month birthday on Thursday. “You are the smartest & happiest little boy I’ve ever known.”

The rest of the post was a montage of photos and videos of a smiling, bouncy toddler that belied the devastating news.

“You were going to do amazing things and change the world, I just know it,” Tran Ferguson continued.

“I miss your little laughs, the way you stick out your tongue when you giggled, the way you picked up your food with your tiny chubby fingers, your little dance moves, how you clapped your hands, your little feet kicking a ball, the way you grab the hockey or golf sticks for dada, you just always knew how to make everyone smile.”

Tran Ferguson and her husband, Ryan Ferguson, welcomed Asher into the world on April 20, 2022, the nine-year anniversary of when the couple met. The travel blogger, whose Tour de Lust website provides detailed itineraries to introduce people to various cities, is also active on TikTok, where she has about 274,000 followers.

The popular travel guru had told her 522,000 Instagram followers earlier this month that her son was “fighting for his life in the ICU” without saying what was wrong.

“Please God, give us a miracle and save my sweet Asher,” she wrote, followed by prayer emojis and including a photo of her hand holding his amid a mass of tubing. “We need you, we miss your laugh, your smile, we need you here with mama & dada. Please help us pray for our precious Asher who is fighting for his life in the ICU.”

On Thursday, her pain flowed through her Instagram account and into the hearts of her followers.

“My heart is utterly broken and shattered into a million pieces,” Tran Ferguson wrote. “I will never understand why. Nothing makes sense, I’m still in shock, I just want to wake up from this unimaginable nightmare and have you back in my arms.”
