(Scroll down for video) After many years of trying to get pregnant, a woman learned she has conceived after her husband died.

34-year-old Kirsty Kirchner of Australia, tried for seven years to have a baby with her husband.

She discovered that she was pregnant the day before her husband’s funeral.

Kirchner lost her husband Royce, in an accident after his car overturned and crashed into a tree just 10 minutes away from their home in Mount Archer, Queensland.

The 35-year-old man died instantly. “I’m pregnant, but this is not how we were supposed to be telling this story,” said Kirchner.

In another twist, the couple had canceled Royce’s life insurance policy two weeks before he was killed, and Kirsty had quit her job to concentrate on IVF.

The couple had just had their first IVF cycle five days before his death after saving three years for the procedure.

Kirsty Kirchner has been documenting her struggles to have a baby. She uploaded the videos to her YouTube channel ConceiveABaby.

Kirsty Kirchner continues to share her pain of losing her husband and best friend. Her difficult situation has inspired YouTube fans to donate over $16,000 to help with funeral costs and to pay off her mortgage so she can stay in her home.
