On Monday, she shared an emotional remembrance post in honor of her unborn daughter Scarlett. In a series of photos, Teefey looked back on her pregnancy and shared a throwback photo where Teefey is holding a baby Gomez. "Thank you to all the fans who honored our Scarlett yesterday. Dec 17th will never be the same, but we decide to celebrate her by writing her letters on red balloons and releasing them," she wrote. Dec. 17 will also stay in Teefey's memory for another, more positive reason: It is now the same day in which Teefey and Gomez wrapped filming of season 2 of 13 Reasons Why, where they both serve as executive producers.
