Today marks a joyous day for the Grammer household. Kelsey Grammer and his wife Kayte welcomed a healthy baby girl into the world at 1 a.m. this morning in Lost Angeles, People magazine reports. The baby weighed in at 6 lbs., 2 oz. and was given the surprisingly normal (yet still beautiful) name: Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer. “We are thrilled,” the couple remarks in a statement. “Mother and child are in excellent health.”
However, the arrival of their daughter was also a little bittersweet since it was originally supposed to be twins. “We were ecstatic earlier this year, when we announced that Kayte was carrying twins. Tragically we lost the little boy shortly thereafter,” Grammer, 57, and Kayte, 31, explain. “This was not something we cared to make known publicly at the time. It was unspeakably painful and we know that people will understand our desire to keep the news private then, as we know they will respect our privacy in this matter now.”
This news must have been doubly hard for the married pair, who previously lost a child in the fall of 2010. But they remain completely grateful for all that they have. “A glorious birth with a lingering sadness is ours today. We choose to celebrate the life that has been given us. We proudly introduce our Faith to the world today looking forward to the days ahead and the children yet to come.”
The Grammers — who wed in February 2011 and renewed their vows in June – celebrated their baby shower in Chicago, where the Boss star recently wrapped filming the show’s second season.
A huge congratulations to the Grammer clan on their newest addition!
