Kelsey Grammer and his wife Kayte Walsh welcomed baby girl Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer at 1 am Friday the 13th in Los Angeles. The sweet little pumpkin weighed in at 6 pounds and two ounces.
The couple told People magazine, “We are thrilled. Mother and child are in excellent health.”
And that is all fine and dandy but you know damn well they were hoping that the baby came a couple hours earlier. Being born on Friday the 13th can be a traumatic ordeal for some, you know.
Despite the joy that they are feeling, there is a bit of sadness surrounding the birth of their baby. In a statement, the couple reveal, “We were ecstatic earlier this year, when we announced that Kayte was carrying twins. Tragically we lost the little boy shortly thereafter. 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.”
They went on to add, “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 couple lost a child in the fall of 2012 as well.
Definitely a bittersweet time for Kelsey and Kayte!
