Kelsey and Kayte’s little girl Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer was born this morning, according to People. Both mother and baby are said to be in “excellent health.” Faith is Kelsey’s fifth child; he has two children with Camille and two children from other relationships.
Sadly, it’s not all happy news for the couple, who were married in February 2011, just weeks after his divorce from Camille was finalized. The couple originally expected fraternal twins, but they tragically lost the boy.
In a joint statement, the couple explained, “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.”
“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,” they said.
Both congratulations and condolences are in order for the Grammer family today.
