Kelsey Grammer And Wife Kayte Walsh Announce Bittersweet Birth Of Baby Girl Faith
Kelsey Grammer's wife Kayte Walsh has given birth to a baby girl. The couple welcomed 6 lbs., 2 oz. Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer into the world early Friday morning.
"We are thrilled. Mother and child are in excellent health," the couple said in a statement to People magazine.
The couple announced in January that they were expecting twins, and revealed after Faith's birth that shortly after their twins announcement they lost the other baby, a boy.
"We were ecstatic earlier this year, when we announced that Kayte was carrying twins. Tragically we lost the little boy shortly thereafter," the statement reads. "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."
Walsh suffered a devastating miscarriage in October 2010 also.
The newborn is Grammer's fifth child. He shares two children with ex-wife Camille and has two other children - daughter Spencer Grammer from his first marriage to dance instructor Doreen Alderman and daughter Kandace Greer, who he shares with stylist Barrie Buckner.
Grammer and Waslh wed in February 2011.
