'Boss' Star Kelsey Grammer Welcomes Daughter With Wife Kayte
It’s a girl for Kelsey Grammer and his wife Kayte.
The couple weclomed a daughter, Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer, at 1 a.m. Friday, July 13 in Los Angeles. She weighed in at 6 lbs., 2 oz.
“We are thrilled,” the couple told PEOPLE. “Mother and child are in excellent health.”
But the news was still bittersweet for the couple.
In the statement, the couple revealed that their daughter’s twin brother did not make it to full term.
“We were ecstatic earlier this year when we announced that Kayte was carrying twins. Tragically, we lost the little boy shortly thereafter,” the couple revealed.
“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."
The couple married in February of 2011. This is their first child together.
They previously lost a child in the fall of 2010.
