Kelsey Grammer and his wife Kayte Walsh have welcomed their first child together amidst tragedy.
The 57-year-old actor and Kayte were expecting fraternal twins.
Kayte, 31, delivered her baby daughter Faith Evangeline Elisa at one o'clock in the morning on Friday July 13. Faith was a weighed in at a healthy 6 lbs., 2 oz.
"We are thrilled," the couple told People magazine in a statement.
"Mother and child are in excellent health."
Faith's baby brother didn't make it and died months ago.
"We were ecstatic earlier this year, when we announced that Kayte was carrying twins. Tragically we lost the little boy shortly thereafter," they wrote.
"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."
