Kelsey Grammer and his wife Kayte are the parents of a new baby girl.
Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer was born at 1 a.m. Friday, July 13, in Los Angeles, weighing in at 6 lbs., 2 oz.
“We are thrilled. Mother and child are in excellent health,” the Grammers said in a statement, according to People.
The joyous occasion is bittersweet for the couple, however.
Kelsey, 57, and Kayte, 31, who married in February 2011, had previously announced that they were expecting twins, but now reveal that Katye lost one of the babies early in the pregnancy.
“We were ecstatic earlier this year, when we announced that Kayte was carrying twins. Tragically we lost the little boy shortly thereafter,” the couple said in the statement.
“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,” the statement continued. “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.”
Grammer has four other children from previous relationships.
The “Frasier” star just wrapped filming in Chicago on Season 2 of his current TV series, “Boss,” on Starz.
