(NEW YORK) — Kelsey Grammer and his wife Kayte welcomed their first child together, a healthy baby girl, early Friday morning in Los Angeles, and also revealed they lost an unborn son. The couple named their new daughter Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer.
“We are thrilled,” the couple said in a statement to ABC News. “We were ecstatic earlier this year when we announced that Kayte was carrying twins. Tragically we lost the little boy shortly thereafter.”
“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 couple stated. “A glorious birth with a lingering sadness is ours today.”
Kelsey wed Kayte, his fourth wife, in February, 2011. The two renewed their vows in Las Vegas last month.
