Kelsey Grammer and his wife, Kayte, welcomed a baby girl, Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer, early this morning, the couple said in a statement released to EW.
This is the first child for the couple, who were married in February 2011. Grammer has four children from previous relationships.
Their full statement is below:
“Early this morning Kayte gave birth to Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer. We are thrilled. She was 6 lbs. 2oz. when she entered the world at 1am on the 13th of July in the year 2012. Mother and child are in excellent health.
We were ecstatic earlier this year, when we announced that Kayte was carrying twins. Tragically we lost the little boy shortly thereafter. 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.”
