twin boys

When Bode and Morgan Miller lost their daughter Emeline Grier in an accidental drowning incident, Morgan was pregnant with a son.

As Dearly previously reported, four months after Emeline’s unexpected passing, her baby brother, Easton Vaughn Rek Miller, was born.

Morgan said of caring for her new son so soon after losing her daughter:

“If there’s one thing that can kind of help to heal and fill that spot in your heart, it’s a baby. And he’s a special one. Besides the lack of sleep, it’s been a really nice process to be able to go through.”

Now, one year and two months after Emeline’s death, Morgan and Bode took to social media to make a major announcement. The couple is pregnant…with twins.

Losing a child while pregnant was the most confusing experience of my life. The conflict of emotions from what was pure joy turned to guilt and terror overnight. How could I love this baby the way I loved Emmy? Was it okay to love this baby the way I loved Emmy? It felt like by loving my son, I was trying to replace her. The fear of birthing my son and what that meant …..a monumental step forward….proof that time continued without her when all I wanted was for time to stop. But let me say this….I couldn’t have been more wrong. Easton provided us an even closer bond to his sister. The moment I heard his cry, something sparked back alive in my soul. Hope. Love. I’m not sure. But in that moment, I knew I was Mom and my kids deserved the world from me. Everything was going to be okay. My joy and grief could coexist. Now, I can actually say with joy and excitement that we are expecting identical twin boys. From the day I met my husband, he has always said he wanted identical twin boys born on his birthday. We are due on the lucky day/angel number of 11/11 which is not far off from @millerbode Birthday of 10/12. From the beginning of this pregnancy, we knew Emmy had her hands in this miracle somehow.

The retired athlete said it has always been a dream of Bode’s to have identical twin boys:

From the day I met my husband, he has always said he wanted identical twin boys born on his birthday. We are due on the lucky day/angel number of 11/11 which is not far off from [Bode’s]birthday of 10/12. From the beginning of this pregnancy, we knew Emmy had her hands in this miracle somehow.

Thousands of Morgan’s followers offered their congratulations to the couple. And many agreed that grief and love can co-exist.

The couple also announced that they will be moving from Southern California to Big Sky, Montana before the arrival of their twins.

But no matter where they are in the world, Bode and Morgan will continue to keep Emeline’s memory alive through stressing the importance of swim lessons. As well as pool safety to prevent other families from being affected by accidental drownings.

Congratulations to the Bode, Morgan, and their happily growing family.
