Olympic skier Bode Miller and his wife, Morgan Beck, went through the unimaginable on June 9, when their 19-month-old daughter fell into a neighbor’s pool.

As Dearly previously reported, the toddler drowned within seconds of falling into the pool, causing the devastated parents to lose little Emeline Grier in “the blink of an eye.” She was hospitalized and passed away on June 10.

Morgan was pregnant with a baby boy at the time, and told “Today” that she couldn’t imagine welcoming him during such a devastating time:

“How am I supposed to bring a new baby into this world, after just losing my baby?… Emmy was so excited to be a big sister. She walked around all the time with her baby [doll], and now we get to love that baby not just for ourselves, but for Emmy.”

On Friday, the mourning parents welcomed their baby, just four months after losing Emmy, they confirmed to People.

The baby boy, whose name has not been revealed, was born on October 5 at 1:34 p.m. Lindsey Meehleis, the couple’s midwife, said the successful birth happened in the couple’s home.

She told “Today” that it was an emotional experience for the family:

“Exactly one month before Emmy’s second birthday… the sun rose and they knew this day would be different. An overwhelming feeling of joy started to fill a valley of deep grief and sadness.”

Meehleis continued:

“Morgan’s fingers grasped onto their son, who filled such empty arms. While nothing will ever replace the feeling of aching arms to hold Emmy again, this baby provided something new this day: joy, inspiration and hope.”

Morgan and Bode first announced their pregnancy in April, about two months before they tragically lost their toddler.

The family have not publicly spoken out about the birth of their new bundle of joy.
