Well on their way to expanding their family, Kelsey Grammer and wife Kayte welcomed precious little bundle of joy Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer on Friday (July 13).

Weighing in at a healthy 6 pounds and 2 ounces, baby Faith made her way into the world around 1:00 AM in Los Angeles.

In a statement to the press the Grammers said they were "thrilled" for their new addition, but also acknowledged the difficult time they endured throughout the pregnancy.

While Kelsey and Kayte had previously announced they were expecting twins, the pair, who lost eventually lost one son, told press, “This was not something we cared to make known publicly at the time,” say the Grammers in their statement on Friday.

“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 added, “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.”
