Morgan and Bode Miller Welcomed Sixth Child, a Baby Girl: “Family Means Everything to Us”
Former Olympic skier Bode Miller and his wife, Morgan, have expanded their family! In a sweet Instagram post on Dec. 6, Morgan announced their sixth child’s arrival: “She’s here!” They first revealed they were expecting back in May with a message that they “were excited to share some very big news” alongside a photo of the couple with both their hands on her growing belly.
“Family means everything to us and we are so excited that ours continues to grow,” she wrote. On May 24, the couple shared with Today that baby number eight, whom they affectionately dubbed “Baby Miller Ocho” is a girl. “Oh my gosh, we are so excited,” Morgan said.
The Millers have had all of their shared five children together in close succession (and Bode’s two kids from previous relationships aren’t that far off in age from their younger siblings). Sadly, the Millers lost one of their children, 19-month-old Emeline, in a tragic drowning accident on June 10, 2018, but have since welcomed a son Morgan was pregnant with at the time of Emmy’s death, as well as a set of identical twins.
Morgan, who said giving birth to a child just a few months after losing Emmy made her realise that her joy and grief could coexist, shared with her pregnancy news that she couldn’t wait to welcome two more little boys to their brood. “I can actually say with joy and excitement that we are expecting identical twin boys,” she shared on Instagram. “From the beginning of this pregnancy, we knew Emmy had her hands in this miracle somehow.”
