The new bundle of joy’s name is Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer, weighing in at 6 lbs., 2 oz.

“We are thrilled. Mother and child are in excellent health,” the couple says. However, they also reveal in a statement a bit of tragedy from earlier on in the pregnancy.

“We were ecstatic earlier this year, when we announced that Kayte was carrying twins. Tragically we lost the little boy shortly thereafter,” says the statement. “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.”

The couple also suffered a miscarriage in the fall of 2010, so it’s great news that baby Faith is doing well. This is the fifth child for Grammer. Faith joins big sisters Spencer, Kandace, Mason and big brother Jude. This is Walsh’s first child.
