Bode and Morgan Miller welcome a baby boy months after daughter's tragic drowning death
Almost four months after losing their 19-month-old daughter, Emeline Grier, Bode and Morgan Miller welcomed their new baby boy on October 5, 2018.
The newborn is the couple’s third child together since tying the knot in 2012. Although, Bode already has two older children from previous relationships.
At the time of Emeline’s accident, Morgan was only five months pregnant.

Even though the couple has not shared the baby’s name yet, their midwife, Lindsey Meehleis, shared a few details about Morgan’s delivery.
Speaking with Today, Meehleis revealed that the baby boy, just like Emeline, was born via home birth in a pool.After the successful delivery, Meehleis recalled, “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,” she added.
40-year-old Bode and 31-year-old Morgan also have a three-year-old son named Nash Skan. Bode’s two other children are five-year-old son Samuel and 10-year-old daughter Neesyn.
The couple shared the pregnancy news to their fans through Instagram in April, approximately two months before Emeline’s accident.
The 19-month-old toddler drowned in a pool on June 9 at a neighbor’s house in Orange County, California. The poor tot supposedly fell in the water after slipping through a back door.
At the time, Bode was not around as he was at a soccer game with his eldest daughter. Only Morgan was with Emeline along with her friends.
It took about 30 seconds before Morgan discovered Emeline in the pool at the time.
They immediately dialed 911 while Morgan performed CPR as the paramedics were still on their way.
They rushed the child to a nearby hospital where she was proclaimed dead the day after. The cause of death was declared as drowning.
