Morgan Miller, wife of Olympic skier Bode Miller, shared a heart-wrenching Instagram post. It was the day of what would have been her daughter's second birthday.


Morgan and Bode lost daughter Emeline Grier in June 2018. She was only a year and a half when she drowned in a backyard pool. Since then, the couple has continued to remember their baby girl.

Morgan, a professional volleyball player, posted three pictures of Emeline two days ago. One where she is lounging on a chair, and two of her playing with her brother Nash Skan, 3. Fans gave an outpouring of support in the comments section.

Morgan, 31 captioned the photo:

"Happy Birthday my baby girl. I love you to the heavens and back."

Emeline's tragic passing occurred when the couple visited a friend in Orange County California in a community called Coto de Caza community. According to Pop Culture, the little girl went off unseen and ended up falling into the pool.


Not 30 seconds had passed before her mother pulled her out and tried to resuscitate her. Her attempts failed, and when emergency services were called, they sadly could not revive the child.

Emeline died at the hospital in her mother's arms. Morgan shared a gut-wrenching picture of her daughter with tubes and other instruments attached to her back in August.

She said: "I wish I could have one more day to hold you, but until that day comes, continue to work through me and give me the strength to bring awareness."


Morgan is now working with her husband to raise awareness about water safety. Some joy has come from the birth of their new son on October 5.

Just five days after losing Emeline, the couple did an ultrasound of their son. Although at first, she declined a 3D image, the doctor said she got a "perfect angle" and needed to do one.


What resulted was an image of their new baby with what Morgan called an "angel lying to the right of his face, holding him, arms around his neck."

Morgan said it was "almost as if to say, 'It's okay. I'm here. It's going to be okay. I love you.' "


She added:

"I hold onto this picture as a clear sign that my son knows his sister. That my baby girl Emmy is still with us. And now that our sweet baby boy is here earth side, he now holds her.”

The couple clearly intends to forever remember their sweet child who passed way too early in life. We wish them strength as time goes on.
