"Little Women: LA" star Christy McGinity is heartbroken following the death of her two-week-old daughter, Violet Eva, who was born seven weeks premature. 

Christy McGinity and her boyfriend, Gonzalo Justo Carazo, have lost their third child, a baby girl, merely two weeks after welcoming her into the world. 

In an exclusive statement to "PEOPLE," McGinity broke that she is mourning the loss of her baby daughter Violet Eva who was born seven weeks premature. 



It is with our deepest sorrow that we send our baby girl Violet Eva Carazo to play with the angels.

McGinity is a mother to her two other kids, Autumn and Trenton Artran, who were born out of a previous marriage. Violet was the first child that she shared with her boyfriend Carazo.

As the family deals with the unimaginable pain, the couple shared in the statement that they want their fans to respect their privacy at the moment. 

"We were able to spend two weeks with our sweet baby girl and for that we are forever thankful."



According to the family rep, the little one was born at 33 weeks on March 6. Shortly after the birth of his daughter, Carazo took to Instagram to share a snapshot of her ultrasound. 

Violet weighed 3 lbs., 15 oz. and measured 15 inches at the time of her birth. McGinity announced the news of her daughter's birth through an Instagram post on March 11. 


The couple announced the news of their pregnancy back on September 9, 2019, with a sweet Instagram post. One of the pictures in the collage featured Carazo tenderly kissing his girlfriend's belly while the other one featured them smiling at the camera. 

"I’m so excited that we are having a baby. What a big blessing. Good things come to those who wait."


Weeks before Violet's birth, McGinity shared that things were not going well with her pregnancy. She shared a picture of the baby bump on Instagram, asking her fans to pray that the early contractions stop. 

Fans have followed McGinity's life ever since she joined the cast of "Little Women: LA" in 2014. The show wrapped up its eighth season last summer but the premiere date for a new season hasn't been announced yet.
