Morgan captioned the photo with a simple: “She’s here.”

Weeks before giving birth, Morgan reflected on the life-changing event on Instagram.

“I’ve been daydreaming of what life will be like adding this baby girl to our family,” she shared. “Thinking about all my boys having a little sister and how it’s going to help them grow into even better gentlemen, to respect and protect women the way they will their baby sister.

“She probably won’t date until she’s 30! So excited for this little one to add a little balance to this male dominated household.

The unnamed little girl arrived three years after the couple tragically lost their 19-month-old daughter, Emeline, in a drowning accident.

At the time, Bodie said he was “devastated” by the loss.


Bode, and Morgan were at a neighbor’s party when tragedy struck, and Emeline Grier Miller ended up in the pool where she drowned, according to reports.

Emergency services rushed to the scene on June 9 and paramedics performed CPR before taking the tot to the hospital.

Sadly, however, doctors were unable to resuscitate her.

“They had no pulses the whole way,” Captain Tony Bommarito of the Orange County Fire Authority said. “It didn’t end well.”

Bode posted a picture of Emeline on Instagram shortly after her death and shared “We are beyond devastated.

“Our baby girl, Emmy, passed away yesterday. Never in a million years did we think we would experience a pain like this.”

He added: “Her love, her light, her spirit will never be forgotten. Our little girl loved life and lived it to its fullest everyday.


Body’s newborn joins four older brothers: 6-year-old Nash, 3-year-old Easton and 2-year-old twins, Asher and Askel.

Bode is also dad to son Nate, 8, and daughter Dace, 13, from two previous relationships.

The couple tells PEOPLE they are still deciding on a name for their new addition.

“She’s perfect and bringing her into this world was a perfect way to close this chapter of growing our family. Our hearts are so full,” Morgan and Bode told PEOPLE.

The baby girl was born Friday, November 26 at their Orange County, California, home along with the help of a midwife.

She weighed 8 lbs. 5 oz. and measured 22.25 inches long at birth.

The glowing new mom added: “Bode told me the day after she was born that this is the happiest he thinks he’s ever been in his whole life.”
