Bode Miller's Wife Honors Late Daughter Emeline After Giving Birth to Twins

November 23, 2019

“She’s still very much here,” Morgan said of Emmy.

Olympic skier Bode Miller’s wife Morgan is honoring their late daughter, Emeline, after recently welcoming twins.

While speaking with People, Morgan, 32, who gave birth to twin boys earlier this month, recalled how she felt Emeline’s presence throughout her entire pregnancy and delivery.

"Talk about divine intervention with this entire delivery," Morgan said. "There’s no question in my mind that she had her hand in all of this. She’s still very much here."

The yet-to-be-named newborns arrived Nov. 8, just shy of a year and a half since they lost their daughter Emeline, who tragically died at 19 months old in a drowning accident.

Morgan expressed to the publication how friends and family have offered their congratulations on the birth of the twins, while also remembering Emeline.

"It’s been really special because everybody celebrates this with us but they also at the same time remember Emmy," she said. "And that makes it special that she’s not forgotten."

✨November 8th✨ A day that couldn’t have been scripted and aligned more perfectly to bring these two into the world. Birth story is mind blowing and can’t wait to share. Insanely overwhelmed and grateful for all these gifts my baby girl keeps sending.

Back in June 2018, Emeline died after drowning in a backyard pool in the Coto de Caza neighborhood of Orange County, California. Although Morgan performed CPR on her daughter, she passed away in the hospital the next day.

Four months later, Morgan, who was pregnant when Emeline died, gave birth to the couple’s third child, Easton.

The former model opened up about her family’s journey when she announced she was expecting twins last August.

"Losing a child while pregnant was the most confusing experience of my life," Morgan began in a caption of a photo of her and Bode’s kids sitting under large, gold balloons. "The conflict of emotions from what was pure joy turned to guilt and terror overnight. How could I love this baby the way I loved Emmy? Was it okay to love this baby the way I loved Emmy?"

Losing a child while pregnant was the most confusing experience of my life. The conflict of emotions from what was pure joy turned to guilt and terror overnight. How could I love this baby the way I loved Emmy? Was it okay to love this baby the way I loved Emmy? It felt like by loving my son, I was trying to replace her. The fear of birthing my son and what that meant …..a monumental step forward….proof that time continued without her when all I wanted was for time to stop. But let me say this….I couldn’t have been more wrong. Easton provided us an even closer bond to his sister. The moment I heard his cry, something sparked back alive in my soul. Hope. Love. I’m not sure. But in that moment, I knew I was Mom and my kids deserved the world from me. Everything was going to be okay. My joy and grief could coexist. Now, I can actually say with joy and excitement that we are expecting identical twin boys. From the day I met my husband, he has always said he wanted identical twin boys born on his birthday. We are due on the lucky day/angel number of 11/11 which is not far off from @millerbode Birthday of 10/12. From the beginning of this pregnancy, we knew Emmy had her hands in this miracle somehow.
