UPDATE: Morgan and Bode Miller are expecting a baby girl!
The couple revealed the little one's sex during the May 24 episode of Today. The child is the first girl the family has welcomed since Bode and Morgan lost their 19-month-old daughter Emmy in a tragic drowning accident in 2018.
"It is so special," Morgan told Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie. "I feel like I haven't fully gotten my head wrapped around it because every time I start thinking about it. I just start crying. I mean, to get to experience a relationship with a little girl again Earth-side is going to be unbelievable."
Over the weekend, the parents hosted a party, where they shared the news with their family and friends. After releasing confetti poppers, Bode and Morgan cheered and cried happy tears as they watched pink paper fill the air. "We were just surrounded by such great people, friends who have supported us through everything in our lives," Bode said, "and all our kids who were just fired up either way."
The former pro volleyball player and the Olympic skier also share sons Nash, 6; Easton, 2; and twins Asher and Aksel, 18 months. In addition, Bode is dad to daughter Dace, 13, and son Nate, 8, from previous relationships. During the interview, Morgan recalled how she broke the baby news to the kids with an "elaborate" scavenger hunt on St. Patrick's Day.
"At the end of each clue was their pot of gold. And in their pot of gold, [they] had a little treat plus a word," she said. "And they all had to pull their words out and mix them together to figure out the sentence and the sentence said, 'Another Baby Miller coming November 2021.' They were first completely shocked….They're so excited."
Bode said he and Morgan are planning for a home birth. In addition to getting ready to welcome a daughter, the two continue to advocate for water safety awareness.
