Morgan Miller honored her late daughter Tuesday on what would have been Emeline's third birthday. Miller and her husband, former Olympic skier Bode Miller, lost their child in an accidental drowning accident in June 2018. The pro beach volleyball player shared photos of her baby on her Instagram story.
"Happy birthday baby girl," she wrote over a newborn photo of Emmy.
The second shot was a more recent picture of Emmy, who looked happy in a sparkly pink dress and bow. "Today would have been your 3rd birthday. We miss you so much," Morgan said.
Emmy was only 19 months old when she died after drowning in a neighbor's pool. Morgan was pregnant at the time with her son Easton, whom she welcomed four months later. In August, the couple announced they were expecting identical twin boys, who are due later this month.
"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," she wrote in August. "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."
Morgan continued, "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 beginning of this pregnancy, we knew Emmy had her hands in this miracle somehow."
Bode also shared the happy news on social media.
The Millers are parents to Easton, 1, and his big brother Nash, 4. Bode has a daughter, Neesyn, 11, and son, Sam, 6, from previous relationships.
