A month later, the couple announced that they would soon be parents to a baby girl. "The whole pregnancy she's felt like a girl," the then proud mama-to-be told PEOPLE in October. "That's what I really wanted for my first so I'm extremely stoked she's a girl. Already buying clothes."

The new arrival is Kody's third grandchild. Daughter Maddie Brown Brush is mom to daughter Evangalynn Kodi, who turns 2 in August, and son Axel James, 3, whom she shares with husband Caleb Brush.
