Morgan and Bode Miller are expanding their family.
PEOPLE exclusively announces that the couple, who wed in 2012, are expecting a baby.
“We’re finally on our last pregnancy,” Bode says as Morgan, who is due in November and plans to have a home birth, adds: “We’re at the finish line.”
They are parents to sons Nash, 6, Easton, 2, 18-month-old twins Asher and Aksel, and daughter Emeline, who drowned at 19 months old in June 2018. Bode is also dad to daughter Dace, 13, and son Nate, 8, from two previous relationships.
“After losing Emmy, we both felt like we wanted to try for a girl. You know, there’s obviously no replacing kids,” Bode shares. “All of ours are so unique that it’s always a surprise, but then we had the identical twin boys [in 2019] and we were kind of like, ‘Whoa, maybe, maybe that’s the end for us.’ ”
Morgan, who learned she was pregnant at three-and-a-half weeks along, says, “We constantly knew that we had more space in our hearts to give more love. Kids require a lot of attention and a lot of love. We have a lot of attention and a lot of love to give, but we feel like this will be the last one for us to be able to put all of ourselves into. So that way, all of them still get a bunch of love and attention. And we’re not stretching ourselves too thin.”
