Olympic and World Championship gold medalist Bode Miller and his wife Morgan welcomed their newborn boy on Oct. 5, according to People.

The baby’s name is yet to be announced. He was born exactly one month before their past daughter Emeline’s second birthday. Both babies were born at home with the help of midwives.

The couple lost their 19-month-old daughter Emeline on June 10 when she fell into the swimming pool and drowned.

She was only in the water for 30 seconds but can’t be resuscitated with CPR or other live-saving measures. The Millers were beyond devastated. However, they turn their sorrow to power and start to raising awareness of water safety.

“We want to thank our friends, family and every one of you who sent a message, said a prayer or donated for the overwhelming expression of support – we are truly touched and blessed,” Bode said on his Instagram.

“Our midwives started a gofundme campaign to raise funds and we intend to donate these funds raised to worthwhile causes connected to water safety education. We are inspired to make our baby girls memory go forth and help prevent as many drownings as possible.”

Bode, 40, is an American former World Cup alpine ski racer. He married Morgan Beck, 31, in October 2012. Morgan attended the University of California-Berkeley and joined Volleyball Team USA in January 2008.
