The Grammers say they are thrilled at the arrival of their first child together, Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer, who weighed six pounds and two ounces when born.

In a statement, the couple announced that although they had been expected twins, Kayte Grammer suffered a miscarriage several months ago. They wrote in a statement that there is a lingering sadness about the loss but they are celebrating their newborn and plan to have more children together.

The couple married in February 2011. Grammer and his 31-year-old wife recently renewed their vows in Las Vegas.

The 57-year-old Emmy-winning actor and star of series such as "Cheers" and "Frasier" has four other children.

Full Grammer Statement:

“Early this morning Kayte gave birth to Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer. We are thrilled. She was 6 lbs. 2oz. when she entered the world at 1am on the 13th of July in the year 2012. Mother and child are in excellent health.

We were ecstatic earlier this year, when we announced that Kayte was carrying twins.  Tragically we lost the little boy shortly thereafter.  This was not something we cared to make known publicly at the time.  It was unspeakably painful and we know that people will understand our desire to keep the news private then, as we know they will respect our privacy in this matter now.  A glorious birth with a lingering sadness is ours today.  We choose to celebrate the life that has been given us.  We proudly introduce our Faith to the world today looking forward to the days ahead and the children yet to come.”
