“This little girl has already changed our lives in so many ways,” they continued. “She was absolutely beautiful. And looked just like daddy. Dark hair and all. Grief has come to us in waves. Moments of feeling absolutely gutted…then moments of feeling blessed by just getting a moment with her.”

The couple went on to state that while they may not understand why this tragedy happened to them, they are eternally grateful for their little girl.

“We can’t understand why things like this happen and we may never get those answers. Indy Rex PenaVega, you completely changed our world. You moved us to a new place. You gave us the community we have been longing for.

“We love you can’t wait to see how many other lives you change,” they concluded.

In November last year, the PenaVegas shared that they were expecting their fourth baby together in a joint Instagram post.

“Thank God we love adventures,” the actress wrote alongside photos of the couple cradling her stomach. “Oh baby here we come! Número cuatro!”

She then went on to document her entire pregnancy online, sharing photos, videos and advice with her 1.6 million followers.

In March, she shared a “pregnancy vlog” in which she thanked her nurses for aiding her during a difficult period.

She’s also collaborated with Mothering Journal in the final four days before her baby was due.

The PenaVegas also have three other children together, Ocean, 6, and Kingston, 4, and daughter Rio, 2 the first of whom came shortly after they tied the knot in 2014.

Our thoughts are with the couple during this difficult time and we hope they manage to find peace despite their tragic loss.
