The couple announced the tragic news in a joint message on their Instagram’s. “There are never the right words to say when it comes to loss. After a beautiful and peaceful delivery our daughter ‘Indy’ was born at rest,” they wrote on Instagram. “It has been a painful journey. But in the pain we have found peace.

The couple revealed their fourth pregnancy in November. They share three children together: Ocean, 7, Kingston, 4 and Rio,2. “The prayers from the community round us have been so sustaining in this difficult season. This little girl has already changed our lives in so many ways,” they wrote. “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.” They added, “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 cant wait to see how many other lives you change.

Many of their celebrity friends offered their condolences on the post. Candace Cameron Bure wrote, “We love you. We love baby Indy. We are praying for you and Los and the kids and the day you all reunite. With all our hearts, we are here for you!!!!!” Former Nickelodeon star Daniella Monet commented, “So so sorry Alexa and Carlos, can’t begin to imagine what this loss feels like. You are held, loved, and protected and you know that. Praying your pain away.” Sadie Robertson Huff shared her condolences by saying, “I’m so sorry for your loss my friend. There are no words. I’m grateful for the hope of heaven… love you and praying for y’all.”

Alexa has previously shared her multiple scares throughout the pregnancy. Last month, she posted a video from the hospital where she had been for five days. She revealed that she was experiencing “bleeding” during the third trimester of her pregnancy. At the time, Alexa shared that her doctors said that she likely had a separation of her placenta and was still considered “low risk.”

Alexa and Carlos met in Bible study and got engaged in 2013, tying the knot just a few months later. In 2017, they announced that they were leaving Los Angeles for a more meaningful life, establishing their roots in Maui, Hawaii.
