Bobby Brown Welcomes New Baby While Coping With Loss of Another Child

Even as he's struggling to hold on to hope for his comatose daughter Bobbi Kristina, Bobby Brown is experiencing some good news on the family front: Bobby's wife Alicia Etheredge has given birth to a baby girl.


The couple, married in 2012, are also parents to 5-year-old Cassius. This birth must be a ray of sunlight for Bobby, who's still reeling from news of his 22-year-old daughter with the late Whitney Houston, Bobbi, discovered unconscious in her bathtub in January of this year.

Since then, rumors have swirled about whether Bobbi will be taken off life support, but Bobby refuses to let doctors pull the plug. So, she's been in hospice care since mid-June.

As heartbreaking as it must be for Bobby to contemplate saying good-bye to his daughter, I think a parent can still celebrate the birth of a new family member. Because no matter how heartbroken he must feel, life does go on. While it's hard to compartmentalize your life, it is possible to feel joy and sadness at the same time. Because honestly now, when is life just one or the other?

I'm guessing that if Bobbi could say something to her dad right now, it would be something along the lines of a congratulations -- and a heartfelt request for him to try to be happy.

I certainly hope Bobby and Alicia are reveling right now in the miracle of their new baby -- and that this can maybe help Bobby cope.
