Christina Perri Welcomes ‘Magic Double Rainbow Baby’
Christina Perri has welcomed her “Magic Double Rainbow Baby” into the world.
The Jar of Hearts singer announced the news on October 23 in an Instagram post featuring a black and white photo of her holding her new baby girl. “She’s here! With a whole lot of faith, trust and pixie dust she has arrived safely," Perri captioned the post. “Please welcome our magical double rainbow baby girl: Pixie Rose Costabile 10.22.22.”
Perri’s wonderful news comes just two years after Perri and her husband, Paul Costabile, endured a miscarriage after 11 weeks and the stillbirth of her daughter Rosie in 2020. The singer and mom to 4-year-old daughter Carmella first revealed she was expecting again with Pixie in May. In the post, she credited Rosie with having a hand in the happy news.
“Rosie sent Carmella a little sister and we’re very excited,” Perri wrote. “We’ve been having all the feelings, but mostly trying everyday to choose joy.” Perri has been honest and open with her fans about her new pregnancy and feelings of loss that still surrounded her time with Rosie.
“I don’t know if Paul or I will ever not feel that longing for Rosie,” Perri told People. “But she will always be in my heart. And after what I’ve been through, I will dedicate my life to helping other women. I truly believe that is Rosie’s purpose.”
Months after Rosie’s death, Perri discovered she had a treatable blood-clotting disorder that may have caused both pregnancy losses. It is her mission now to help other women avoid the hardships she endured by raising awareness about a blood test that can detect disorders like the one she has.
