It’s bittersweet news for Bobby Brown and wife Alicia Etheredge. The couple welcomed a baby girl this weekend, which is wonderful news, but of course is a joyous occasion that’s tainted by the fact that Brown’s daughter Bobbi Kristina is still in a coma in a Georgia hospice care center and will likely never recover. I can’t imagine the conflicting and complicated feelings the family must be having right now, but the birth of a new life IS a wonderful thing and should be celebrated.
Etheredge was apparently admitted to Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles on Friday and gave birth to the couple’s daughter on Saturday, July 11. This is Bobby and Alicia’s second child together; they already have a 5-year-old son Cassius, and Bobby has 4 children (including Bobbi Kristina) from previous relationships.
Congratulations to them, in any case. Hopefully this new baby will provide even the slightest bit of peace and comfort in what’s obviously an incredibly difficult time for the Brown and Houston families.
