Great American Media stars Carlos and Alexa PenaVega announced the heartbreaking loss of their fourth child, a daughter who died during birth, on Tuesday.

The two stars, who just recently announced their first film with Great American Media’s Pure Flix after doing a number of films with Hallmark Channel, shared the news in a joint Instagram post.

“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. It has been a painful journey,” the couple wrote. “But in the pain we have found peace. God continues to comfort and hold us in his arms. The prayers from the community around us have been so sustaining in this difficult season.”

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

The Hallmark Channel ex-pats have been together since 2012 — and married since 2014 — and share three children together: son Ocean, 7; son Kingston, 4; and daughter Rio, 2.


They just recently announced a new film project — “Mr. Manhattan,” available on the streaming platform Pure Flix on May 24 — that confirmed their move from Hallmark to Great American Media. They follow a number of former Hallmark regulars like Candace Cameron Bure, Danica McKellar, Trevor Donovan, and more.
