“She is the good news in a sea of bad news, the light in quite a bit of darkness, and the new life in the midst of so much talk of death. She has transformed our household which was in a state of caution, fear, and anxiety into one of knowing, spirituality and intense love. She has brought us back to our center.”
Speaking about the magical moment he witnessed his wife give birth, Andy added: "I watched my GODDESS of a wife @aijiaofficial in labor for 18 hours and deliver her like a champion. I caught her with my own two hands in the tub and it was a profoundly beautiful experience. I am so blessed. I was just holding Izzy and my first daughter Louisiana wrapped her arms around my neck and said “Daddy has TWO girls now.” My eyes got wide and teary, now I have two girls."
Izzy joins their 2½-year-old daughter Louisiana “Louie” K, whom Aijia has previously said will be “the perfect sister."
Andy— who wed fellow musician Aijia in October 2012— announced the couple was expanding their brood in October.
“I am so excited. There’s nothing else in life that I would want to invest in more than little girls. There’s nothing better!” he told PEOPLE. “It’s the best thing in the world to put your time into."
Since then, "Magic" singer Aijia has been honest about the highs and lows of her challenging pregnancy, revealing in an emotional social media post that she was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum.
"In both my pregnancies I have been diagnosed with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. It's a condition that is estimated to effect about 2% of pregnancies. It causes debilitating nausea, vomiting, dehydration, and malnutrition. IT'S NOT MORNING SICKNESS. It's the worst food poisoning of your life, plus a migraine, 24 hours a day + it ends when it feels like it,"
"Sometimes it's after the first trimester + sometimes it ends when the baby comes out. You may have heard about it recently from @amyschumer or #katemiddleton who also suffered from HG."
She continued: "I am doing better now + wanted to share with you that sometimes pregnancy looks like this. It ain't cute. We posted a really badass pregnancy announcement, but what you don't see, are the tubes running down to my medical device, or the fact that I could only stand up in short intervals. I am so grateful to be having another baby with @andygrammer. We wanted + planned for this babe. But all bodies are different + I think it's important to share that not all pregnancies are butterflies + roses."
