Benanti previously shared her miscarriage heartbreak in an emotional op-ed for Huffington Post Women, in which she called for more public conversation about the issue.

“If this is so common, then why do we only speak about it in whispers, if we speak about it at all?” she wrote. “If this is so common, why does it feel like the Voldemort of women's issues?"

Congrats to the couple on their baby girl!
