“Grief has come to us in waves. Moments of feeling absolutely gutted… then moments of feeling blessed by just getting a moment with her.”

Alexa has shared multiple scares throughout her pregnancy on social media. Last month, she posted a video from the hospital where she had been for five days. She had been experiencing “bleeding” during the third trimester of her pregnancy, and said she had a moment of feeling like “this is bad.”

At the time, Alexa said that she likely had a separation of her placenta and was still considered “low risk” by her doctors. 

The PenaVegas, who met in Bible study, got engaged in 2013 and were married four months later. PenaVega rose to fame in the “Spy Kids” franchise, while Carlos was a star on the Nickelodeon series “Big Time Rush” and a member of the band of the same name. 

They left Los Angeles behind in search of a more meaningful life for their family in 2017, and established roots in Maui, Hawaii.
