In January, Christina announced that she had devastatingly suffered a miscarriage at 11 weeks. 

Despite being ‘shocked’ and ‘completely heartbroken,’ she made clear she wasn’t ‘ashamed’ or ‘discouraged.’ 

‘Today I had a miscarriage,’ Christina wrote on Twitter and Instagram. ‘Baby was 11 weeks old. We are shocked & completely heartbroken. 

‘We were only 1 week away from sharing the news so I feel like it’s also important to share this news too. I want to continue to help change the story & stigma around miscarriage, secrecy and shame,’ she continued.

In August 2017, Christina announced she was expecting her first child, and the couple welcomed a daughter, Carmella Costabile, in January 2018.

‘The greatest gift we’ve ever known !!! Welcome to the world Carmella Stanley Costabile born today,’ Paul captioned an Instagram post from shortly after her birth.

‘Mom and our little principessa are doing great. Dad can’t stop crying!’ he joked.

The Distance songwriter previously divulged her struggles with postpartum depression following her daughter’s birth to People.

‘That got me the hardest when I stopped breastfeeding around Christmas. I was so sad and so dark,’ she explained. ‘We’re almost made to pretend it’s not happening, like, “It’s fine. I’ve got this.”‘
