Alexa and Carlos PenaVega Announce Stillbirth of Baby No. 4: ‘God Continues to Comfort’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Alexa and Carlos PenaVega announced the loss of their fourth child, Indy Rex PenaVega.

The couple posted a joint statement on Instagram informing fans of the devastating news that their daughter was stillborn.

“There are never the right words to say when it comes to loss,” the PenaVegas wrote. “After a beautiful and peaceful delivery our daughter ‘Indy’ was born at rest. It has been a painful journey. 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.”

They continued to pay tribute to Indy, sharing the impact she’d already had in their lives.

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

“We can’t understand why things like this happen and we may never get those answers,” the PenaVegas continued. “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.”

Alexa had complications during her pregnancy and took to Instagram to share a vlog update after she’d been admitted to the hospital with contractions at 32 weeks.

“Basically, what happened—I wasn’t doing anything strenuous. I was literally just cooking in the kitchen, I wasn’t stressed,” she said in an Instagram video. “And it was almost like a gushing feeling like my water breaking. There was so much blood.”

PenaVega continued, “In that moment, I was [thinking] about having this peace, that God just allowed me to stay okay and stay confident in Him because, at the end of the day, it was out of my control.”

Movieguide previously reported:

Alexa and Carlos PenaVega sat down with Matt and Abby Howard on “The Unplanned Podcast” to discuss marriage, parenthood and their experiences in the entertainment industry.

The couple revealed they are practicing four months of abstinence during pregnancy and postpartum after Matt posed this question: “I was overhearing, though, do you guys have to be abstinent for four months in marriage?”

“Well, basically, what happened was we’re about to have our fourth child, number four,” Carlos said. “We had a little scare the other night. She [Alexa] basically had to go to the hospital. We thought the baby was coming early. There was a little bit of blood. Like, oh no, what’s going on? Baby’s okay, mommy’s okay.”

Alexa shared that she had been having contractions but was only 32 weeks pregnant. “I’m trying not to go into labor right now,” she explained. “Carlos had been out of town for the last two weeks dealing with a couple of things, and he came back to all of this, and obviously, we’d already abstained for two weeks, and the doctor said that abstain until I give birth but then after you give birth you can’t [be intimate] for six weeks.”

The couple first announced their pregnancy in November 2023 on Instagram.

“Thank God we love adventures 😍😍😍 Oh baby here we come! Número cuatro!” the PenaVegas, who are parents to Ocean, Kingston and Rio, posted on Instagram.

Please join us in prayer for the PenaVega family as they mourn the loss of Indy.
