David Henrie has welcomed his first child — a baby girl — with his wife Maria Cahill. Their daughter, Pia Philomena Francesca Henrie, came into the world on Tuesday, March 19.

The birth of their child comes after a number of devastating miscarriages.

“Today is a particularly special day for Maria and I… and it’s special because in order to get to where we are today, with the joy of our newborn in our arms, my wife and I went through trials,” the Wizards of Waverly Place star wrote on Instagram.

“I felt compelled to share this because I had no clue just how difficult trying to start a family could be.”

He continued, “See, Pia Philomena Francesca Henrie has brothers and sisters… Maria and I suffered three miscarriages before finally being able to carry Pia to full term.”

Despite their three difficult miscarriages, they are extremely grateful for their little girl.

“While it was insanely difficult recovering from miscarriage after miscarriage, we knew if we were ever going to be able to hold a baby of our own in our arms that we must not let the tragedy affect our marriage, but rather grow closer together!” he said.

“We stayed faithful to that conviction and had a little help from @franciscus. The reason Pia’s middle name is Francesca is because I personally asked pope Francis to pray for Maria and I to have a baby.”

He continued, “He took our hands, held them together, said a special blessing, then looked up and told me not to worry that a baby would be coming – that was pretty much exactly nine months ago.”

The couple first revealed they’re expecting a daughter in September 2018.
