Christina Perri opens up about her late daughter Rosie.
The singer, 35, went on Instagram to make an announcement about her second child with her husband Paul Costabile, 34. She revealed that the baby was “born silent” around the same month year.

“my daughter, rosie, was born silent on november 24th 2020,” Perri wrote in the caption, along with the photo of the album cover and a video containing the song.
She explained that since her firstborn, Carmella, had a lullaby when she was a baby, she thought it would be fitting to make one as well for her late child, saying, “i thought it was especially important to still do it.”
The “Jar of Hearts” hitmaker continued, “rosie’s short and powerful life already served such a huge purpose in our world, and she has lovingly changed me, paul and carmella forever. we are more capable of love and compassion than we ever knew we could be. we learned how to hold space for loss and how to navigate unimaginable grief together and music always heals. releasing these songs for rosie is so important for our hearts.”

Perri then revealed the title of the song — “Here Comes The Sun,” which she released yesterday. According to her, the other tracks from the Songs of Rosie album “will come out november 24th . you can pre-order the album at the link in bio.”
She added, “i hope you enjoy these songs that we’re singing for her, i hope you play them to your families in her honor. i hope you’re inspired to think of anyone you may keep in your heart and most of all to, rosie, our darling girl, we love you forever. come find us again soon.”
Fans Showing Support
Fans and fellow celebrity friends sent messages to the singer.
“i knew this was coming and I’m still a puddle of tears. Oh my dear friend. I don’t know how you managed to get out of bed, let alone heal your mind, your body and be a kickass mom all at the same time. I’m in awe. I’m thinking about the epic dance party ROSIE + HOBO are having in heaven today,” wrote TV host Keltie Knight.
“I think of Rosie often and I’m so grateful that you’re sharing this piece of you and tribute to her for all of us too,” quipped blogger Sarah Nicole Landry.
“You’re amazing, such strength and love that will comfort and bring joy to so many,” added a third follower.
A Painful Year
Perri first shared the news of her pregnancy loss last year in a now-deleted Instagram post. The musician had to deliver her baby around her third trimester due to complications.
“last night we lost our baby girl. she was born silent after fighting so hard to make it to our world. she is at peace now and will live forever in our hearts,” she captioned the update, as seen on People.
In January 2020, Perri took to Twitter and revealed to her fans that she suffered from a miscarriage.
“Today i had a miscarriage,” she wrote. “Baby was 11 weeks old at the time. We are shocked & completely heartbroken.”
