Ruthie Anne Miles, the Broadway star whose child and unborn baby died after a driver ran a red light in Park Slope, Brooklyn, has given birth to a daughter.
Miles, 37, announced the news on Instagram Saturday just in time for Mother’s Day along with an image of baby feet under the text, “Welcome to the world, Baby Hope Elizabeth.”
“3 generations of April Babies,” she captioned the image with yellow heart emojis.
Miles was pregnant and crossing Ninth Street at Fifth Avenue with her 4-year-old daughter back in March 2018 when a driver slammed into them, killing her daughter as well as another child crossing the intersection with his mother.
The crash horrified the city and eventually led to the passing of new street safety legislation and a traffic-calming redesign of Ninth Street.
Miles announced last month she was anticipating another child with her husband, Jonathan Blumenstein. She thanked loved ones at the time on Instagram for helping the couple cope with the horrific crash.
“Thank you especially to the many of you who supported us in the aftermath of the crash, continually lifted us up in prayer, doused us with love, encouraged us, let us be and grieve these two years,” she wrote, “and now rejoice with us in this new life.”
