Christina Perri has welcomed her baby girl!

The “Jar of Hearts” singer, 36, and her husband Paul Costabile announced on Instagram Sunday the arrival of daughter Pixie Rose.

“She’s here!⁣” Christina wrote, alongside a picture of herself breastfeeding the new baby, who was born on Saturday, Oct. 22 “With a whole lot of faith, trust and pixie dust she has arrived safely. Please welcome our magical double rainbow baby girl.”

The couple, who are also parents to 4-year-old daughter Carmella Stanley, lost their daughter Rosie after she was “born silent” in 2020 and previously suffered a miscarriage earlier that year in January 2020.

The singer announced in May that she is expecting another daughter spoke with PEOPLE about approaching her pregnancy with optimism.

“Paul and I are choosing to believe everything is going to be OK,” she said at the time.

“And after what I’ve been through, I will dedicate my life to helping other women. I truly believe that is Rosie’s purpose.”

Perri admitted that some days of her pregnancy were harder than others.

“I don’t know if Paul or I will ever not feel that longing for Rosie,” said Perri, who honored Rosie with a tattoo of her name on her chest and a rose tattoo on her hand, as well as a rose tree in the family’s garden. “But she will always be in my heart.”

Months after Rosie’s death, Perri discovered she has a treatable blood-clotting disorder that may have caused both pregnancy losses.

After more than a year of intense therapy, the musician debuted a new album (A Lighter Shade of Blue) and a new mission last summer: to help other women avoid the anguish she experienced by raising awareness about a blood test that can detect disorders like the one she has.

“I don’t care how long it takes; I’ll never stop,” Perri said. “I hope to turn my tragedy into something beautiful.”
