The pair’s baby news came six months after the Hawaii native shared her miscarriage with her Instagram followers.

“I just went through one of the most vulnerable, raw, massive, confusing, just phenomenal experiences that a woman could ever endure,” she wrote of the pregnancy loss in October 2020. “Matthew and I have been so intentionally trying to get pregnant and calling our child … I’m trying to call in my child that I know is waiting for us. And I want to just open my life and my arms to this human. And so on our second cycle of calling this child in, we got pregnant. And it was among just such extraordinary intention and love. I miscarried. I found out at four weeks and began the cycle of miscarriage on my sixth week.”

The actress went on to write about how meditation was helping her heal and “rise above [negative] conditioned thoughts.”

She told social media users not to feel sorry for her at the time, explaining, “I don’t feel sorry for myself, and to go through these experiences and to get pregnant and to be alive … to be alive is an accomplishment.”

Puente and Morrison first became parents in October 2017 when Revel arrived. Morrison announced the news with a photo of himself fist-bumping the infant.
