Kevin and Marina Krim have endured more than any parents should ever have to endure. In October 2012 the couple’s two children, Lulu who was 6 and Leo who was only 20 months old were found deceased in their Upper West Side apartment while Marina was at swimming lessons with their 3 year old, Nessie. The family’s nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, has pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder.
In memory of their children the couple launched the Lulu & Leo Fund. According to the mission statement, ‘The Lulu & Leo Fund helps children and families foster creativity and build resilience through programs that provide meaningful engagement with art and other creative endeavors.
It was on the Lulu & Leo Fund Facebook page that Kevin and Marina shared the happy news that they are expecting another baby, a son, in January. The couple also welcomed son Felix in 2013.
In the caption Kevin and Marina share their happy news saying;
‘We also have some wonderful news: Marina is pregnant with a baby boy, due in late January. Nessie is excited about her new role as queen bee of the family and little Felix (who turns 2 this weekend) is thrilled to give up his crib to become roommates with Nessie in a new bunk bed!
With each new baby, we feel a special and closer connection to Lulu and Leo, who are a constant presence in their siblings’ looks, gestures and voices.’
It’s amazing to me that these two have endured such tragedy and turned it in to something so amazing for them with the Lulu & Leo fund. I’m so happy they seem to have found some peace.
