“I’m so grateful to God for the health and blessing of Trulee in our lives,” Brice, 37, tells PEOPLE, sharing an exclusive photo of himself with his wife and new daughter. “And I’m so amazed by Sara. She was truly courageous through this special time, and beyond beautiful from the inside out.”
“We are so blessed and beyond overjoyed to bring our precious baby girl into the world. She’s beautiful, happy and healthy. We could not ask for anything more,” Sara adds.
Of her daughter’s unique moniker, she adds, “Nanette is my middle name, and the meaning of it is ‘grace,’ so we felt connected to it.” According to the new mom of three, her sons have already taken to their baby sister in the most adorable way.
“The boys were so sweet and tender, happy to each get a turn holding her,” Sara tells PEOPLE. “They both spoke in soft voices and treated her like the fragile little flower that she is. We are very proud of the love they displayed.
