"We lost our unborn child about six weeks ago," the couple said in a statement to People. "We would like to thank all of those who expressed kindness and concern but we needed a little time to heal, time to find some solace before we publicly acknowledged our loss."

The couple's relationship became public knowledge in August, shortly after Grammer's estranged wife of 13 years, Camille Donatacci, filed for divorce.

The child would have been the first for Walsh, 29, and the fifth for Grammer, 55, who has three daughters and a son from three previous relationships.
