Bobby Brown has been given reason to smile, with bittersweet news that wife Alicia Etheridge has given birth to a baby girl on Saturday. 

The child is Brown’s sixth, the second with Alicia. 

Brown has had a taxing year after 22-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina was found unconcious face down in a bathtub in February. 

The daughter of Whitney Houston – who also died by similar means – has been in hospice care in Georgia on end of life care. 

The family, including Bobby, have been holding a bedside vigil for Bobbi Kristina as they cling to the final days, weeks or months of her young life. 

Our thoughts are with the family and friends in what is both a joyous and tragic time.
