Marina and Kevin Krim, whose two young children were stabbed to death allegedly by their nanny, announced good news on May 16 — they’re expecting a baby boy in the fall. What a happy moment after such a horrific tragedy.

Marina and Kevin Krim suffered unspeakable horror on Oct. 25 when Marina discovered her precious kids Lulu, 6, and Leo, 2, stabbed to death in their New York City apartment, allegedly by their nanny Yoselyn Ortega. But the resilient couple revealed on Facebook on May 16 that they are expecting another baby in the fall — and so excited to begin a new future filled with hope.

The couple announced the good news on Facebook on May 16, and revealed that Marina is expecting another baby in the fall. They also revealed that their daughter Nessie, 4, is excited to welcome her new baby brother.

Although they are excited, the Krims understandably wrote that they are “filled with many emotions” as they “look to the future.”

Krim Family Devastated After Nanny Murders

On Oct. 25, Marina and Nessie returned home from the little girl’s swim lessons to discover the lifeless bodies of Lulu and Leo lying in a pool of blood in an upstairs bathroom of their Upper West Side apartment. The horrific murders were allegedly committed by the family’s nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, who had also allegedly stabbed herself.

The Krims left New York City and sought refuge with family in California.

Yoselyn was charged with the murders of the two young children, and was found fit to stand trial on April 5 after undergoing extensive mental health examinations. Her lawyer is arguing that Yoselyn is not mentally stable. She has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
