Dr. Petit’s life was forever changed after his family was brutally slaughtered in a terrifying invasion of his Connecticut home six years ago. Dr Petit who, barely survived himself, was eventually able to find some peace and remarried a year ago. He and his wife are now expecting a child!

Dr. William Petit will be welcoming a bundle of joy into his life — and he certainly deserves this wonderful news. The victim of an infamous deadly Connecticut home invasion and deliberately set fire that killed his first wife and two daughters in 2007, William finally found love again with Christine Paluf. The pair married in August 2012 and are now reveal that they are expecting their first child together! Congratulations!

William Petit: Second Wife Welcoming Baby

William got a second chance at love when he started dating Christine Paluf in 2011 — and now he will get more joy in his life. The pair told WSFB on August 1 that the baby is due on December 3, 2013.

In 2007, Dr. Petit’s first wife and two daughters were followed home by two ex-convicts, from a store where they had shopped. Petit’s wife was raped and strangled to death by the intruders while the couple’s two daughters — aged 17 and 11 — were tied down to their beds and left to die after the house was doused in gasoline and set on fire.

William was also brutally beaten, and only narrowly escaped to a neighbor’s house.

William Petit Attended Trials For Two Murders

No matter how difficult it got for him, William sat through two long, sensational trials for the two men involved in his brutal home invasion. By making appearances at the perpetrators’ very public multi-phase trials, Dr. Petit got some closure for his family. Steven Hayes was sentenced to death in 2010. His accomplice, Joshua Komisarjevsky, was sentenced to death by lethal injection in 2012.

William Petit Is Healing From Traumatic Home Invasion

New wife Christine has been very supportive of William’s healing process — she even worked with his family’s foundation. After tragically losing his first wife and beloved daughters, it must be extremely difficult to move on.

When William and Christine announced their wedding plans in 2012, Reverend Richard Hawke, William’s former father-in-law, comforted them by explaining that his daughter would have wanted William to have someone like Christine in his life. He also said that he hoped the couple would have children together.

We are so happy that the couple will be welcoming a new baby into their lives.

In the mean time, Christine is getting some baby practice in by babysitting her 2-month-old niece Keegan.

What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Aren’t you so happy that Dr. Petit will get to experience the joys of being a father again?
