Three years ago, Marina Krim came home to a gruesome scene. She found the bodies of two, out of the three of her children, in the bath tub with their throats cut allegedly by their nanny, whom also cut her own throat during the attack. Now, Marina and her husband are pregnant with their fifth child.
Kevin Krim, 40, and his wife Marina Krim, 39, announced wonderful news on Oct. 8, they’re expecting a baby! The news comes three years after their two young children, daughter Lulu, 6, and son, Leo, 20 months, were allegedly killed by their family’s nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, 52, on Oct. 25, 2012.
We can’t think of two people more deserving of happiness and joy than Kevin and Marina. The couple took to Facebook to announce that they are expecting a baby boy. This will be the second baby for the couple since the horrific death of their two children, Lulu and Leo whom were allegedly killed by their nanny in 2012.
The statement read:
The fall is a busy and emotional time of year for us: we have the important anniversaries of Leo’s birthday and Lulu and Leo’s deaths, we are excited for the Fund’s 3rd annual “Art of Healing” benefit in less than a month, and of course school activities and the creative fun of Halloween.
We also have some wonderful news: Marina is pregnant with a baby boy, due in late January. Nessie is excited about her new role as queen bee of the family and little Felix (who turns 2 this weekend) is thrilled to give up his crib to become roommates with Nessie in a new bunk bed!
With each new baby, we feel a special and closer connection to Lulu and Leo, who are a constant presence in their siblings’ looks, gestures and voices.
The couple welcomed a son, Felix, in Oct. 2013, just one year after the two toddler’s death. The pair’s eldest daughter, Nessie, 6, whom was with her mother at the time of the death of her baby siblings, is super excited to be a big sis yet again — so amazing.
Alleged Killer Nanny: Yoselyn Ortega Pleads Not Guilty
As of right now, the murderous nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, who is accused of brutally murdering Lulu and Leo in the bathtub of their Upper West Side apartment, has no trial date still. She reportedly told authorities that she killed the children because she was having money problems and took it out on the family for giving her extra work, according to court papers. “I had to do everything and take care of the kids … I worked as a babysitter and she wanted me to do everything.” So disgusting.
