Spy Kids star Alexa PenaVega has opened up on the loss of her baby daughter Indy.

The actress took to Instagram in a joint post with her husband Carlos PenaVega on Monday (April 15) to announce the loss of their baby.

"There are never the right words to say when it comes to loss. After a beautiful and peaceful delivery, our daughter 'Indy' was born at rest," the couple wrote in a note posted to the platform.

"It has been a painful journey. But in the pain we have found peace. God continues to comfort and hold us in his arms. The prayers from the community around us have been so sustaining in this difficult season," the message continued.

"This little girl has already changed our lives in so many ways. She was absolutely beautiful. And looked just like daddy. Dark hair and all.

"Grief has come to us in waves. Moments of feeling absolutely gutted … then moments of feeling blessed by just getting a moment with her.

"We can't understand why things like this happen and we may never get answers," the couple's statement continued.

"Indy Rex PenaVega, you completely changed our world. You moved us to a new place. You gave us the community we have been longing for. We love you [and] can't wait to see how many other lives you change."

Alexa and her husband Carlos, known for his role on Big Time Rush, announced they were expecting a baby in November last year.

The pair have three children, two sons born in December 2016 and November 2019, and a daughter born in May 2021. The couple married in January 2014.

Organisations including Sands and Tommy's are able to offer help and support to anyone affected by baby loss.
