“Hamilton” star Miguel Cervantes and his wife, Kelly, are mourning the loss of their 3-year-old daughter.
Adilaide died of a severe form of epilepsy over the weekend.
She was diagnosed when she was 7-months-old.
Kelly Cervantes posted a photo of an empty bed on Twitter announcing the news.
The machines are off. Her bed is empty. The quiet is deafening. Adelaide left us early Saturday. She went peacefully in my arms, surrounded by love. Finally, she is free from pain + seizures but leaves our hearts shattered. We love you so much Adelaideybug and forever after 💔💜 pic.twitter.com/bf46YCODM7

Kelly Cervantes said in her blog that Adelaide was suffering from a “neuro-degenerative” condition with no cure that caused her brain to deteriorate.

*NEW BLOG POST* “The ‘H’ word” The Cervantes family has had quite a week with something for everyone to celebrate – and we absolutely have. But lurking in the shadows of every celebration is chronic illness just waiting to take back the spotlight – and oh, it has. I don’t use the word “hate” lightly. In fact, there is only one thing Jackson is allowed to say that he hates: epilepsy. But for some reason, using this word has been considered taboo in the community for years. Not understanding why, I made an attempt to figure it out. So curious to hear your thoughts on this topic after reading this week’s blog!
