As Bobby Brown struggles to come to grips with his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown’s serious condition, there is a bittersweet joy in his life. His manager and wife of more than two years, Alicia Etheredge, is pregnant with the couple’s second child.
This will be Brown’s sixth child. He already shares son Cassius, 5, with Etheredge and had sons Landon, 26, and Bobby Jr., 21, and daughter LaPrincia, 25, between 1986 and 1992 with ex-girlfriend Kim Ward. Brown and the late Whitney Houston welcomed daughter Bobbi Kristina in 1993.
The R&B singer, 46, is currently in Georgia by his daughter’s side as she struggles for her life after being found unconscious and facedown in her bathtub on Jan. 31. Bobbi Kristina was placed in a medically induced coma, and an insider tells Us Weekly that the situation is “really dire.” Etheredge joined her husband on Wednesday, Feb. 4, as the family stays close to Bobbi Kristina.
Bobby, who has been recently estranged from the aspiring singer, 21, due in part to her relationship with Houston’s pseudo-adopted son Nick Gordon, has struggled to to come to grips with Bobbi Kristina’s fading condition.
“He hasn't been able to accept that his daughter isn't coming back,” the source said. “I think at the moment he's worried that he won't be able to say goodbye. Their last interaction is not the last one he wants to have with his daughter.”
