The baby's arrival is happy news for the family, as Mandy suffered a miscarriage in December 2011, sadly losing a baby who would have been named Scarlett. In a Christmas 2011 post to her fans, Gomez referred to Scarlett as the family's "guardian angel."

On Mother's Day 2013, the former Wizards of Waverly Place star announced that her mom was expecting again. "Momma and Brian are finally letting me share the news...My mommy's carrying my baby brother or sister :) I'm the happiest girl in the world!" she wrote.
