'Hamilton' Star Miguel Cervantes Reveals 3-Year-Old Daughter Adelaide Has Died

Miguel Cervantes‘ daughter Adelaide has sadly passed away.

The 42-year-old Hamilton star and wife Kelly confirmed that their 3-year-old daughter had died on Saturday (October 12) after entering hospice care last week.

“The Cervantes family is heartbroken to announce that their baby girl Adelaide Grace passed away early Saturday morning,” the Cervantes family shared in a statement with People. “She was held in the loving arms of her family as she peacefully achieves the ‘calm’ for which they’ve been searching for so long. They would like to extend their deepest, heartfelt gratitude to all who have reached out with words of support and prayer and will continue to feel all the love as they go through this difficult time.”

On Sunday, Kelly took to Instagram to share a black and white photo of her late daughter’s bedroom.

“The machines are off. Her bed is empty. The quiet is deafening. Miss Adelaide Grace left us early Saturday morning,” Kelly wrote. “She went peacefully in my arms and surrounded by love. Finally, she is free from pain, reactions and seizures but leaves our hearts shattered. We love you so much Adelaide bug and forever after.”

Adelaide spent nearly all of her life battling seizures. After experiencing her first seizure at 7-months-old, doctors diagnosed her with epilepsy. Two month later, Adelaide was diagnosed with Infantile Spasms (IS).

Miguel will be taking a brief break from his leading role in the Chicago production of Hamilton.

Our thoughts are with the Cervantes family during this difficult time.

'Hamilton' Performance in SF Ends in Mass Chaos, Three Injured

A performance of the Broadway musical Hamilton on tour in San Francisco ended in mass chaos on Friday night (February 15) after the audience self-evacuated.

A woman in the audience had a medical emergency near the end of the show and it happened during the moment of the show when Hamilton is shot on stage. Audience members thought that the woman was shot, though she was really having a heart attack.

Mass chaos ensued and audience members rushed to the exits after someone in the crowd yelled, “Gun!”

The woman and three other people were taken to the hospital with injuries. One of the other three suffered a broken leg. The woman who had the heart attack is reportedly in critical condition.

Cast members also evacuated the theater as someone pulled the theater’s fire pull station. Rick Negron, who plays King George in the production, took to Twitter to explain what happened.

The Tony-winning entertainer returned to the title role in the smash hit musical for the two weeks it will be in Puerto Rico.

Lin brought his dad on stage after the performance and said that was the best part of the night for him. He told reporters backstage, “No one’s worked harder than him. I really thought there was moments he was not going to survive. My dad’s worked in politics and been the most efficient guy in the room his entire career — the whole thing was a test for this. Him getting applause was the highlight of my night.”

Joining Lin on stage and at the after party were co-stars Donald Webber Jr. (Aaron Burr), Julia K. Harriman (Eliza Hamilton), Sabrina Sloan (Angelica Schuyler), Darilyn Castillo (Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds), Ruben J. Carbajal (John Laurens/Philip Hamilton), Isaiah Johnson (George Washington), Simon Longnight (Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson), and more!

Lin-Manuel Miranda Arrives in Puerto Rico to Launch 'Hamilton'

Lin-Manuel Miranda is all smiles while touching down at LMM Airport on Thursday (December 28) in Puerto Rico.

The 38-year-old Broadway and movie star went directly to a press conference to discuss the change in theater and dates for the PR run of Hamilton. A new theater was selected for security reasons.

Lin-Manuel, who was joined at the airport by his father Luis, is reprising his role in Hamilton for the first time since he left the Broadway cast in 2016.

“Our goal is to raise money for arts on the island so that the arts can recover as other sectors of Puerto Rico life recover. We’ll have 10,000 $10 tickets on the island via lottery that we’re just holding. Every Wednesday matinee is all $10,” Lin-Manuel recently said. “It makes me very emotional to talk about. I knew if Hamilton was going to get to go to Puerto Rico in any way shape or form, I’d want to experience that in the first person. I’d be too nervous sitting out in the house.”
