The U.S. skiing community is in shock after the 19-month-old daughter of Olympic gold medalist Bode Miller drowned in a pool.

"We are beyond devastated", Miller posted on his Instagram account Monday night. "Our baby girl, Emmy, passed away yesterday", the family wrote on Instagram, along with photos of their blond-haired baby girl. Her love, her light, her spirit will never be forgotten, ' Bode captioned a attractive pic of the baby girl.

Miller has posted frequently about his family on social media, including sharing soon after Emeline's birth that she was named after his grandmother.

Our thoughts are with Bode and Morgan during this time.

First responders arrived and administered CPR before transporting the child to the hospital, where she died, the website said.

His full status read: "We are beyond devastated".

Emeline was his second child with Morgan, a professional volleyball player and model. The couple have a son, Edward Miller, born in 2015, a year before Emeline was born in 2016.

Morgan is now pregnant with the couple's fifth child as the couple have four other children - son Nash, who the couple share together, and son Samuel, and daughter Neesyn, from Bode's previous marriage. The baby is due in October.

Known for his flamboyant persona outside the sport, Miller retired in 2017 after suffering a series of serious injuries in the previous two years and becoming involved in a legal dispute with his skis manufacturer.

Miller was a key pundit for Eurosport during the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang earlier this year.

Bode and Morgan are also parents to Nash Skan, 3.

Miller, America's most decorated alpine skier with six Olympic medals and 33 World Cup wins, made his retirement official in the last fall.
