"The first time I saw @hamiltonmusical was September 2015 with Miguel by my side and the original Broadway company on the stage. Adelaide was heavy in my belly as I squished into the narrow seats at the Richard Rodgers Theater 8 months pregnant," his wife wrote on her Instagram.

"Tonight, I watch my husband retake the stage, life imitating art imitating life, and Adelaide is still with us but now resting heavy in our hearts," she continued.
