Frankie and Paige Muniz are having a baby.
The Munizes made the announcement on social media in a video posted on their YouTube channel and individual Instagram accounts. According to the video, the couple couldn’t be more excited — or surprised.
“Nothing quite compares to the first time hearing your little one’s heartbeat. We felt like we were living and experiencing a real-life miracle for the first time,” Frankie Muniz said in the video. The second I heard that heartbeat and reality set in, I was throwing out baby names and future career choices.”

‘In a state of disbelief’
Mother-to-be Paige explained why baby Muniz, who is due March 2021, is a “miracle.”
“When we found out that we were expecting, I think we were both in a state of disbelief,” Paige Muniz said. “We knew that we wanted this, but we were told that our chances weren’t that great. The struggle of going to every doctor’s appointment made me feel less and less like a woman.”
“I’m excited to say we’ve beat the odds, and we’re officially 15 weeks along and counting,” she added.
“We’re both really excited for the future, and we can’t wait to meet our little one” Frankie Muniz said.
The pair, who have made Arizona home over the last several years, got married in 2019 at Camelback Mountain and held a ceremony in February at the monOrchid in downtown Phoenix.
They also announced over the weekend they have sold their Scottsdale business, Outrageous Olive Oils and Vinegars.

According to a representative for the Munizes, they’re also selling their townhome in the Willo Historic Neighborhood. Frankie Muniz has sold a number of properties in the Phoenix area over the last decade. In 2017, Frankie Muniz sold his Phoenix mansion for $3.2 million.
Since his successful career as a child actor, during which he played the lead role in the TV show “Malcolm in the Middle” from 2000 to 2006, Muniz has made occasional appearances on shows such as “Criminal Minds” and “Dancing with the Stars.”
