Bobbi Kristina Brown is living out her last days in a hospice facility outside of Atlanta, while her dad Bobby Brown experiences a range of emotions so vast it's nearly unfathomable. The New Edition singer has welcomed a new daughter into the world with wife Alicia Etheredge as he waits for another daughter to die.

Alicia Etheredge gave birth to her second child with Bobby Brown on Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. They also have a five-year-old son named Cassius.

Bobby Brown left Bobbi Kristina's bedside and was in L.A. in time to be with Alicia before their daughter made her way into the world.

Bobbi Kristina has hovered near death's door since being moved from a rehab facility to the hospice a couple of weeks ago. She has been removed from all forms of life support but appears to be hanging on.

It was back on January 31st that Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unconscious in a bathtub in her Roswell, Georgia home. She has never regained consciousness. A trip to a Chicago hospital prior to the move to hospice assured family members there is no brain activity and no chance that Bobbi Kristina will recover.

Meanwhile Nick Gordon--Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend and the young man raised alongside her by Whitney Houston--has assembled a legal team to represent him in a civil lawsuit filed by a conservator on behalf of Bobbi Kristina Brown. The lawsuit alleges that in the days prior to Bobbi Kristina's tragedy he physically abused her and withdrew money from her bank accounts without her permission.

Gordon has retained Jose Baez as one of his attorneys. Baez represented Casey Anthony in the murder trial of her toddler, Caylee Anthony.

Nick Gordon, of course, denies these allegations and maintains his only wish is to see Bobbi Kristina one more time before she passes away.

Yes, the range of emotions Bobby Brown is experiencing right now is vast. The joy of welcoming one daughter into the world while waiting for another to take her last breath is something no father should ever have to endure.

How sad that Bobbi Kristina will never know her new half-sister.
