Detectives Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were both gunned down in a December 2014 shooting.

The Lius had only been married about three months when Detective Liu was killed. Sanny Liu says she never gave up the idea of having a child.

The new mother says she's excited to introduce her daughter to the New York Police Department, which she affectionately refers to as her "big blue family".
