Olympian Kerri Walsh has a pretty good Olympic track record: two gold medals in beach volleyball is something to brag about! But Walsh and her husband, Casey Jennings, have something a little more special to brag about these days: another baby boy! The couple welcomed their second son, Sundance, on Wednesday, May 19th. According to PEOPLE, Sundance weighed in at 6 pounds, 12 ounces and was 19.75 inches long. Big brother Joseph Michael should be all smiles, as well. He’ll turn 1 on Saturday the 22nd!
The beach volleyball star, whose son Joseph Michael was born in May of this year, is already pregnant with her second! Kerri Walsh and her husband, Casey Jennings, are expecting their second baby on May 30th. The two-time Olympic gold medalist is planning to dive back into training once baby #2 is born so she and volleyball partner Misty May-Treanor can team up in search of a third gold medal in 2012’s Olympic games.
Kerri Walsh wasted no time after her gold medal winning performance in Beijing last summer–she became pregnant with her first child before she even left the country! And on Friday, the volleyball player realized her dream of becoming a mother. She gave birth to son Joseph Michael at 8:57 p.m. in Los Angeles. Walsh told PEOPLE,
We could not be more thrilled to welcome Joseph into the world. It’s the most incredible feeling. We are already so in love with him and it’s such an amazing, special moment for our family.
Joseph’s dad is Walsh’s husband and professional volleyball player Casey Jennings.
