Just before she tried for a third gold medal, Olympic athlete Kerri Walsh Jennings tried for a third child. She got both.
On Monday's Today Show, the volleyball champion revealed she was five weeks pregnant during her record-breaking win at London's Olympics.
"When I was throwing my body around fearlessly, and going for gold for our country, I was pregnant, and today I'm 11 weeks pregnant," Walsh Jennings told Matt Lauer. The 34-year-old athlete already has two sons--Sunshine, 2, and Joey, 3--with her husband Casey, also a volleyball player.
A month before the games, while on a romantic trip in Gstaad they decided not to put off their plans for a third child any longer.
"I just felt like it would take me a while this time to get pregnant for some reason," says Walsh Jennings.
It didn't. Five weeks later in London, she had all the familiar signs. "I'm a pretty happy girl and I was unreasonably moody," she says. She was also four days late for her period.
