The two-time Olympic medalist announced the birth of her first child, a baby girl named Kalista Belle Kwan, on Instagram Wednesday with a sweet photo of the newborn.
“I’m overjoyed and tears of happiness are streaming down my face as I share the news,” the 41-year-old wrote. “I’ve always wanted to be a mom and, to me, she’s a perfect miracle.”
Kwan said her “journey to motherhood” was “challenging” and included a “very long labor,” but she said she’s glad she “never gave up.” She wrote, “I had a hard time picturing what she might look like yet it seems like she’s been in my life forever.”
While many are curious who the father of the baby is, she doesn’t mention it. Kwan was previously married to Clay Pell.
Congratulations to Michelle Kwan on becoming a mom ! I’m sure she’ll be super busy as a mom and as an ambassador.
