Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard, 31, and husband Sacha Brown have announced they are expecting their second child.
Beard shared with People, “We are so excited to add to our family!”
The couple has one child together, son Blaise Ray, 3. The athlete talked about her first-born, saying, “He’s so excited. He keeps telling me how he is going to hug and kiss the baby and help me take care of [him or her]. We'll see if that actually happens!”
According to TV Guide, Beard mentioned that this pregnancy has been easier on her body. “During my first pregnancy, I was sick the whole time and felt awful. So far, this pregnancy has been a lot easier. I've only been sick a couple of times and I have way more energy."
The swimmer is a four-time Olympian and has won seven medals throughout her career. Beard and Brown married in May 2009 in Indonesia. Beard has also written a memoir, titled In the Water They Can't See You Cry. The mom has also had several modeling gigs, appearing in Sports Illustrated, FHM, and Playboy.
The athlete is said to be due sometime this July.
