Nancy Kerrigan & Husband Welcome Their Third Child

Nancy Kerrigan

Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan and husband Jerry Solomon welcomed their third child – and first daughter – Wednesday morning at Winchester Hospital in Winchester, Mass., the couple told People magazine.

The baby, who has yet to be named, weighed 6 lbs., 12 oz., and was delivered by Caesarean.

Nancy, 38, and Jerry, 53, are also parents of sons Matthew, 11, and Brian, 3.

“They’re very excited,” Nancy told People magazine. “Matthew wanted a girl and Brian wanted a boy, and the two would occasionally argue about it, but they’re both looking forward to having a new sibling.”

“All went well. Everyone is fine,” said the dad, who’s been told “there is nothing like the relationship between a dad and a daughter. So it should be fun.”

Once home, the new arrival will move into a navy blue nursery, one of four bedrooms in the family’s Lynnfield, Mass., home.

Nancy, who announced her pregnancy in January, gained only 25 lbs. with this baby, a pound less than she gained with Brian and two pounds more than she put on with Matthew.

As for what to call the little girl, “I think that is the hardest job, to pick a name for somebody,” says Nancy. “We are not very good at that.”

One suggestion: “Brian thinks Pooper would be good.”

    I’m glad things went well with her pregnancy. I know she has had a lot of miscarriages, and problems with infertility in the past. That’s such a difficult thing to have to deal with. I’m glad she was finally able to have more children.

    Ali, I am with you. Nancy is a whiner! While I think what happened to her at the Olympics at the hands of Tonya Harding’s ex was awful, her behavior after the fact was so childish. She could have overcome the whole thing with grace. She already had most of the world on her side, she didn’t have to run her mouth and make her self look as trashy as Tonya.
