Sanya Richards-Ross Welcomes Baby No. 2
The four-time Olympic gold medalist, who joined the cast of RHOA in Season 14, shared the news of her son’s birth in an Instagram Story.

“He’s here!!!!!” Sanya wrote. “And he’s healthy, super chill and an absolute cutie! God is so good. Thanks for all the prayers.”

She also added a hashtag for the phrase “Ross Party of 4 LOADED.”

Sanya has yet to publicly share any other details about her new addition, including his name, though we do know that Married to Medicine’s Dr. Jackie Walters served as her OB-GYN. Her baby boy joins her and Aaron’s other son, Aaron Jermaine Ross II aka “Deuce.”

Aaron hinted that Sanya was set to give birth on Instagram shortly before the retired Olympian shared her Instagram Story.

“Heavenly Father, I humbly come to you asking for a healthy and safe delivery for my wife [Sanya Richards-Ross] and our new baby boy…” he wrote in the caption of the post. “Guide me in being an example of integrity and strength for my [two] young kings. I ask that my actions reflect honor, loyalty and discipline through their eyes as an example of leading their family one day. I ask that my wife will receive all the blessings that you have in store for her. I want to thank you for entrusting me with this gift and responsibility…”

Sanya Richards-Ross’ Pregnancy Journey
Back in July 2023, Sanya confirmed her exciting pregnancy news in an interview with PEOPLE. She also opened up to the outlet about experiencing a “traumatic” prior pregnancy loss, which happened while she was filming RHOA Season 15.

“At my age, it’s considered a geriatric pregnancy, so I was nervous that the window has started to close. And after the miscarriage, I wasn’t ready to go through something like that again — that physical, mental, and emotional pain,” Sanya told the outlet about making the decision to try again after the loss. “But my doctor assure me that everything looks good, and sure enough, it worked.”

Less than two months after she made her initial announcement, Sanya shared a video on Instagram revealing the sex of her baby.

In the video, Sanya, her retired NFL player husband, and Deuce played a game of tug-of-war. Sanya stood on the pink side, while Aaron was on the blue side. The spouses took turns pulling Deuce, and Aaron ultimately won out, confirming that their new addition would be a boy.

Now, only a few months later, Deuce’s baby brother has arrived, and Christmas has come early for the Ross family.
