Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan, 38, and husband Jerry Solomon, 53, welcomed their third child – and first girl – Wednesday morning in Winchester, Mass. The baby was born via Caesarean section, and weighed 6 lbs., 12 oz.
Big brothers Matthew, 11, and Brian, 3, were anticipating the birth of their new sibling, and were both surprised,
“They’re very excited. 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.”
Nancy and Jerry are still working on a name,
“I think that is the hardest job, to pick a name for somebody,” says Kerrigan. “We are not very good at that.”
How many of you left the hospital without a name for your baby? Or how many of you named your baby one name, then changed your mind?
We named my middle daughter Margaret, told our family – then I changed my mind, she just didn’t look like a Maggie – now she’s Abigail ‘Abby.’
