According to Harding’s friend, Don Horn, the 40-year-old first-time mom gave birth on Saturday (February 19) in a Southwest Washington hospital. Last week, Harding confirmed that she was pregnant and “super excited” to become a mom.
Harding required a Caesarean section and remained hospitalized Monday, Horn said. “Everybody’s healthy and happy,” added Horn.
Harding’s marriage to Price is her second. Her first marriage to Jeff Gillooly ended in divorce after Gillooly hired an associate to attack Harding’s fellow 1994 Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan with a baseball bat. Harding later admitted to covering up the incident. She was fined, given three years’ probation and barred from competing in the 1994 World Figure Skating Championships.
