Retired figure skater Michelle Kwan is a mama! The two-time Olympic medalist — who in December 2021 was nominated by President Joe Biden to become the next ambassador to Belize — took to Instagram on Jan. 5 to announce that she’d given birth to her first child, daughter Kalista Belle Kwan. “I’ve always wanted to be a mom and, to me, she’s a perfect miracle. I had a hard time picturing what she might look like yet it seems like she’s been in my life forever. This has been a challenging journey to motherhood (not to mention a very long labor!!!) and I’m glad I never gave up. I feel so grateful to have had the support of so many during this time, including my fertility doctor, doctors and nurses who looked after me, friends that shared their stories, and of course, my family & my [heart] who I could not live without,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of her daughter and a time-lapse video of her growing baby bump (she had not previously announced she was expecting and has not shared the identity of her child’s father). “As people closest to me know, I’m always full of surprises and tend to keep my personal life private. And, I’ve wanted to share this happy news for many months but each milestone seemed to be exciting and daunting at the same time. Each step of the way, I knew that there was still more time needed until I could hold her in my arms. Here’s a quick montage of the last 9 months to catch you all up:),” she continued, adding, “Also, I want to send my best to all the mom’s out there (as we all know, moms rule the world!). And, I wish anyone trying to conceive in any which way (ivf, iui, surrogacy, adoption and naturally) all the success and love. You’re not alone on this path and I’m pulling for you.”
