Sanya Richards Ross And Hubby Expecting First Baby
Baby making love was all up and through the air for Valentine’s Day yesterday. On top of learning Kel Mitchell and wife Asia Lee have a bun in the oven, Sanya Richards Ross and hubby Aaron Ross shared they’re also expecting their first child.
The announcement from the pro-athlete power couple was absolutely adorable, with Aaron, a former cornerback in the NFL, kissing the growing belly of the track and field star while she held red Valentine’s Day balloons.
A second photo captioned, “New year…new chapter…new joy,” showed the couple holding a pair of infant sneakers with the words “Baby Ross” across the front, likely already speaking their child’s future athleticism into existence.
In a statement to People magazine, the husband and wife said:
“Many parts of our lives have felt like a fairy tale, but this is our biggest blessing yet. We are so excited to start a family and can’t wait to begin this new adventure!”
Sanya, 31, and Aaron, 34, tied the knot on the gold medalist’s birthday in 2010 after dating for seven years. When we spoke to her in 2013 on the heels of the debut of her WEtv reality show, “Sanya’s Glam and Gold,” she said this of their partnership:
I always try to prioritize my marriage. I think it helps because my husband is also an elite athlete so he understands what it takes to be the best in the world and he really gives me my space to be able to travel and to train and do all the things that I need to do to excel so it makes me love him even more. We don’t get to spend all of our time together so when we are together, we cherish it and we make the best of it, but it’s not always easy.”
