World skeleton racer Noelle Pikus-Pace and her husband, Janson, welcomed daughter Lacee Lynne Pace on Saturday, January 19th.  The couple’s first child weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces and was 21 inches long.

The 25-year-old new mom released the following statement,

She’s the cutest little baby girl we have ever seen. Not that we’re biased or anything. Seeing her for the first time, tops any athletic achievement I have ever accomplished. I am looking forward to training and competing again soon.

Noelle had announced in October that she would be taking off the current season due to the pregnancy.
