Update: Nancy Kerrigan welcomes daughter Nicole Elizabeth
Update: The Boston Herald is reporting that Nancy and Jerry have named their daughter Nicole Elizabeth. She was 18 3/4 inches long and has brown hair and long legs.
Originally posted May 14th: Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan has welcomed her third child — a daughter. The 6 lbs, 12 oz baby girl was delivered by c-section at 8 am on Wednesday, May 14th, in Winchester, MA, joining brothers Clay, 19 (from Jerry’s first marriage), Matthew, 11, and Brian, 3. Nancy, 38, and husband Jerry Solomon, 53, had chosen to wait for a delivery surprise with this baby, leaving her older brothers to guess as to what she would be.
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.
Jerry and Nancy have not yet chosen a name for their little girl. Nancy explained,
I think that is the hardest job, to pick a name for somebody. We are not very good at that. Brian thinks Pooper would be good!
Nancy will be in the hospital for a few days recovering from the c-section, but [we’re] looking forward to coming home with a new addition.
The pregnancy was announced in January.
