Kerri Walsh Jennings is a gold medal mom.
Not only has she taken home the top award for women’s beach volleyball in the last three Summer Olympics, but she also works hard to be fully present in her three children’s lives.
“I’m in love with them,” Walsh Jennings tells PEOPLE. “They have made my life more beautiful and more meaningful than I ever thought possible.”
She credits her ability to balance being a pro athlete and mom to sons Joey, 5, and Sundance, 4, and daughter Scout, 2, (who Walsh Jennings laughingly says is “the most intimidating woman I’ve ever met in my life”) to the support she receives from her husband Casey Jennings, also an Olympic beach volleyball player.
