Volleyball player Kerri Walsh and Casey Jennings welcomed the newest member into their family, Baby boy Sundance Thomas was born and Kerri revealed the interesting details of his birth. Keep reading to know this full story plus don’t miss the photos and video below.
31 year old Kerri Walsh and 34 year old Casey Jennings became volleyball’s golden couple when they began dating and then after they got married on December, 2005.
Even more amazing was when the young couple welcomed their first son Joseph Michael Jennings on May 22, 2009 who Kerri calls Joey, and when we thought things couldn’t get any better, Kerri comes and gives us the great news last December that she was taking the year off, she was pregnant again, by that time Joey was just a 6 month old beautiful baby.
"I’m pregnant again so I’m taking the year off and Misty is going to be playing with a different partner. My due date is May 30, so end of May I’ll be taking care of my family and starting to creep back into shape and I’ll be ready for the 2011 season. My hope and my plan is for Misty and I to get back together and be better than ever."
Then she gave us the details of her baby’s sex, as she and Casey said that Joey will be the big brother of a baby boy, Kerri also commented how motherhood has changed and upgraded her life.
Her due date was May 30, but since her tummy was a bit small her doctor thought that perhaps the baby was nourishing well so they decided to induce her on May 23rd.
But on May 19 Kerri began having labor pains while her hubby Casey was in Rome competing at the FIVB Grand Slam. Her mother and sister coached for her, Sundance Thomas was born at 9:59 p.m on May 19 in Torrance, California. He weighed 6 pounds 12 ounces and measured 19 3/4 inches. Both Mommy and Baby Sundance are great, back at home and enjoying their lovely family. Congratulations!!!
