Olympic gold medalist Carly Patterson announces she is pregnant with first child

While Serena Williams teased the world on Snapchat with a potential pregnancy announcement and got EVERYONE talking in the process, another decorated athlete officially confirmed she's expecting.

Carly Patterson, the all-around gymnastics gold medalist at the 2004 Olympics, revealed that she and her husband, Mark Caldwell, are expecting a baby in October. Disclosing that they had "struggled to get pregnant for quite some time," the former gymnast went on to share their excitement about the news.

She later posted a picture of the couple holding up a series of ultrasound pictures. And if their smiles are any indication, they are clearly thrilled right now.
