The 36-year-old new mom won three gold medals in consecutive Olympics in Athens, Greece, Beijing, China, and London, England, with partner Kerri Walsh Jennings. After the 2012 London games, Misty retired from the sport to start a family with Matt.

The couple announced their pregnancy in February. She told People at the time, "We have been wanting to start our family and we feel blessed to finally have this little miracle happen."

The former athlete is clearly overjoyed about her new position as a mom. She posted the joys of motherhood on her Twitter page.

Welcome to the world, baby Malia!
