Olympic Gold Medalist Gives Birth to Twins

Three-time Olympic gold medalist Misty May-Treanor is a mom again. Her family just got quite a bit bigger after she gave birth two twins, reported People. 

The volleyball player announced on Twitter on Thursday that she and her husband welcomed their second and third child.

“The @lbccvikings women’s team got to meet the latest [addition] of Treanors earlier this week,” she revealed, sharing a photo of her babies meeting the Long Beach City College women’s volleyball team she now coaches. “Lots of babysitters!”


May-Treanor, 40, already has one child with her husband, Matt Treanor. Their daughter, Malia Barbara is 3-years-old.

During her second pregnancy, May-Treanor was fairly quiet. When she gave fans a peak into her life, she did it via Twitter.

“Could this be the last day of monitoring???? #ComeOnBabies,” she wrote alongside a Nov. 6 snap, showing a device strapped to her bare belly as she lay in a hospital bed.


“Monitoring for the day done … 34 weeks,” she captioned an Oct. 5 photo featuring her baby-bump-laden shadow. “Can’t bend to wear shoes but it is ok. #PregoProbs.”


May-Treanor and Treanor, a 41-year-old former professional MLB catcher, tied the knot in January 2004. Ten years later, they welcomed their first daughter in June 2014.

Malia’s middle name was chosen in honor of May-Treanor’s late mother. Her mother, Barbara May, was a nationally-ranked tennis player who died of cancer in 2002.

In 2012, at the London Olympics, May-Treanor announced her retirement. Shortly after, she and teammate Kerri Walsh-Jennings took home their third straight gold medal in beach volleyball.

“We both want to start a family,” May-Treanor said of herself and Walsh-Jennings in 2008 after winning gold at the Beijing games. “We need to slow down and breathe a little bit, focus on our families.”

Congratulations to the star on her growing family! Maybe there will be new volleyball stars—or MLB stars—in 2032. In other sports news, tennis star Serena Williams just tied the knot
