Skate on over to meet Țara Lipinski‘s new family member.
The Olympian confirmed that she and husband Todd Kapostasy recently welcomed a baby via surrogate.
“I dreamt about this for so long,” Tara told People about their newborn daughter Georgie in an interview published Oct. 25, going on to express her excitement over becoming a mom. “A crying baby, sleepless nights. Even when I’m like, ‘Okay, take an hour nap,’ I’m almost too excited. I’m like, ‘She’s there. Just watch her a little longer.”
However, the road to parenthood hasn’t been easy for Tara and Todd, who’ve previously spoken about their infertility journey.
“My husband and I have seemingly hit every roadblock imaginable from the moment we began this process in 2018 and since then I have been under anesthesia 24 times, have had 4 miscarriages, 4 D&C’s, 6 failed IVF transfers, 8 retrievals and a diagnosis of endometriosis that led me to 2 major surgeries,” the gold medalist wrote in part of an August Instagram post. “It has been an excruciatingly painful journey that has been filled with loss & dealing with the grief that comes along with that.”
