Dame Valerie Adams has given birth to a baby girl.
The Olympian confirmed the exciting news this morning with an adorable photo posted on her social media accounts. "Welcome to the world, Kimoana Josephine Adams-Price," she wrote.
This is Valerie and partner Gabriel Price's first child together. The couple got hitched in a fairytale ceremony at Hamilton's Temple View last year, in front of a close circle of family and friends.
The popular track and field star lost her mother at 15, and is one of 18 siblings, including her brother, NBA basketball powerhouse Steven Adams.
Her first born child is named after her mum, Lilika Kimoana Ngauamo, who passed away in 2000 aged 39.
The pro athlete is still planning to compete at next year's Commonwealth Games in Australia, and has been sharing plenty of videos and photos from her regular training sessions to Instagram.
Speaking to Fairfax earlier this year after sharing her pregnancy news, Valerie opened up about how her mindset had changed now that she was expecting her first child.
"When you're an athlete you tend to control everything where now this little human inside of you is controlling you," she said.
"So that took a little bit of getting used to but right now I'm feeling really good. I'm actually smashing training as much as I can which has been quite fun."
