Sanya Richards-Ross and her husband Aaron Ross are expecting baby no. 2. 

The Olympic track and field champion teamed up with Nike to create a commercial-like announcement that led viewers to believe she was making a comeback for the 2024 games.

But, at the very end, Sanya revealed her baby bump in a sweet scene with her husband and their 5-year-old son, Aaron II.

The caption on the video, shared on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star’s Instagram page read: 

I’ve never been more sure about going for it again like I am RIGHT NOW!!!

It wasn’t easy then and it won’t be easy now, but I’m ready! Wish me luck… 🌈💓💙

Thank you to my @nike family for making this happen. Writing new chapters with my loves.

See the original post and the video below. 

In the mid-season trailer of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” they tease Sanya’s journey to conceiving and the moment she found out she was pregnant.

Sadly, Sanya Richards-Ross suffered miscarried two months later. 

It was very traumatic.

I was in New York and had a really bad miscarriage. I had to go to the hospital.

I had to have a blood transfusion.

It was very, very, very scary.

You already opened your heart to becoming a mom, so it was awful.

Even just talking about it… it really was a difficult time.

Prior to her second pregnancy, Sanya wasn’t sure about becoming a mom again. 

Don’t get me wrong, Aaron and I, we loved being parents.

But all these years in, we had just gotten into a good rhythm where we finally figured out how we wanted to parent.

We had that balance where we were communicating well again, I was finally working again…

And so I was skeptical about having another child.

But, Sanya Richards-Ross told People the miscarriage “put everything in perspective.” 

I didn’t realize until then how much I really wanted to become a mom again and how much of a blessing it is to be a mom.

And I was like, ‘You know what? It’s family first, and all the other things that I love — which is work and all that stuff, it’s second.

I know if I do this, if I focus on my family, all those things will come.’

Two months after the miscarriage, Sanya and Aaron Ross learned they were pregnant with their rainbow baby.

I didn’t think it’d happen so quick again.

But my husband, he prides himself.

He’s like, ‘I never miss.

Whenever you’re ready, I’m ready.’

Sanya Richards-Ross is four months pregnant and due on December 25, 2023. 

It’s going to be the best Christmas gift ever.

But I just couldn’t be happier and more clear about.

I know I can do this. I’ve done it before.

I have the support.

I know what to expect.

I’m so ready to meet this little one.

Congratulations to Sanya and Ross on the forthcoming addition.
