After being told she would never have a child, the former figure skating champ finally gets her miracle baby.

Notorious skating star Tonya Harding is a mommy! She gave birth to a baby boy on saturday, Feb. 19, in a Washington State hospital. “Everybody’s healthy and happy,” her friend Don Horn tells The Oregonian. Congratulations Tonya!

Tonya let the news out that she was expecting a boy!

This is the first child for the former figure skater, 40, who lives with husband Joseph Price, 42, in Washington. “She’s always wanted a baby,” Don adds. “She was told she could never have a child … and guess what? It really is a miracle and she really is very happy.”

Tonya became notorious in 1994 when her ex-husband Jeff Gilooly and her bodyguard hired someone to club her American rival, Nancy Kerrigan, in the knee with a pipe at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Nancy would still go on to win silver at the 1994 Olympic games while Tonya did not medal.

It seems like Tonya has finally cleaned up her act and has the baby she has always dreamed of.
