Special congrats are in order for Olympic gold medalist Carly Patterson & her husband Mark Caldwell! After struggling to get pregnant for a while now, the lovebirds are officially expecting their 1st bundle of joy later this year! We could not be happier for the two. Find out when Carly’s due here!
Carly Patterson, 29, is going to be a mom! Announcing her and her husband Mark Caldwell‘s big news on Apr. 17 via Instagram, Carly not only revealed the month she’s due, but also that she and Mark struggled to get pregnant for “quite some time.” But after “wondering if it would ever happen” to them, the adorable duo are finally expecting their very first child — and they clearly could not be any more thrilled!
Those closest to us know we have struggled to get pregnant for quite some time and were wondering if this would ever happen for us. Thankfully, God has answered our prayers and Baby Caldwell is due October 2017! Mark and I could not be more overjoyed for our little miracle and we cannot wait to start this journey of parenthood! ❤️👶🏼 "For this child I have prayed and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart" 1 Samuel 1:27
“Thankfully, God has answered our prayers and Baby Caldwell is due October 2017! Mark and I could not be more overjoyed for our little miracle and we cannot wait to start this journey of parenthood! ❤️👶🏼,” Carly captioned her announcement photo, which featured a collage of various pics. In one snapshot, Mark has his arms wrapped around the gold medalist’s stomach, while they both hold a baby pair of sandals. Aw!
And just one day after their announcement, Carly took to Instagram once again to share their baby’s sonogram! “Our sweet little babe❤️👶🏻❤️ #15weekspregnant,” Carly captioned the sweet photo. Carly and Mark tied the knot back in November 2012, and right away, the athlete could tell Mark was different. “This might sound cliché, but after two weeks of dating Mark, I knew he was a completely different from any other guy I’ve ever met,” Carly told People magazine.
She added of Mark, who’s a management consultant, “I feel so lucky and fortunate that I get to spend forever with my best friend and the love of my life.” And now they get to add a little one into the mix as well! Congrats again, you two!
