Kerri Walsh Jennings, the three-time Olympic gold medalist in volleyball, has given birth to a girl she and her husband have named Scout Margery Jennings.  Scout is the couple's third child, joining older brothers Joey, 3 1/2, and Sundance, 2 1/2.  PEOPLE.com reports:

Walsh Jennings, 34, and her husband, pro-volleyball player Casey Jennings, feel "so blessed to have this beautiful new addition to our family," they tell PEOPLE. "We cherish our lil Scout already and can't wait to watch her as she grows in this world alongside her sweet big brothers."

The athletic duo thanks everyone for "your thoughts and prayers. We appreciate them all so very much."

The latest addition to the family — who weighed in at 7 lbs., 3 oz and is 20¼ inches long — joins brothers Joey, 3½, and Sundance, 2½.

In September, Walsh Jennings revealed not only was her collection of gold medals growing — she and partner Misty May-Treanor won big during the London games — but her family was too.

After delivering both of her boys naturally, the athlete was hopeful she would follow suit with her baby girl's birth. "Having a natural childbirth just feels right to me, it doesn't feel like I'm forcing anything," she said.
