Olympian Amanda Beard Gives Birth to Second Child

Amanda Beard, the Olympic swimmer who won 7 medals over a career that spanned 4 Olympic games, has given birth to her second child, a daughter named Doone Isla, reports:

"Doone Isla Brown was born happy and healthy June 19th at 3:34 p.m.," Beard, 31, writes.

Along with the announcement, the mom-of-two — the couple are already parents to son Blaise Ray, 3½ — shared a sweet snapshot of her bundled up baby girl, seen snuggled in her hospital hat and blanket.

"So far this pregnancy has been a lot easier. I've only been sick a couple of times and I have way more energy," Beard told PEOPLE while announcing the pregnancy in February.
