(05/14/2008) - Two-time Olympic figure skating medalist and 1993 U.S. champion, Nancy Kerrigan, and husband Jerry Solomon welcomed their third child -- and first daughter -- Wednesday morning at Winchester General Hospital in Winchester, Mass.

The couple has two other children -- sons Matthew, 11, and Brian, 3.

"They're very excited," Kerrigan told People Magazine about her sons' reaction to their new sister. "Matthew wanted a girl, and Brian wanted a boy, and the two would occasionally argue about it, but they're both looking forward to having a new sibling."

As for now, they are taking their time naming their new addition, "I think that is the hardest job, to pick a name for somebody," Kerrigan continued to People. "We are not very good at that. Brian thinks Pooper would be good."

The baby weighed 6 lbs., 12 oz.

(Update: Nancy and Jerry have named their daughter Nicole Elizabeth).
