Olympian Sasha Cohen is expecting a baby! The figure skater and her fiancé, Geoffrey Lieberthal, shared the happy news with fans on Instagram.
Sasha, who won a silver medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics, shared a photo of her growing baby bump, captioning the photo, “Geoff and I are so excited to welcome a little one into the world! Thank you to everyone in our lives for making today such a memorable one.”
Sasha Cohen Is Expecting Her First Child After Getting Engaged Last Month
The happy couple also had some other exciting news to celebrate: they got engaged in the Jardin Tes Tuileries in Paris in October!
She shared a photo of the proposal with the gardens serving as a stunning backdrop. She later shared a picture of her equally stunning ring on social media.
Sasha and her ex-husband, Tom May, divorced last year. At year’s end, Sasha wrote that she was “sincerely grateful for the new opportunities in my life and accepting of the defining life events that have pushed me to grow and reflect as I embrace the unknown, but beautiful future.”
Sasha Cohen Celebrates a Birthday and Looks to the Future
Sasha also recently celebrated a birthday. In an Instagram post marking the occasion, she said, “I feel incredibly grateful to celebrate my birthday this year with good friends and my fiancé. I think I’m a little wiser, more resilient, and closer to figuring out (and prioritizing) the things that really matter in life. Wishing this next year is as good as the last.”
Given these recent developments, we’re willing to bet next year will be even better than the last.
And something tells us Sasha will be a great mom, especially when her child is old enough to hit the rink…
Congratulations to the happy couple!
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
