Amanda Beard showed off her little munchkin Blaise, and said she is so proud of him and herself. She had a difficult-ish pregnancy with high blood pressure and out-of-control sugar cravings. Blaise is here now and everything was worth it.
“Swimming was always my No. 1 focus, but now it’s Blaise. He’s at the top of my pyramid. All your priorities change – I just want what’s best for him. Motherhood is more rewarding than any medal or world record.”
I wonder if that’s easier to say because she already has the medals.
