Kerri Walsh Jennings was already one of the poster-women for being an Olympic mom during this summer's London Games. (Her sons, Joey and Sundance, are 3 and 2 years old, respectively.) Little did we know that she was also an Olympic mom-to-be.

In a Today Show interview with Matt Lauer Monday morning, the sports star announced: "When I was throwing my body around fearlessly and going for gold for our country, I was pregnant. And today I'm 11 weeks pregnant and feeling pregnant."

Discussing the timing of the pregnancy, Walsh Jennings -- who appeared on the show with her beach volleyball player husband, Casey -- said, "I just felt like it would take me a while this time to get pregnant," explaining that the couple started trying for another baby in Switzerland a month before the Olympics kicked off. Soon after, she missed a period and was "unreasonably moody."

"At some point, you're late and then you start feeling something, and I definitely started feeling something in London," she said.

The beach volleyball player's longtime teammate, Misty May-Treanor, retired after their London win, telling the Associated Press, "I want to be a mom and share time with my family. All of us as athletes sacrifice more on the family end than people realize." However, Walsh says she's still hoping to compete in the Olympics again four years from now.

Walsh Jennings wasn't the only pregnant athlete in London this year. Malaysian air rifle shooter Nur Suryani Mohd Taibi was seven months and still competing (!) -- making her the "most pregnant Olympian ever," according to Sports Illustrated's David Epstein.

Archer Khatuna Lorig, another Olympic mom, was four months when she competed in Barcelona to win a bronze medal in 1992. Her son has followed in her footsteps to become an archer, too -- so perhaps Walsh Jennings (who's already talked about her sons' athleticism and coordination) will be raising another generation of beach volleyball champions before long.
