Nancy Kerrigan Gives Birth to a Son

There's a new addition to Olympic medal-winning figure skater Nancy Kerrigan's (search) family.

Kerrigan gave birth to a son, Brian, on Thursday in a Boston-area hospital, according to her publicist. Brian weighed 7 pounds, 9 ounces and measured 21 inches at birth.

"It is the most rewarding thing in my life, so I could not be happier to be adding to the family," said Kerrigan, 35. "It has not been an easy road but the hard things are often the best things. We are looking forward to a lot of excitement."

Kerrigan lives in Lynnfield with husband Jerry Solomon and Brian's brother Matthew, 8, and half-brother Clay, 16.
