Welcome to the world, Nico!

ATLANTA — Three-time Olympian Elana Meyers Taylor can add another title to her name -- mother.

The metro Atlanta resident just gave birth to a baby boy.

"Nicholas, aka Niko, Mommy & Daddy love you very much," she tweeted along with a photo. "In true Meyers Taylor fashion our baby boy is already showing how much of a fighter he is! 🥊 Even though our champ started over 8lbs, he’s in the NICU but he’s strong and getting better every moment.  We love you Nico!"

The day after she made the announcement, she won a national competition in bobsledding.

Elana, who says she wants to compete in another Winter Olympic games, kept training right up until little Nico arrived.
