Olympian Shannon Miller Expecting Second Child

Seven time Olympic medalist Shannon Miller is expecting her second child.  The news of the new addition was a shock for the 35-year-old former gymnastics star who had undergone a battle with ovarian cancer in 2011. 

"My world stopped," she said of the cancer diagnosis.  "Instead of calling my parents to tell them they had another grandchild on the way, I was calling them to tell them may have cancer.  Our baby plans were put on hold indefinitely."

She ultimate had her left ovary removed and went through a nine week round of chemotherapy. 

This will be the second child with husband John Falconetti.  The baby will join big brother Rocco, 3.
