Olympic gymnast Shannon Miller and her husband, John Falconetti, are celebrating the arrival of a baby girl, E! News confirms.

According to her publicist, the 36-year-old gold medalist and cancer survivor gave birth Tuesday morning at approximately 11:49 a.m. ET to a little bundle of joy the couple named Sterling Diane Falconetti.

"Shannon and John are thrilled to welcome Sterling into the world and mom and baby are healthy and doing well," read a statement from the pair, who already have an infant son.

Miller won hearts as a member of The Magnificent Seven after she and her team earned gold medals at the 1996 Atlanta Games. She also made headlines after a successful battle with ovarian cancer in 2011 for which she had an ovary removed and endured several rounds of intensive chemotherapy. She has since been given a clean bill of health.

"They call it the little miracle baby," the athlete's rep tells E! News.

Miller is now president of Shannon Miller Lifestyle, a firm dedicated to the health and fitness of women company and also devotes time to a foundation she created to help fight childhood obesity, while Falconetti is president of Drummond Press.

Congrats to the happy couple!
