"Robert and I are so proud of our family," Strug additionally told People. "We were so excited to give Tyler a sibling a couple of weeks ago, especially a baby sister."

"Alayna is beautiful and doing well," she added. "She is a good baby with a healthy appetite. We know she is going to follow in her big brother's footsteps and be independent, funny and extremely active before we know it!"
