LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- It’s a double dose of new baby joy for former “The Biggest Loser” star Jillian Michaels and partner Heidi Rhoades.
After finishing her adoption process of 2-year-old daughter, Lukensia, Jillian’s partner, Heidi Rhoades, gave birth to son Phoenix on May 3 in Los Angeles, People reported. The happy couple welcomed both of their new arrivals to their family during the same week.
“We’re swimming in babies over here,” the 38-year-old new mom told the mag.
The fitness guru/reality star told that mag that she doesn’t mind her new busy mom life.
“I don’t even answer email. I don’t have time to care about anything else,” she said. “I want to be really present and enjoy all the nuances of their growth and development. I don’t want to rush any of it.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the super trainer announced that she had been matched with Lukensia, who is from Haiti, on Access Hollywood Live in December.
“I’ve been matched with a little girl,” Jillian told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover at the time. “But, I now have to get her home… It could take up to a year to get her home.”
Adding, “I went over to visit orphanages and I ended up falling in love with this little girl, and by the grace of God, I got matched up with her. So now, it’s just a matter of trying to get her home and anything can happen and fall through or fall apart, so it’s kind of premature for me to say it, but that’s where it’s at.
