Three-time Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh pregnant at London games

CLEVELAND - Making her three-time Olympic gold streak even more impressive, Kerry Walsh now says she was pregnant when she clinched her latest beach volleyball medal in London.

The 34-year old says she didn't know she was pregnant while at the games. She chalked up her moodiness and "touchiness" to Olympics stress. As it turns out she was five weeks pregnant while throwing herself onto beach volleyball sand for another Olympic medal.

Walsh and her husband Casey Jennings announced they are expecting on NBC's Today Show. She admitted they started trying for a third child one month before the summer games, but expected it to take longer to get pregnant.

According to NBC, Walsh says her gold-winning Olympic partner Misty May-Treanor suspected something at the games, joking that her mood swings could mean she's pregnant

The couple are already parents to 2-year-old Sundance and 3-year-old Joseph. Walsh is due in April.
