The gold medal-winner and her hockey player hubby, Bret Hedican, have their second child
Olympic gold medal-winning figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi and her husband, Bret Hedican, a Carolina Hurricanes defenseman, have had their second child, PEOPLE reports in its upcoming issue.
Emma Yoshiko was born on Nov. 17 in Raleigh, N.C. The couple also have a daughter, Keara, 2.
Yamaguchi, 34, and Hedican, 35, met at a 1995 gala to celebrate the opening of Vancouver’s new ice hockey arena. “He was clean-cut and soft-spoken,” Yamaguchi told PEOPLE after they became engaged on Christmas Eve, 1998. “Figure skaters have awful perceptions of hockey players, and I thought, ‘This guy’s a little different.'”
The couple exchanged vows in front of 300 guests after a picture-perfect sunset over Hawaii’s Kohala coast at the Mauna Lani resort on July 8, 2000.
At the reception Hedican serenaded his bride with the Bob Dylan-penned song “Make You Feel My Love”?
“They let us share an amazing moment of intimacy,” skating star Scott Hamilton, who was a guest at the wedding, told PEOPLE at the time. “Every single woman in the room was crying.”
