Former Olympic gymnast Alicia Sacramone may not be competing in the games this year, but she has already contributed in a big way: by bringing a new baby into the world!

According to an Instagram post by the 2008 Team USA member, she and her husband, NFL quarterback Brady Quinn, welcomed their first child on Friday, Aug. 5. And their new arrival’s timing couldn’t have been more appropriate.

“Yesterday (just in time for the Olympic Opening Ceremonies) @bradyquinn and I welcomed our little blessing of a daughter into the world,” Sacramone, 28, wrote alongside a black-and-white photo of the couple in their hospital garb, cuddling their baby girl after the birth.

Sloan Scott Quinn 6lbs 5 oz and 20.5 inches long!” the new mom added of her daughter, who was born just hours before the Opening Ceremonies commenced in Rio.

The proud new dad took to Instagram to share his excitement over his new baby girl, too.

“Been called a lot of things in my life … Can’t imagine there is anything greater than being called ‘Dad,’ ” Quinn, 31, wrote alongside a photo collage of himself, his wife and another family member holding the newest addition.

“The SSQ has arrived. Welcome Sloan Scott Quinn to the world,” he added.

Folks might remember Sacramone from her 2008 stint at the Summer Olympics in Beijing, when she competed alongside the likes of Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin to win the silver in the women’s artistic team all-around.

Sacramone and Quinn — the latter of whom has played on various teams throughout his career, including the Denver Broncos, New York Jets, Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks — have been together since 2009. The couple married in 2014.

“My security detail is on point #Quinnclan #bossquinn #bellaquinn,” reads a caption next to a photo on Sloan’s own Instagram account, showing her sleeping soundly in a bassinet while the family’s two dogs look on protectively.
