"Our sweet little Light!!! Auntie Becks loves you, we are so happy you are here, healthy and pure love!" added Rebecca Kennedy.

The fitness instructor first announced her pregnancy in May during one of her Peloton classes, shouting "I'm pregnant!" during a ride.

"Sophia and I are so excited to usher in this new energy into our home and become mothers," she said of her fiancée.

She added, "My fertility journey was not easy. For the last year unbeknownst to you Peloton, you have been there for me in ways that are powerful and unspoken. So to all of my fertility warriors, I see you, I feel you, I love you."

King and Urista became engaged in 2020. King told PEOPLE in 2021 that the couple was "very excited" for their future, but hadn't moved forward with their wedding plans since they "definitely don't want to modify our wedding experience [due to the pandemic]."

Despite the pause on wedding plans, King ensured she and Urista — who are based in Brooklyn — were still taking steps to "create together and have a family together."
