The littlest gymnast has arrived.

Shannon Miller and her husband, Drummond Press president John Falconetti, welcomed their second child, daughter Sterling Diane Falconetti, on Tuesday, June 25, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The baby girl, who is named for her maternal great-great-grandfather and paternal grandmother, arrived at 11:49 a.m., weighing 6 lbs., 15 oz. and is 19½ inches long.

“Shannon and John are thrilled to welcome Sterling into the world,” the seven-time Olympic medalist’s rep tells PEOPLE. “Mom and baby are healthy and doing well.”

Sterling joins big brother Rocco, 3½.

Miller announced her pregnancy in January following a battle with ovarian cancer, which required surgery to remove her left ovary and the malignant tumor, followed by nine weeks of chemotherapy.

“Rocco wants a girl,” she admitted in March. “It’ll be the first girl grandchild on my side of the family.”

As part of the Magnificent Seven, Miller took home two golds at the 1996 Atlanta Games, adding to the collection of two silvers and three bronzes she won in 1992 in Barcelona. Most recently Miller, who now focuses her work on health and fitness through Shannon Miller Lifestyle, covered the Summer Olympics in London.
