Brazilian beach volleyball star Talita Antunes was handed her most important trophy on Friday, in Rio de Janeiro, as the three-time Olympian gave birth to the little Renato, her first son with her husband, beach volleyball coach Renato França.

“And my little prince is here. My love doesn’t fit my chest, it’s endless,” she said in an Instagram post.

Talita, 35, planned to get pregnant after the Rio 2016 Olympics, but decided to postpone it so her and partner Larissa Franca could play on last year’s World Championships in Vienna, where they won the bronye medal. Her last international tournament was the World Tour Finals, in Hamburg, where they also finished third.

After enjoying her baby for some months, Talita plans on returning to the sand and hopefully make a run to her fourth Olympics, in Tokyo 2020.

“It’s my first time on this journey and I’m focused on it, so I’m not putting a timetable for my return, but I’m definitely coming back,” she told beachmajorseries.com in January, when her pregnancy was announced. “I’m just taking a break to have my baby but I have space for both dreams at the same time in my life.”

All the best to the little boy, Talita! We cannot wait to have you both at our events!
