Yesterday, gymnastics fans were thrilled to hear the news of their favorite gymnast Aliya Mustafina has finally given birth to a baby girl.

The Russian gymnast married husband and bobsleigh champion Alexey Zaitsev in a small and private wedding ceremony last November. The following month, it was announced that the couple is expecting their first child.

But what's the name of the gymnastics queen's baby daughter? Her name is Alisa, a name Aliya chose a long time ago.

Now that Alisa has popped out of her belly, fans are waiting for the double Olympic champion to make her long awaited comeback.

Retired polish gymnast Marta Pihan Kulesza has also given birth to a baby girl this week whom she named Jagna.

Marta has been married to Roman Kulesza, who is also a competitive elite gymnast, since 2008.

The retired Polish gymnast has represented her country at 2008 and 2012 Olympics. She retired last year following not being selected to one of her country's test event spots.

Aliya's former teammate Anna Rodionova, who competed at the 2013 World championships, gave birth to a baby boy last March. Another former teammate, Ksenia Semenova became a mother to a son last January.

Now the Russian gymnastics community is waiting for 2012 Olympic silver medalist Ksenia Afanasyeva to give birth.
