Sanya Richards-Ross Just Announced the Sex of Her Second Child
The RHOA cast member shared the news in the cutest reveal video featuring her husband and their son.
After weeks of anticipation, Sanya Richards-Ross has finally confirmed the sex of her second baby.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member dropped the exciting news via Instagram on Friday (September 2), nearly two months after announcing her pregnancy. Sanya — who also shares a 6-year-old son with her husband, Aaron Ross — teased the big reveal on Thursday, September 1, when she posted a video of her and her family on the track field.
“Are you ready, Buddy,” Aaron asked his son, Aaron Jermaine Ross II, aka “Deuce.”
“For a brother or sister?” the boy responded. “Let’s go!”
The video then cut to Deuce in a starting position before he jumped up and sprinted down the track. The camera then followed the boy running in front of his dad, as his tracksuit went from pink to blue and then from blue to pink. “Girl? Boy? Girl? Boy?” the teaser read.

“Which will it be?!?” Sanya wrote in the caption. “Final guesses before our official [gender reveal] video drops tomorrow! This journey has been so exciting and it’s been so fun to share all these special moments with you.”
Less than 24 hours later, Sanya came through with the reveal video — and it was as creative as it was adorable. The clip began with Deuce standing in between his parents as he held each of their hands. Sanya was on the pink side of the room, while Aaron was repping the blue half. The husband and wife then played a little game of tug-of-war, as they took turns pulling their son to their respective sides.
“Team boy? Team girl?” the video was captioned.

Deuce’s tracksuit oscillated between pink and blue colorways as he was pulled back and forth. After a few seconds of suspense, it was Aaron who managed to pull his family to the blue side, effectively confirming they were expecting another boy.
Blue confetti then poured down on the family as they celebrated the happy news.
“Finally… God said _______!” Sanya captioned the video, which was directed by Derek Blanks. “Thanks to my amazing team for bringing this to life.”
Sanya Richards-Ross opens about about her pregnancy journey
The Olympic track and field champion announced the pregnancy in a July 27 People magazine article, shortly after she revealed she had suffered a “traumatic” miscarriage. Although she was initially hesitant to expand her family, Sanya told the outlet that the heartbreaking experience changed her perspective.
“I didn’t realize until then how much I really wanted to become a mom again and how much of a blessing it is to be a mom,” she explained. “And I was like, ‘You know what? It’s family first, and all the other things that I love — which is work and all that stuff, it’s second. I know if I do this, if I focus on my family, all those things will come.’”
Sanya’s second baby boy is due on December 25.
