Jillian Michaels was used to having her hands full on “The Biggest Loser,” but now she’s taking on an entirely new challenge – motherhood.
Michaels and partner Heidi Rhoades have recently welcomed two new babies to their Los Angeles-area home. Jillian recently brought home 2-year-old daughter Lukensia from Haiti after a lengthy adoption process, while Rhoades gave birth to their newborn son Phoenix on May 3 – and it all coincidentally happened in the same week.
“We’re swimming in babies over here,” Michaels tells People. “I don’t even answer email. I don’t have time to care about anything else. I want to be really present and enjoy all the nuances of their growth and development. I don’t want to rush any of it.”
Michaels writes on Facebook, “I am really happy to finally share with you that I have brought my
daughter home AND I have a newborn son … Thanks for sharing this long journey with me. I am so
Congratulations to Jillian and Heidi (whom Jillian affectionately calls “Mouse” on Facebook)!
