Gold medal winner Kerri Walsh revealed on the TODAY Show that she was pregnant at the London Olympics.

Jennings, who won the last three gold medals with partner Misty May Treanor, told Matt Lauer that "when I was throwing my body around fearlessly, and going for gold for our country, I was pregnant, and today I'm 11 weeks pregnant."

Jennings and her husband Casey Jennings have two sons, Joey, 3 and Sundance 2.

The volleyballer said she knew something was up because "I'm a pretty happy girl and I was unreasonably moody, I thought it could have been the stress of the games and travel kind of throws your schedule off, but I knew. At some point, you're late and then you start feeling something. And I definitely started feeling something in London."

Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC's chief medical editor, said there was no danger of Jennings competing and that "the risk that she put to herself and fetus was zero to none."
