Former Olympic gymnast beats ovarian cancer and is now ‘expecting’

American gymnast and Olympic champion Shannon Miller is expecting a baby! That's right, the 36-year-old is expecting her second child,a girl. What makes this even more wonderful is that this baby comes after a battle against a rare form of ovarian cancer.  Miller was diagnosed with cancer in late 2010. The tumor was removed from her ovary, with nine weeks chemo therapy. Miller says she's now cancer free. The seven-time Olympic winner already has a son with her husband, John Falconetti and they are excited about their new addition.
