The Nieto’s are expecting!

That’s right…Olympians Shevon Nieto (née Stoddart) and her hubby Jamie are expecting their first child together.

The two made the announcement moments after Stoddart received a standing ovation from all four judges of the popular talent competition America’s Got Talent (AGT).

In a subsequent share on Instagram, Nieto captioned the charming vid: “Mommy wore Blue on AGT for you, AGT Family” – hinting at the sex of their unborn child as male.

The two-time Olympian sang an original song - Through The Good & The Bad - on the show, and received a standing ovation and four "yes" votes from judges Howie Mandel, Sofía Vergara, Eric Stonestreet and Simon Cowell.

“When I was on the show, I was [about] four months pregnant,” she told NewsDay. “But I just picked the right dress so you couldn’t really tell.”

“We were really excited about the performance airing,” Nieto continued, “but we were more excited to make that announcement. It was like the icing on the cake.”

“Guess what?” Stoddart said, teasing AGT host Terry Crews following her performance. “We’re expecting a baby!”

The couple revealed the news to AGT host Terry Crews recently. “What a beautiful couple! We have an AGT family right now,” Crews exclaimed.
