During Becs Gentry’s 30 minute Pop Run from May 26, 2022 @ 7:30am, a big announcement was made.
Becs Gentry shared that she is pregnant and expecting her first child with her partner Austin.
You can see the announcement here on YouTube, or embedded below.
Becs had previously teased some “incredible journeys” and announcements being made less than a week ago during her “Welcome Back” run from the UK.
She noted that Peloton members are detectives – and clarified that although a recent social media picture led some to believe she was engaged, that was not her big news. She pointed out she always wears rings on her right hand – but that in pictures, the camera was just flipped.
Becs then went on to point out that as a runner, in November there’s a pretty big thing that happens in New York (which is The New York City Marathon).
You know, November’s going to be a pretty important time for me this year. Hugely important. It’s going to be one hell of a finish line in November. But this time, Austin is going to be right there with me in this race. And on the finish year this year, there’s going to be 3 of us, because we are expecting a baby. We’re so so happy, and I haven’t shared it with you guys for a while, because you know, it’s a private thing.
Becs shared that she is in her second trimester already.
When talking about the news, Becs shared how her family would be expanding to now be “3 humans, 2 dogs, and 1 cat” in November.
The Becs Gentry community is known as the “Becs’ Beasts”, and as Becs said today, there is now “a real, original, baby beast on the way.”
Becs thanked her friends & family, and promised more updates in the coming weeks and months:
To all my friends on the leaderboard showing up today, to my colleagues, thanks you so much for the support on this journey. It’s been incredible. And I will share more with you, but we’ve been enjoying it so far.
She also shared that she would keep the community posted about how long she would keep teaching classes.
I’m going to be with you on your journey if you are out there and are pregnant, or you are trying to get pregnant, or struggling to get pregnant. I’m right here. I’m going to do my very best to run with you for as long as possible on this journey. But we will keep each other posted on how it goes. But for now we’re feeling good and we’re feeling strong.
Becs’ announcements means there will be at least 4 new Peloton instructor babies on the way in the coming months. Last weekend, Dr. Chelsea Jackson Roberts announced during class she was pregnant. Earlier this month, Jess King announced her pregnancy during class. And in March, Anna Greenberg also announced her pregnancy in class.
Congratulations to Becs & Austin.
