This morning, Dr. Chelsea Jackson Roberts shared with the Peloton community that she is pregnant, and expecting her first child with her husband Shane. She announced this live during her 30 min Gospel Slow Flow Yoga Class (from May 22, 2022 @ 9:30am ET).
You can see a clip of her announcement on YouTube, or embedded below:
The class marked almost the 2 year anniversary of her joining the Peloton team, as Chelsea’s first classes on Peloton were on May 27, 2020. She spent the class reflecting over some of her journey from the last 2 years, and how the much the Peloton community has meant to her.
During the class, Chelsea shared that she and her husband Shane had moved from Atlanta, unsure about what the future would hold. She shared how some things ‘had to be put on hold’ as they moved and she changed jobs – and as she and the Peloton community weathered the storms over the past 2 years.
She thanked the community for holding her, and letting her hold them right back. At the end of last year, she shared how she had ‘experienced tremendous loss’.
Chelsea talked about about how there have been storm and clouds, but there is always the sun on the other side of the clouds. She then made her announcement:
The sun for me right now is that I can celebrate that my husband and I are expecting our first baby into the world. I love you Shane. I love our family. Both our blood and by choice. I am so grateful to finally share this news. This has been a journey. There have been moments that you [the Peloton community] have held me in ways that you will never know, as I have moved through my own storm.
Chelsea discussed how two years ago, the community had opened up their arms to her as she joined the team. She went on to say:
I am grateful as you open your arms as my family starts to expand. I want to thank you for being a part of my village. The way that you say that I show up for you, please understand, I feel that 100 times over. Thank you Peloton, for celebrating this news with me.
She closed the class by saying:
I love you to my family near and far. Thank you for showing up with me today.
Congratulations to Chelsea and Shane.
