Matt and Annie Grevers Welcomed Child #2 on Sunday

Matt and Annie Grevers are now parents a second-time over, after Annie gave birth to the couple’s 2nd child on Sunday. Barbara Grace Grevers, who was named after her grandmother Barbara Chandler, was born at 10 pounds and 22 inches – already showing off the height that she’s inherited from her dad Matt (6’8″) and mom Annie (6’1″).

The couple’s first child, Skyler Lea, was born in November of 2016 and is 3 years old.

Matt Grevers, 34, is a 6-time Olympic medalist, including 4 gold medals. He won the 100 backstroke title individually at the London 2012 Olympic Games. While he missed the 2016 Olympic team, and admits that he contemplated retirement, he instead has carried on to back-to-back World Championship teams. In 2017, he won 2 gold, 1 silver, and 10 bronze medals; while in 2019 he won 2 silver medals (both in relays).

He was all about his pending second round of fatherhood at his last meet, the International Swimming League’s U.S. Derby meet in Maryland 2 weeks ago, admitting that the new baby would impact his training, and that the pool was also a refuge of peace in a world of screaming children.

Annie Grevers (née Chandler) was an elite swimmer in her own right. A former member of the US National Swimming Team, she swam collegiately at the University of Arizona (where Matt currently trains, though he went to college at Northwestern). She won 2 gold medals at the 2011 Pan American Games in the 100 breast and 400 medley relay.

As a junior at San Antonio’s Churchill High School, Annie Grevers broke the National High School Record in the 100 yard breaststroke.

Matt Grevers is scheduled to race at this weekend’s U.S. Open in Atlanta in the 50 free, 100 free, and 100 back, and then again in 2 weeks at the International Swimming League finale in Las Vegas.

I heard Joe Schooling got back to top form by the 100 fly final, and it was exciting.

Maybe she will look happy and pristine like Our Lady when she gives birth. Who knows.
But right now she is too far from Annie’s smile.

You’d think they might change the baby hat in 19.5 years (maybe more) or give this little one an upgrade. Talk about style that’s doesn’t change!

She’ll have a lot to live up to, her older sibling is the head coach at Missouri and she’s only 3 years old!
