Peloton’s Jess King and her wife Sophia Urista have their hands full with two under 1!

The couple announced the arrival of their second child, a baby girl, on July 22. Urista, who has carried the pair’s baby girl for the last nine months, posted a video to Instagram documenting her emotional home birth. “GUERRERA mic drop to my incredible birthing team who went to war with me all day Friday 7/14 into the earliest hours of Saturday morning: @luna_homebirth @mindfulbirthmaryesther,” Urista captioned the post.

The actress and singer also thanked her sisters “who tirelessly & patiently captured the entire 20+ hours of labor @kazziechameleon @jessielevandov,” her partner in “life and love of these babies” King, and her son Luz (Lucien) who “refused to go to bed until mama & bebe were out safe.”

In the video Urista, her care team and her supporters work through the tough and beautiful moments of labor and delivery. At the sweet end, mom and baby spend time snuggling and enjoying some skin-to-skin contact.

“My strongest, sweetest, most gracious, generous, perfect palomita “AFIZA MARIA URISTA KING -but you can call her Íza,” Urista wrote at the end of her post. Adding that she was born, b. 7 lb 13 oz on July 15th at 1:08am, “on my side of the bed!”

The popular Peloton instructor and rock artist first announced they were expecting just three months after the birth of their son Lucien. The couple shared the happy news with a heartfelt Instagram video featuring Urista playing Ablaze by Alanis Morrisette as videos from her pregnancy flashed across the screen. “Waaiiiit for it…And then there were FOUR,” the duo captioned the video. “Jess and I are so excited to announce we are expecting another special addition to our family, our baby girl, blessing us this summer.”

Jess King announced her own pregnancy with the couple’s first son Lucien or “Luz” in May 2022 during one of her classes. “I’m pregnant!” she excitedly shouted. “Sophia and I are so excited to usher in this new energy into our home and become mothers. My fertility journey was not easy. For the last year unbeknownst to you Peloton, you have been there for me in ways that are powerful and unspoken. So to all of my fertility warriors, I see you, I feel you, I love you.”

King and Urista welcomed Lucien into their family in November 2022. “Meet our LIGHT! Lucien Urista King aka Luz, born 11/16/22 at 4:23am. 7 lbs 9 oz. He’s the happiest, sweetest, most delicious little boy,” they captioned a post announcing their son’s birth “Thank you all for the love and support on this journey. We feel so loved and blessed.”

King and Urista met in 2015 and announced their engagement in 2020. The couple revealed in early 2023 that they had secretly gotten married among a small group of family and friends in 2021.

Our congratulations to this power couple on their new addition, and best of luck to them as they navigate two under 1!
