Janica Kostelic, former professional skier and one of the most succesful skiers of all time, started 2019 in the most beautiful way. She became a mother for the first time at the age of 37. Baby boy Oskar came as the perfect new year's gift to all the Kostelic family.
Janica, who is now the State Secretary for Science, Education and Sports shared the news about her pregnancy with press back in October, saying that it doesn't matter if he'll be into sports or politics. Croatian ''Snow Queen'' didn't want to say who's the father and it's still unknown who is her ''king''.
For those who don't know (and we doubt that there's anybody who doesn't), Janica Kostelic a former World Cup alpine ski racer and four-time Olympic gold medalist from Croatia. In addition to the Olympics, she has won five gold medals at the World Championships. In World Cup competition, she has won thirty individual races, three overall titles, three slalom titles, and four (unofficial) combined titles. Kostelic's accomplishments in professional skiing have led some commentators, writers, and fellow ski racers to regard her as the greatest female ski racer of all time.
And now she's up for another challenge – being a mother. Congratulations to the happy mother!
