These international ice hockey rivals just had a baby
Rivals, turned teammates, turned mothers!
Ice hockey players Caroline Ouellette and her wife Julie Chu, welcomed their newborn daughter into the world last week
Chu captained the United States women’s team from 2011 to 2013.
She was the first Asian-American woman to play for the US team, and the second-most decorated U.S. female in Olympic Winter Games history.
Ouellette was the captain of Team Canada at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, where Chu played against her on the USA women’s team.
USA finished out the competition in second place, with Canada just beating them to first place, winning the final game 3-2.
But clearly they were more than rivals, as their daughter Liv Chu-Ouellette was born on November 5.
This past season, they both played Canadian Women’s Hockey League’s Montreal Canadiennes last season.
The team won the Clarkson Cup, while Ouellette was pregnant with Liv.
The couple announced the exciting news on social media.
“After 40 weeks and 2 days, Julie and I welcomed to the world our beautiful daughter Liv,” Ouellette wrote on Instagram.
