Within a year of her wedding, the new Foluke Akinradewo Gunderson announced that she and Jonathan were expecting their first child together. While many were elated, her announcement was met with mixed reactions from some who speculated if Foluke would make it to the Tokyo Olympics, which were scheduled for summer 2020 back then.
Their son, Kayode, was born on November 28, 2019 (Thanksgiving Day!). The Olympian suffered from complications after the pregnancy, but told her husband that she was determined to play in the Olympics for the third time. In July 2021, Foluke shut down naysayers by returning to Team USA less than two years after giving birth—and in time for the postponed Olympics.
