TORRANCE, Calif. -- Two-time Olympic beach volleyball gold medalist Kerri Walsh has given birth to a son.

Walsh delivered Sundance Thomas Jennings on Wednesday night.

It's the second child in less than a year for Walsh and fellow beach volleyball pro Casey Jennings. Joseph Michael Jennings turned 1 on Saturday.

Walsh is taking time off from the pro tour, but she's planning to return in time for the 2012 Olympics.

Walsh and Misty May-Treanor won the gold medal in Athens and Beijing.
