GRETE Sadeiko’s year 2023 has had “an incredible start”.
The former Florida State University track star and her husband, former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III, just welcomed their baby daughter, Gia, into their family.
Grete frequently posted snaps of her growing baby bump on Instagram before she and Robert, 32, shared the big news on Tuesday.
A true fitness enthusiast, Sadeiko also shared workout videos through her third trimester – she worked hard at the gym even though her athletic career had been over for a while.
Grete was born in Turi, Estonia and represented her home country in the heptathlon at the 2010 and 2012 World Junior Championships.
She set her personal best of 5,813 points at the U23 European Championship when Estonia hosted the tournament in 2015.
At that point, she was already a Seminole, having joined the state of Florida in the fall of 2012.
About four years later, Grete and RGIII began dating while the former number 2 finalized his divorce from his first wife.
He split from Rebecca Liddicoat, whom the former Heisman Trophy winner met in Baylor and with whom he had his first daughter, Reese Ann.
In May 2017, Sadeiko graduated from FSU — and she and Robert got engaged not long after.
Robert unexpectedly popped the question during her beach baby shower in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Florida, when she was first pregnant.
“Today was the happiest day of my life and the last 8 months have been the most exciting time ever,” she wrote in an Instagram post while sharing snaps.
“The man of my dreams and love of my life has asked me to marry him today and we are a month away from welcoming our beautiful baby into this world.
“Words cannot describe the feelings and emotions… Unreal. I am the happiest girl in the world and so excited for everything that lies ahead.”
Since then, Grete has retired from sport and opened a gym, Glow Fitness.
She promises to “help busy women get in shape and build their confidence.”
Their at-home bodyweight workout programs are designed for athletes, pregnant women and mothers, according to the studio’s website.
The Griffins also had two daughters, Gameya and Gloria, before it was announced last summer that a third was on the way.
Sadeiko and RGIII posed for some adorable photoshoots while counting down the days until welcoming baby Gia.
Grete proudly shared the snapshots with her 62,000 Instagram followers.
She also made sure her outfits accentuated her baby bump when the couple appeared at public events.
In December, Grete wore a sparkling red dress and Robert wore a sleek blue suit with a black bow tie as they watched Caleb Williams receive the 2022 Heisman Trophy.
“Sizzling Hot Mama!” commented a fan from Estonia.
“And Robert’s cool outfit,” she added.
Another Instagram user wrote: “You look stunning. This color looks amazing on you.”
And a third said: “You’re glowing, Grete.”
On January 24th, Grete and Robert introduced Gia to the world.
“Gia Griffin, 2023 is off to an incredible start,” they wrote in a joint Instagram post, sharing snaps of their newborn.
