Make way for the next member of Team U.S.A. 2024: Olympic gold-medal winning gymnast Dominique Moceanu and her husband, gymnast-turned-surgeon Mike Canales, had their second child, Vincent Michael Canales, on Friday in Cleveland.

Baby Vincent, who arrived a hardy 8 lbs, 9 oz., and 19.5 inches long, is the couple's second child. They welcomed a girl, Carmen Noel, on Christmas 2007.

"Mommy and baby are doing well," the dad of two tells PEOPLE. As for the new big sister, "Carmen couldn't be happier or more excited."

Moceanu, who won her gold in 1996 in Atlanta, and Canales have been married since August, 2006.

"Being a mother is at the very top of my list of accomplishments," Moceanu, who is currently teaching gymastics and plans to graduate from business school in May, said last year. She added to PEOPLE that she's eager to get her kids involved in – what else? – Mommy and Me gymnastics.
