After many delays, Jillian Michaels finally brought home her 2 year old daughter Lukensia, from Haiti. That same week, she also welcomed her newborn son, Phoenix, who her partner Heidi Rhoades, gave birth to on May 3 in California.

"We’re swimming in babies over here,” Michaels, 38, gleefully tells People in its latest issue.
In an exclusive at-home interview and photo shoot, she discusses the two-year journey that led her to her daughter and reveals an incredible twist of fate: Rhoades, 31, delivered their son the same week Michaels finally brought their daughter home.
The instant family has made for long days and nights for Michaels. But she insists she wouldn’t have it any other way. “I don’t even answer email. I don’t have time to care about anything else,” she notes. “I want to be really present and enjoy all the nuances of their growth and development. I don’t want to rush any of it.”
Jillian also shared with Self magazine about how motherhood has already changed her and even admitted to making mistakes she warned her Biggest Loser clients about. Read more about that over at Self.
