After sharing the amazing news in her People interview, the soon-to-be mother also posted a heartwarming video of her surprising the entire family with the announcement. "We took a little video of me surprising him. He was still in his robe. He's like, 'You couldn't even give me a heads up? Now I'm going to be in this video for millions of people with my hair looking crazy.' But I was like, 'I needed to surprise you in a very real way.'" The athlete also said that her daughter Athena is already preparing to become a big sister.

"She kisses my belly and says hi to the baby," shares Arzon. "We definitely keep including her as part of this whole process because I want her to feel like she's part of it because she definitely is." In the adorable video she shared on her Instagram, a voice can be heard asking her daughter Athena, “Are you excited for the baby?” and the little girl replied saying, “happy!” “Six more months,” Athena’s dad tells her.  “The baby’s cooking,” Arzon explains. "Arzón-Butler Baby #2 is on the way," Arzon captioned the video, in part. "We are overjoyed, and Athena is so excited to be a big sister!" 🥰🥰🥰."

The trainer, who previously spoke candidly about her choice to work out while pregnant with Athena, told People that she plans to remain active during her pregnancy in an effort to dispel the myth that women who are pregnant have fewer options for fitness. “The biggest message that I want to send to pregnant folks is to focus on what you can control rather than leading with limitation,” Arzon said. “I was very, very physically active during my first pregnancy, and I’m even more so now because I’m not restricted by lockdown.” "Hopefully I'll keep lifting, running, riding and doing all the things until this baby comes," she added.

Arzon told Today.com in 2020 that she drew on her experiences racing for 100-mile marathons when she was feeling fatigue during her first trimester. “I’d tell myself, ‘Just do 10 minutes and you can always hit the eject button if it’s not working,’” she said. “But oftentimes, once you get moving without any preconceived notions as to how far, how fast or heavy — you might do more than you anticipated initially,” she added.
