Florida gymnastics coach Rhonda Faehn, 36, gave birth to her first child late Tuesday night. Noah Emile Bayon was born at 11:10 p.m. He was 20 inches and weighed in at 7 pounds and 5 ounces. The family is resting comfortably, according to Florida's sports information department.

Faehn and her husband, UF assistant men's tennis coach Jeremy Bayon, did not know the sex of the child until it was born.

Faehn said on Monday she hopes to coach her second-ranked Gators when they open their season Friday night against Illinois-Chicago in the O'Connell Center. However, it appears Faehn will wait until Friday to make a final decision.
