Re-posting from the German news thread:
I just read that Peter Liebers' son was born on Friday. His name is Emil. Congratulations to the proud parents!

Here's a link to a short article in German. It just states when the baby was born, and that Liebers has to leave Monday to attend a four week long training camp.
http://www.europeonline-magazine.eu/deutscher-eiskunstlauf-meister-liebers-erstmals-vater_390198.html
Google translation:
Mannheim (dpa) - The Berlin figure skater Peter Liebers has become a father. His son Emil was born last Friday [May 1, 2015] in Mannheim, the proud father said on Sunday. The five-time German champion and eighth the Olympics 2014 is married to the former figure skater Denise Zimmermann. Plenty of time for the young at first did not Liebers. On Monday the 27-year-old sports soldier for four weeks must indent the course in the army barracks.
Pair skater Hao ZHANG is a father - his son was born earlier today (May 9): https://twitter.com/ifsmagazine/status/597202705648623616

ETA links to GSD baby news threads:

The daughter of Shen and Zhao was born on September 3, 2013: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/index.php?threads/shen-zhao-are-proud-parents-of-a-daughter.89056/

The son of Gregory and Petukhov was born on November 21, 2014: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/index.php?threads/melissa-gregory-and-denis-petukhov-have-a-son.93868/
They just posted this video with some pics

He's adorable, and best wishes to Melissa, Denis and Daxton.

I don't believe there was a public announcement, but reportedly Rena Inoue and John Baldwin became proud parents of a baby girl in early November of 2011.
The flower girl [at Tiffany Vise and Don Baldwin's 8/23/15 wedding] was Inoue and John Baldwin's 4-year-old daughter, Lilliana.
...
Vise mentioned that Inoue and Baldwin, who married quietly after a very public on-ice proposal at the 2008 U.S. Championships, are expecting their second child, another girl."

It's confirmed now. They are expecting a girl in November.
Yes, and the baby will be Scorpio like her big sister.
Cute photos and video about the photo session in Hello magazine.Speaking about the glow of the expecting moms,Tania Totminaina definitely has it.

Congratulations to Robin and his wife. I'm sure little Henry will bring them much joy, which Robin certainly deserves after all he endured during and after the last Olympic cycle. Would love to see a picture of the proud father with his baby son if anyone has access to one. I don't think Robin is doing much on social media these days?

You can see a picture of Henry and Robin's fingers on Robin's FB wall ;)

Any word as to Alexie & Tatiana have had their second yet? I thought she was due in November but some reports are that she was born early in October?

Does anyone know if Oksana Baiul had a baby? I just started following her on Instagram (i.e., yesterday) and I was browsing her photos and it looks like she was holding her stomach in some of the pictures and people were commenting "Congratulations," etc. And those pictures were from awhile ago so I would think the baby would have been born by now...but there's no mention of it.

I am friends with her on Facebook and she never confirmed or denied anything as far as I could see. If she did have a baby, she's keeping him/her in her private life like Adele did after her son was born. No announcement. No photos.
