The couple’s first-born son, Gabriel, is equally excited and is already enjoying his new role as Dillon’s big brother.

“We’re very thankful for the blessing of a happy, healthy baby boy and for all of the well wishes we have received,” said Browning. “Mom and Dillon are both doing very well and we’re having a great time enjoying this special time together as a family.”

Kurt is one of the most prolific skaters in Canadian history. He took the world stage as a brash westerner with jumps labeled “raw, confident and powerful”. He now holds the distinction of being the first athlete ever to successfully complete a quadruple jump in world competition. He accomplished this incredible feat at the 1988 World Championships in Budapest, Hungary and is now listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. On the 10th anniversary of this achievement, Kurt celebrated by landing a quad in a performance of Discover “Stars on Ice”. During his incredible career, Browning has earned four World Figure Skating Championships and four Canadian Championships. He won two world crowns when it was still necessary to perform compulsory figures. These honours have certainly provided validity for his decision at age 15 to forgo a career in hockey and pursue the sport that has become his passion.
