Congratulations, Ashley Bouder! The New York City Ballet principal/superhuman pregnant woman is pregnant no longer: She welcomed baby girl Violet Storm de Florio early this morning. (And like the good nerds they are, Bouder and her fiancé have already noted that the "fourth" is strong with this one.)

For those of you unfamiliar with the #bouderbump story, let us give you a refresher course in the most succinct way possible:

1) Here's Bouder doing fouettés at six-and-a-half months pregnant.

2) Here she is doing fouettés at 37 weeks pregnant.

3) And here she is doing fouettés four days—FOUR. DAYS.—before her due date.

Yeah. That's how you do pregnancy when you're a crazy-strong ballerina/straight-up BOSS.

Congrats again, Ashley!
