All the while, Stewart had to focus on basketball, which proved particularly difficult in Tokyo. As long as the baby did not arrive early, the birth would be induced right after the Games.

Stewart said she needs to compartmentalize like never before. “When it was playing time at the Olympics, I was completely focused on the game,” she said. “When I was off the pitch I could think of Marta and the baby.”

True to his private nature, Stewart has not spoken about Ruby to his teammates on the United States National team. She told me that only her teammates and close friends from Storm, Jewell Loyd and Sue Bird, knew what was going on behind the scenes. Bird is one of the founders of ENSEMBLEXR, the media company for which Stewart shot a documentary on her surrogate motherhood journey.

“I went from one emotion to the other,” said Stewart. “From winning a gold medal to achieving, OK, I’m going home and my daughter will be born in less than 24 hours.”

What a week she was going to live. With the gold medal mission complete, Stewart returned home with the team, arriving in Los Angeles on August 8, a Sunday. From there, she boarded a private plane to Boise, where Xargay and the surrogate waited. Last Monday afternoon, at the Birkeland Maternity Center in Nampa, Idaho, Stewart and Xargay watched Ruby slip easily into the world.

The dark haired girl’s screaming cries filled the room. She weighed 9 pounds 4 ounces. “I was in shock to see a baby born in front of me,” said Stewart, who stands 6ft 4in tall with wide and angular shoulders. ” I felt like crying. I also just felt the love that was in the air.

Stewart cut the umbilical cord. Soon she and Xargay held Ruby for the first time. They put their baby on a bed. They placed the freshly won gold medal alongside Ruby.
