Survivor’s Rob and Amber: New Parents!

Congratulations to Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich on the birth of a daughter, Lucia Rose! This marks the first birth of a child by two Survivor contestants.

Rob and Amber, arguably two of the most popular contestants ever on Survivor, also appeared for two seasons on The Amazing Race and on their own reality show, Rob and Amber: Against the Odds.

From PEOPLE:

Amber Brkich competed on Survivor: The Australian Outback, which aired in 2001. Rob Mariano was first seen on Survivor: Marquesas in 2002. Both formed a winning alliance on Survivor: All-Stars, which concluded with Rob’s on-air proposal to Amber during the May 9, 2004 finale. After competing on the seventh season of The Amazing Race as an engaged couple, the two wed on April 16, 2005. In 2007, they took on The Amazing Race again during its All-Star season.

In 2005, Amber told PEOPLE: “We both come from a family of three kids, so I would like to have three kids, but you never know what happens, so hopefully we are blessed with at least one child and then we would both like to adopt one day if possible.”

Two years later, she spoke to PEOPLE about their plans to have children. “We definitely want a family and we’ve been talking about it,” Amber said. “But I think it was also important for us to spend the first couple of years just the two of us together.” Rob added, “We are not trying right away but when it happens, it happens.” Now, the important question.

How will the birth affect the rumored appearance of either parent on the upcoming Survivor All-Stars: Heroes vs. Villians? I suspect not at all. Perhaps Rob and Amber have moved beyond that stage of their life and entered a new one?

Regardless, some might equate parenthood as a long season of Survivor, wherein in all the participants are winners!
