One of track’s most recognizable couples hinted at adding a new member to their family of two.

Ashton Eaton and Brianne Theisen-Eaton, both of who put an end to their professional athletic careers in early 2017, tweeted out the news on Tuesday morning. “Celebrating one of our last mornings together as a family of two!” reads the tweet, accompanied by the hashtag #Zora. The exact details of the addition are unclear though many followers on Instagram and Twitter have been speculating what, or who, Zora may be referring to.

Theisen-Eaton posted a followup on Twitter saying that “it’s probably not what you’re thinking.” Emma Coburn, bronze medallist at the 2016 Olympic Games in the 3,000m steeplechase, replied to Theisen-Eaton’s Instagram post saying “Yay, puppies are the best.” Theisen-Eaton “liked” that comment on Instagram. Many replies are dog-related with others asking whether a “future world record holder” is on the way. Some have asked about the possibility of adoption.

Tuesday’s announcement, according to Theisen-Eaton’s Instagram post, comes from Tart, a cafe in Memphis, Tenn.
