Olympic golden cou­ple’s first baby

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

CY­CLING’S golden cou­ple Ja­son and Laura Kenny made a Valen­tine’s Day an­nounce­ment that they are ex­pect­ing their first child.

The Olympic duo – who live in Chelford – sparked spec­u­la­tion that they’re ex­pect­ing the pit­ter pat­ter of tiny feet when Laura posted an adorable In­sta­gram pic­ture, which showed two adult bikes along­side a child’s bi­cy­cle.

It was then fol­lowed by a pic­ture of a tiny pair of train­ers. Their agent, Luke Lloyd-Daves, then con­firmed the ex­cit­ing news. He said: “I can con­firm that Laura Kenny is in­deed preg­nant and that she, Ja­son and their re­spec­tive fam­i­lies are ab­so­lutely thrilled and de­lighted with the news.”

The cou­ple, who mar­ried in Septem­ber in a pri­vate cer­e­mony at St Al­ban’s Catholic Church in Mac­cles­field, went pub­lic with the news fol­low­ing their 12-week scan.

They are the most dec­o­rated Olympic cou­ple in his­tory and moved to Mac­cles­field to be nearer the Velo­drome in Manch­ester where they both train.

Laura is a four-time Olympic cham­pion for Team GB, while Ja­son has six Olympic track sprint gold medals to his name.
