Sir Chris Hoy’s wife Sarra has given birth to a baby boy 11 weeks early. The 6-time Olympic champion cyclist, who retired from competitive cycling last year, tweeted that he was ‘amazed’ and ‘shocked’ by his baby son early arrival, just 29 weeks into the pregnancy.
“Amazed, delighted & a little shocked to announce the birth of our beautiful baby son, Callum David Robert Hoy! Born at 29 weeks,” he tweeted.
Moments later, the 38-year-old new dad shared a picture of his first baby’s tiny hand clutching his finger.
“Although v early days for wee Callum, he’s doing well – as is Sarra. Huge thanks to incredible medical staff,” he tweeted.
And fellow Olympian Rebecca Adlington was quick to congratulate to the couple.
“Congratulations to you both! Hope Sarra is going well, as well as baby Callum!” she tweeted.
