Congratulations to Rebecca Adlington on the birth of her third child!
The Olympian and I’m A Celebrity… I need to get out of here! The contestant and her husband Andrew Parsons are expecting their third child.
They already have two children: an eight-year-old girl named Summer and a two-year-old son named Albie.
Rebecca, 34, posted the prettiest images from the happiest location conceivable to announce that their gorgeous family is ready to grow once again.
She announced her pregnancy on Instagram with photos from Disneyland Paris, where she was smiling in front of the castle.
The athlete, who was dressed with a Mickey Mouse t-shirt, couldn’t have been happier when her other half and their children laid their hands on her developing belly.
Her caption read: ‘Our own bit of magic ✨
‘Baby number 3 on the way ❤️’
Rebecca was inundated with messages of congratulations, with one fan writing: ‘Huge congratulations – fantastic news! X 🥳’
‘Such beautiful news! Congrats to all of you ❤️’, said another.
Fellow athlete Richard Whitehead added: ‘Congratulations matey’.
Rebecca and Andrew’s baby delight comes after she tragically miscarried last year.
At the time, the athlete required emergency surgery and was being treated for sepsis, a kidney infection, and fever.
Rebecca reminisced about a year after making the devastating statement online.
She acknowledged to feeling’responsible’ for what transpired, but knowing she had no influence over the disastrous circumstances.
‘Because I’d had two children without any problems, a miscarriage never crossed my mind. I realise this might sound naïve, but I expected some signs,’ she told The Mirror.
‘I felt really responsible for the miscarriage, even though it wasn’t my fault. I remember speaking to the doctors and they said there was nothing I could have done to prevent what happened.’
Despite now being pregnant again, the gold medalist said earlier this summer that she wasn’t going to pressure herself to have more children.
She believed that her ongoing struggles with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) would affect her chances of conceiving.

‘It’s not easy to get pregnant,’ Rebecca continued. ‘I just don’t want to put loads of pressure on it or have any expectations.
‘Especially when people start asking every single month, “Are you pregnant?” I don’t want to deal with that while working full-time and having two kids.’
She concluded: ‘If it happens, it happens. If not, it’s not meant to be.’
