Oh what a summer it has been for babies.

Cheryl had Bear a couple of months back, Danielle Bux gave birth earlier this month, and yesterday we reported that Kimberly Wyatt had given birth to a gorgeous daughter.

Today Olympian Laura Kenny has revealed she’s welcomed a wee one into the world too.

The track cyclist who we all know better as Laura Trott, has given birth to a gorgeous baby boy.

To mark the occasion she has posted an adorable picture of her little family on Instagram.

“Welcome to the world little Albert Louie Kenny,” she said. “23/08/17 8lb 12.5oz 22.44 You kept us waiting a week but it was all worth it.”

In the picture we see Laura and her husband sitting on a bench, with their baby between them alongside their dogs!


Fans of the Olympians were fast to congratulate the couple on their happy nappy news.

One said: “Congratulations what a gorgeous name,” one fan wrote.

Another said: “Aw congratulations and welcome to the world little Albert.”

When Laura first announced her pregnancy she couldn’t believe it was ture.

“For the first three months I was constantly questioning being pregnant, I would think, ‘is this really happening?’

“Because until you see it it’s hard to believe almost. So seeing it was a huge milestone but feeling it kick…” she said.

She also told Hello magazine that she was “going to go with the flow,” adding: “I am going to go in open minded. I am not scared at all, not in the slightest. I just want it to be as natural as possible, I will have the water birth set up but I am not sure if I will use it.

“Jason will be my birth partner but he won’t cut the baby’s umbilical cord. We’ve talked about it and he is not keen.”

She also revealed that she had started decorating the nursery neutral colours with an eye on the future.

“I want it to be grey, because if we have a second child it can still be used for both,” she wisely said.
