Greg Rutherford has revealed that he and his partner are expecting their second child.
The Olympic athlete, who appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in 2016, announced the happy news on Twitter, sharing a video of other half Susie revealing her growing baby bump from under a pair of dungarees, while he and elder son Milo jokingly react.
‘I’m going to be a daddy again!!! To another boy… help! HELP ME,’ he quipped alongside the short clip.
He also uploaded a longer post about the pregnancy to his Instagram account, writing: ‘Me and @susiejverrill are absolutely thrilled to announce we’ll be having our second son in July.’
‘Milo can’t wait to share all the toys he doesn’t like/want with his little brother and likes to ask us daily if he’s ‘got his own tools?’ Yes son, like all good newborns, we’re expecting him to arrive screwdriver and hammer in hand. #CreatorOfBoys #HELP #HELPME #PLEASEHELPME’
Susie meanwhile confirmed the news with a similarly comedic tweet from her own account, writing: ‘Nope, not a brunch gunt, baby boy number 2 growing nicely ready for arrival in July ❤️’
Fans were quick to shower the pair with congratulations over the lovely pregnancy announcement, with one writing: ‘Congratulations to you all. Two boys!! Good luck!! 🎉🎉’ and another adding: ‘What great news. Had a feeling a new addition was on it’s way. Made me feel all warm and fuzzy. Couldn’t happen to a more amazing family.’
Greg and Susie welcomed Milo in October 2014, with the sports star telling HELLO magazine at the time that his arrival was a far more emotional moment than winning his medals.

‘The Olympic gold will always be the greatest thing that has ever happened to me in my athletics career, but nothing could come close to how happy I felt when I first saw Milo’s lovely little face,’ he admitted to the mag. ‘I was crying my eyes out.’
‘Milo’s already bringing me luck. He’s in my thoughts when I’m going to jump and that brings a great deal more emotion. It’s been wonderful to end the year on a high.’
