Rebecca Adlington Expecting Her First Baby

Rebecca Adlington

Have you heard Rebecca Adlington's happy news? The Olympic gold medallist is expecting her first baby!

Rebecca shared the news with the world via Hello!, telling the magazine:

"The due date is 4 June so, yes, we must have conceived on the first day of our honeymoon in Venice." 

Er, I don't know about you but that's a little more information than I really needed. Anyway, moving swiftly on, however, Rebecca's husband of three months joked that the couple won't be taking a leaf out of the Beckhams' book.

He said:

"But we're not the Beckhams – we won't be calling the baby Venice!"

Once the news broke, Rebecca took to Twitter to thank all her well-wishers for their support. She tweeted:

"Thank you so much for all the lovely messages!!! Really kind. Were so excited! I can't wait to be a mum! #pregnant #excited"

My favourite part of this story is that Rebecca is planning a water birth. Presumably we're talking about an average birthing pool, though, and not an Olympic-sized one...

We'd love to hear your experiences of having a water birth. What one word of advice would you offer Rebecca?

What do you think?
