Jessica Ennis-Hill: 'I'm Pregnant'
Heptathlete to sit out this summer's Commonwealth Games...
Jessica Ennis-Hill has revealed that she is expecting her first child.
The Olympic gold medal-winning heptathlete will miss this summer's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow as a result of her and hubby Andy Hill's happy news.
She broke the news in a statement which was released by her management today.
It said: "I have some very unexpected but exciting news to share – Andy and I are expecting a baby.
"We are completely overwhelmed, with excitement and a degree of anxiety that I am sure all first-time parents will relate to.
"My plans for 2014 have been completely turned upside down, but having had a couple of weeks to think about things from a career point of view I am 100% set on returning to full-time athletics once our baby is born and go for a second gold medal at the Rio Olympics in 2016 – that challenge really excites me.
"But in the short term I will make our baby a priority and enjoy the whole experience as much as possible.
"I am sorry I won't be in Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games, but know it will be an amazing occasion. I will be at home awaiting the arrival of a little Ennis-Hill."
