The family’s news comes a year after the couple faced heartbreak when Rebecca suffered a miscarriage at 12 weeks.

The athlete shared her experience openly with fans.

She suffered further complications following the miscarriage.

At the time she shared pictures of herself in hospital and told her followers: “On Tuesday me and Andy went to hospital for our 12 week scan only to discover we’ve had a miscarriage which resulted in emergency surgery.”

She continued: “I managed to leave hospital Thursday only to be readmitted Friday. After a day of treating sepsis, a kidney infection and a fever I’m slowly on the mend. Long way to go but I’m in the right place.

“I can’t thank the hospitals and the staff enough, been so supportive. It’s such a devastating time but important in times like these we remember we aren’t alone and have so much support.”

She acknowledged the support she received from her husband, Andrew.

“@andrewparsons5 you have been my rock this week. Same with family and friends. We haven’t managed to process it all yet but I know with their support we’ll get through it.

Once I’m able to leave hospital I’m extremely grateful I get to go home and give my 2 little ones the best hugs!”
