Olympic glory girl Rebecca Adlington is about to start on another big adventure – becoming a mother – and she gave fans another update on her pregnancy this week. The gold medallist posted pictures from her idyllic babymoon with new husband Harry Needs in Dubai.
In one image he was seen kissing her blossoming belly. Becky had captioned the picture: "Night time kisses from daddy @harryneeds to bump #pregnant."
The couple announced their pregnancy news exclusively in HELLO!, revealing that the little one is a honeymoon baby."The due date is 4 June so, yes, we must have conceived on the first day of our honeymoon in Venice," Becky, 26, said.
"But we're not the Beckhams – we won't be calling the baby Venice!" quipped her husband.
The parents-to-be, who met when they trained at the same swimming centre, also revealed that they are planning on a water birth. As Harry, who is a graphic design student and fitness coach, said: "It makes sense for two swimmers to have their baby in water."
Becky recently joked that she needed to invest in some maternity swimwear as her costume was getting too tight. She has also been sharing details of her healthy eating regime, including pictures of a recent breakfast of granola and berries, accompanied by hot water and lemon to drink.
She said: "Trying to stay healthy throughout my pregnancy, very hard when all I want is cake".
Harry and Becky's wedding last August was a romantic affair in Staffordshire.
The ceremony was so personal, which was exactly what we wanted,” revealed the former swimmer of their big day on 31 August which took place at an idyllic rural wedding venue The Ashes set amid 50 acres of countryside.
Of the service for which they wrote their own vows, she said: “I love the fact Harry was in bits before I even reached him. I was a bit nervous in the car on the way here with my dad, but as soon as I walked in, my nerves melted and I relaxed. The room was just so full of love.”
