Cycling's golden couple Laura Trott and her husband Jason Kenny are expecting their first baby together, their agent has confirmed. Laura, 24, first announced the happy news on Instagram, sharing a photo of two adult bikes alongside a child's bike, which she simply captioned with a heart. The post was quickly met with messages of congratulations for the pair, who tied the knot in September following their record-breaking appearance at the 2016 Games in Rio. A short while later, Laura - Britain's most successful female cyclist – shared another image showing the couple's pet dogs, with speech bubbles suggesting their reaction to the pregnancy.

Mum-to-be Laura also shared a photo imagining their dogs' reactions to the pregnancy news

Laura and Jason's romance became public knowledge at London 2012 - where they each won two gold medals - when they were pictured kissing at the beach volleyball. They tied the knot in a private ceremony on 24 September 2016, and Laura later shared a wedding day photo with fans on Instagram, describing it was "the happiest day of my life". The mum-to-be has previously joked that she hoped the couple's children would inherit their sporting genes. After an incredible week at the Rio Olympic Veldrome, the couple celebrated with a kiss in front of the cheering crowd before Laura tweeted: "I love him to bits. Our kids have to get some of these genes, right?!"
