Jessica, who retired from athletics in 2016, is already a proud mother to three-year-old Reggie, who she shares with husband of four years, Andy. The sports star returned to athletics one year after the birth of her son, and won World Championship gold in the heptathlon before appearing at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Jess, who was made a Dame in this year's New Year's Honours List, announced her retirement last October. The star has previously revealed how motherhood changed her approach to her sport. "Athletics was my everything, but Reggie is better than any gold medal," she told The Sun. "He is my priority and everything has to fit around life with him."
