Laura Kenny has announced she is pregnant and expecting her first baby with her husband Jason.

"Laura, Jason and their respective families are absolutely thrilled and delighted with the news"

The 24-year-old, who is married to fellow cyclist Jason Kenny, announced the exciting news on Valentine’s Day when she posted a picture of three bikes.

The couple's agent, Luke Lloyd-Davies, later said in a statement: "I can confirm that Laura Kenny is indeed pregnant and that she, Jason and their respective families are absolutely thrilled and delighted with the news.

"They very much appreciate all the kind wishes and messages of support that they have received already."

Chris Boardman was among the first to congratulated the happy couple.

Speaking about having children last summer, she said: "We haven't exactly thought about it. I guess I am still quite young. I only put it out there because everybody kept going on about it.

"So I was just like: 'It could be the best omnium rider in the world, couldn't it? Bit of sprint, bit of endurance. You never know.

“In 20-something (years) down the line, you never know."
