Rebecca Adlington revealed she is expecting a baby boy with her boyfriend Andrew Parsons in an interview with Hello! Magazine on Sunday. 

The Olympic champion, 31, and facilities manager, 30, revealed to the publication that they found out the baby’s gender during a recent scan.

Gushing about the news, Rebecca said: ‘He was on his back with his legs wide open showing us his full package. I couldn’t stop laughing. It was such a funny, joyous moment.’

The athlete said the couple had suspected the child would be male, adding: ‘We had a feeling and so did our friends and family.

‘I feel different this time. I’m bigger and I’ve been craving carbs and savoury things, not sweet things like I did with Summer.’ 

The retired swimmer already has a five-year-old daughter, Summer, with her ex-husband Harry Needs. 

Rebecca and Andrew met through the dating app Bumble in January 2018 and moved in together last summer.

She also went on to address the news that Harry, with whom she co-parents Summer, has recently announced he was bisexual.

Harry came out as bisexual in June this year, and told BBC News that he entered into a relationship with another man in 2019 and said he didn’t feel he could truly say he was bisexual until this happened.    

Rebecca said: ‘Regardless of his sexuality we’ve always supported each other. When you care for another human being you want that person to be well, no matter what they’re going through.

‘You’ve got to be there for those people in your life. Summer is the priority for both of us and we always put her first and I think that’s why we get on so well.

‘He’s been brilliant. Our child will get to know Harry as well.’

Rebecca announced she was pregnant by posting a sweet snap of herself and her boyfriend Andrew Parsons, 30, holding up an ultrasound.
