Less than a week after making the announcement he is expecting his first child, British Olympian Adam Peaty has revealed the sex of the baby.
25-year-old Peaty posted last weekend that he and girlfriend, 22-year-old Eirianedd Munro (Eiri) were pregnant, with the due date in the September timeframe. That date would have been after the 2020 Olympic Games, had they not been postponed due to the coronavius (COVID-19) pandemic.
Today, Peaty took to social media to let his followers know the baby will be a boy.
The initial announcement of the pregnancy was met with minor controversy, as Peaty hit back at media outlet The Sun regarding the accuracy of their story. The Sun reported the couple met via the dating app Tinder and had been on two dates.
“Please don’t believe everything you read as this story is far from accurate. I already feel the overwhelming love that I have for our child and nothing will take that away from me. I can not wait to become a father and the challenges and joy it will bring!” said Peaty.
