Strictly's Greg Rutherford welcomes third child as fiancée Susie Verrill gives birth to baby girl

STRICTLY Come Dancing star Greg Rutherford has welcomed his third child after fiancée Susie Verrill gave birth to a baby girl.

The 34-year-old Olympian did not reveal what they'd called their bundle of joy, or when exactly she was born.

He also didn't announce the gender, but the couple had previously told fans that they were expecting their first girl.

Greg took to his Instagram page this evening to announce the news, posting a sweet photo of her toes.

The star captioned the post: "Family complete ❤️ what an incredible week it’s been."

Susie added on her own social media page: "We’ve been settling in with the new arrival at home for a few days now and couldn’t be happier ❤️.

"Baby spam will no doubt be imminent but in the meantime here’s some freshly born tootsies 🦶"

Greg, who won Celebrity MasterChef in 2019, announced the pair were expecting their third child in December.

At the time Susie admitted having a "long, tough road" so far in her third pregnancy as she struggled with Hyperemesis gravidarum – a serious condition which causes extreme morning sickness.

Last month, the expectant parents faced further fear when Susie was rushed to hospital because their unborn baby "stopped moving".

Greg told fans at the time: " Susie suddenly realised she hadn't felt the baby move in a while. We went through all the steps to try and make her move and nothing happened.

"The worry was caused by the fact that normally she doesn't stop moving! We jumped in the car and headed to the hospital. They found the heartbeat and then in typical fashion, she kicked!"

The sportsman added: "I almost cried when the heartbeat was found. The stress of being pregnant never gets any easier."

Susie and Greg have been together since 2012 and got engaged in May 2019.

They already share two sons; six-year-old Milo, and three-year-old Rex.

Greg is an Olympic champion who won long jump gold at London 2012, and also competed on Strictly Come Dancing in 2016.
