Baby daughter for Sir Chris Hoy and wife Sarra – BBC News
Sir Chris Hoy has announced that his wife Sarra has given birth to a baby daughter.
Chloe Rose Carol was born at 36 weeks and weighed 4lb 14oz.
The six-time Olympic cycling gold medallist and his wife already have a two-year-old son, Callum.
Sir Chris revealed the news of the latest arrival on Twitter, saying: “Delighted to announce the safe arrival of Chloe Rose Carol Hoy this week! Sarra and Chloe doing really well.x”
Lady Hoy added: “We owe a huge debt of thanks to our local hospital & amazing staff, who gave me the most incredible care, while our family of 3 became 4.”
The couple’s first child was born 11 weeks prematurely by emergency caesarean section after Sarra was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia.
He weighed just 2lbs 2oz and spent 60 days in neonatal care but has now grown into a healthy toddler.
Following his birth, Lady Hoy became the official ambassador of Bliss Scotland, a charity for babies born prematurely or sick.
