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.
