Greg Rutherford announces he is expecting THIRD child with fiancée Susie Verrill


Greg Rutherford and fiancée Susie Verrill are expecting their third child together, a baby girl.

The Olympic long jumper, 34, and his partner, 32, announced the happy news on Instagram on Tuesday, where Susie showed off her growing bump in a cream shirt.

Susie revealed she had had a ‘long, tough road’ so far in her pregnancy as she struggles with  Hyperemesis gravidarum – which causes extreme morning sickness.

She wrote: ‘Really happy to share we’ve got someone new joining the family early next year. 

‘The boys are very excited to meet their sister and we’ve been buying lots of miniature pairs of tights. It’s been another difficult HG pregnancy and a long, tough road to get here but we’re so very grateful.’

Greg shared the same photo, writing:’Absolutely thrilled to let you all know baby no 3 is on HER way. WE MADE A GIRL!’

The pair were swiftly congratulated by celebrity pals including Rebecca Adlington, Oti Mabuse and Helen Flanagan.

Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is defined as severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.

Celebrities who’ve been open about their own battles with HG include The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton. 

HG symptoms usually appear between weeks four and six and peak at 9-to-13 weeks.

Up to 20 per cent of sufferers experience symptoms up to weeks 14-to-20, however, most have relief in the later stages.

Unlike morning sickness, which affects up to 80 percent of pregnant women, HG causes severe dehydration and prevents sufferers from keeping any food down.

Greg and Susie met in 2012, exchanging messages for two months before enjoying a bowling date together – and hit it off instantly.

They welcomed first son Milo in Oct 2014 with Rex arriving in July 2017.

Greg won Olympic gold in 2012 and is the British record holder, both outdoors and indoors.

Greg proposed to Susie in May 2019 during a hike in Arizona. 

In 2017 Susie said that she and Greg were not going to get married because they do not want ‘a lifetime of misery and s*** sex’.

Reading off comments on an online article about her, she said: ‘”Where’s the ring, Greg?” From Lauren in London. Not here [pointing at her hand]. We’re not going to get married because we don’t fancy a lifetime of misery and s*** sex.’

In a series of videos on photo-sharing site Instagram, she added: ‘This is my favourite: “She went through half the England rugby squad before she got her claws into Rutherford”. Because that’s half accurate.

 ‘I have had sex with two England rugby players. One was retired. What can I say, I like sportsmen.’ She jokingly added: ‘Yeh, Greg thought I was a virgin until I met him. Big surprise, woman has sex and has a type. Big thighs.’

Speaking to Hello in 2014, the Olympic Gold medallist confessed that the feeling of becoming a father was far superior to any of his sporting achievements.

 He said: ‘The Olympic gold will always be the greatest thing that has ever happened to me in my athletics career, but nothing could come close to how happy I felt when I first saw Milo’s lovely little face. I was crying my eyes out.’

WHAT IS HYPEREMESIS GRAVIDARUM?

Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is defined as severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.

Celebrities who’ve been open about their own battles with HG include:

  • The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton 
  • Kim Kardashian
  • Kourtney Kardashian
  • Debra Messing
  • Kelly Clarkson
  • Tia Mowry
  • Tori Spelling 
  • Amy Schumer 

It affects up to two percent of pregnant women.  

HG symptoms usually appear between weeks four and six and peak at 9-to-13 weeks.

Up to 20 per cent of sufferers experience symptoms up to weeks 14-to-20, however, most have relief in the later stages.

Unlike morning sickness, which affects up to 80 percent of pregnant women, HG causes severe dehydration and prevents sufferers from keeping any food down.

Other symptoms include:

  • Losing five percent or more of their pre-pregnancy weight
  • Reduced urination
  • Headaches
  • Confusion
  • Fainting
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • A rapid heart rate  

Some HG cases require hospitalization where women can receive IV fluids and nutrition. 

HG’s cause was thought to be hormonal, however, research suggests it may be due to genetic variations.
