Olympic gold medallists Laura Trott and Jason Kenny have announced that they are expecting their first baby!

The cycling couple, who got married in secret last year, announced the news by sharing a photo on their Instagram.

The beautiful snap showed two adult bikes in a gorgeous wintry scene and a sunset in the background - and a child's toy bike propped up next to them.

Laura captioned the photo with a heart - how cute!

This comes after one of Laura's tweets stirred up a Twitter storm last August with speculation she may be expecting a baby when she tweeted: "Arghhhh!!!!!! I love him to bits @JasonKenny107 !! Our kids have to get some of these genes right?!"

The four-time Olympic winner's representative, Luke-Lloyd Davies, confirmed the happy news in a statement: "I can confirm that Laura Kenny is indeed pregnant and that she, Jason and their respective families are absolutely thrilled and delighted with the news.

"They very much appreciate all the kind wishes and messages of support they have received already."

Laura followed the photo up with another snap - some ADORABLE mini Adidas trainers.

She captioned it: "👶🏼 will of course only be wearing the best 👟"

Our hearts are melting!

Laura gained the attention of the media when she competed in both the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympics in the cycling team pursuit and the omnium. The 24-year-old won both events both times, and she broke the world record for Team GB's most successful Olympic female competitor in any sport.

She is also the most successful female track cyclist in Olympic history.

And although we warmed to Laura for her achievements, it was watching her relationship with fellow Team GB cyclist Jason Kenny that sealed their places in the nation's hearts.

Jason, 28, has won six Olympic gold medals, and holds the record for joint highest number of Olympic Golds for a British athlete, tying with fellow track cyclist Sir Chris Hoy.

There was an especially sweet moment last year when Jason achieved this momentous record - after he had won Gold in his final ride, the keirin, he rushed straight to Laura.

The two met in 2010, but didn't really like each other straight away. She said: "I didn’t like him, I really didn’t. If he was in a room with me he’d just sit there; he wouldn’t come up to me."

But in London 2012, romance blossomed between the two of them, and they were pictured having a quick kiss behind David Beckham's head whilst watching beach volleyball.
