Olympic gold champion Greg Rutherford has announced that his partner, blogger Susie Verrill, is pregnant with their second child!

Greg, who was the 9th contestant to leave Strictly in last year's series which was eventually won by sports presenter Ore Oduba, posted the adorable snap alongside a hilarious caption.

He wrote: "'I don't see nothing wrrooonnng, with a little bump and gr... Oh'

"Me and Susie are absolutely thrilled to announce we'll be having our second son in July. Milo can't wait to share all the toys he doesn't like/want with his little brother and likes to ask us daily if he's 'got his own tools?' Yes son, like all good newborns, we're expecting him to arrive screwdriver and hammer in hand."

He then hashtagged #CreatorOfBoys, #HELP, #HELPME and #PLEASEHELPME.

He also posted a Boomerang video with the caption: "I'm going to be a daddy again!!! To another boy... help! HELP ME."

So you're ok then Greg, are you? HA.

Susie posted the same Boomerang video on her Instagram page along with two more gorgeous photos of Greg and Milo pointing to her blossoming bump.

She candidly gave us an insight into the couple's sex life with her caption, which revealed that Susie had become pregnant whilst Greg was performing on Strictly in his VERY fancy costumes.

She wrote: "When we worked out dates, it appeared I fell for Greg's charms around the time he was Paso-ing like a masculine bull fighter. Then we found out we were wrong and it turns out I like my other half best when he's clad in a floral Salsa shirt, looking like a camp, ginger hairdresser named Tristan. We don't need to talk about it further, I've made my peace with it."

The hilarious blogger, who is well-known amongst her followers for her quick wit, then added a bit more seriously: "So happy to announce we'll be welcoming another little boy to our gang in July ❤️ Milo is just going to be such a fantastic big brother; despite telling us he'll share ALL his toys, 'but not my digger/fire engine/monster trucks/football/insert everything he owns here'."

N'aww, what a gorgeous little family!

This comes only a month after Greg's fellow Olympic "Super Saturday" gold winner Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill announced her second pregnancy.

Jess also took to Instagram to share her precious news in March, revealing that she was expecting her second baby with hubby Andy.

The couple are already parents to two-year-old Reggie, who looked very excited at the prospect of becoming a big brother.
