The Olympic gold medal winner / all-round legend confirmed the news on Instagram, sharing a snap of the glowing mum-to-be. Alongside the shot – showing the businesswoman cradling her baby bump – the 33-year-old simply wrote: ‘I just want to say a KING or QUEEN is about to be HERE. @kasi.b.’ While Kasi shared snaps of herself posing on a yacht, in a billowing red dress, surrounded by balloons to announce their news.

‘Our biggest blessing. Our greatest celebration… Our golden child. Coming soon…,’ she wrote alongside a string of photos, taken by Lexon Photography. Even their baby announcement is cool.
