Jessica Ennis-Hill has baby in time for Commonwealth Games
Technically, the welcoming of Reggie Ennis Hill does mean the Olympic athlete can compete...
Jessica Ennis has had a baby boy just in time for the Commonwealth Games, which begin on Wednesday 23 July.
Ennis is one of the event’s many ambassadors and had previously said that she’d miss the games while she awaits for the arrival of her first child.
However, Reggie Ennis-Hill is already here; the athlete shared the news on Twitter this morning.
The Olympic champion married long-term boyfriend Andy Hill at a private ceremony in Derbyshire in May last year.
Ennis has assured fans in January that she will be returning to work after having the baby and will participate in the 2016 Olympics.

"My plans for 2014 have been completely turned upside down, but having had a couple of weeks to think about things from a career point of view I am 100% set on returning to full time athletics once our baby is born and go for a second gold medal at the Rio Olympics in 2016 - that challenge really excites me,” she said.
"But in the short term I will make our baby a priority and enjoy the whole experience as much as possible."
