Olympic Swimmer Libby Trickett Welcomes A Baby Girl

Libby Trickett and her husband Luke have welcomed their first child.

The 30-year-old retired Olympic swimmer with four Olympic Gold Medals has named her daughter, Poppy Frances Trickett.

She announced the birth on her Instagram with this pic:

She captioned the photo: “Luke and I are so thrilled to announce that our little girl, Poppy Frances Trickett, arrived into the world (a couple of weeks early!) on the 31st of August at 9.23pm! She weighed 2.98kg and was 51cm long. We can’t believe how lucky and blessed we are to have this gorgeous little being in our lives! We are so in love and beyond happy!”

Although, their happy moment is tainted with some sadness as when she announced her pregnancy, she revealed she had suffered a miscarriage to the Daily Telegraph.

“Luke dealt with it in a far more logical and reasonable way but it really knocked me around,” she said at the time.

“I was only eight weeks pregnant but you don’t realise how attached you become to the prospect of motherhood in that time. As an athlete I knew I had to pick myself up and move on, but miscarriage can touch you in a way you might not expect because there’s a possibility of a life.”

Congratulations to Luke and Libby on their new addition Poppy!
