Jessica Ennis-Hill has posted a photo of her ever-growing baby bump on Twitter.
In a caption accompanying the image, which shows 28-year-old Jessica standing next to a poster of herself during the Olympics, the mum-to-be joked about the change in her physique.
"My abs look a little different," wrote Jessica, who is seen tenderly holding her bump in the picture.
"Thanks guys for all the lovely messages," she later added after fans posted their good wishes on the social media site.
Jessica's first child is due in July. The news that she was expecting came eight months after the Sheffield-born athlete married her childhood sweetheart, Andy Hill, in the Peak District.
"I have some very unexpected but exciting news to share," announced Jessica. "Andy and I are expecting a baby.
"We are completely overwhelmed, with excitement and a degree of anxiety that I am sure all first time parents will relate to. My plans for 2014 have been completely turned upside down."
