Olympic gold medallist Jessica Ennis-Hill has admitted that now since she's expecting her first child with husband Andy, her sports career might have to take a step back.


While speaking at the launch of the Vitality Run Series, the 28-year-old London 2012 heptathlon champion, who is due to give birth in July, told the Daily Star that her priorities have definitely changed this year and she's doing what is right for her baby.

Denying the rumours about her quitting sports, the sports star said that she will continue with light training right up until the baby is born to help her quick comeback, promising to defend her gold medal in Rio 2016.

Though she doesn't know how much take it'll take for her to get back in her best form, she hopes to be a good mum and return to the sport and see what I can achieve in the next few years, she added.
