Farah, who is already stepfather to Rihanna, dedicated his 5,000m and 10,000m gold medals to the unborn pair after he topped the podium in London. “My wife has been holding on so long and it’s great that she held on this long and didn’t give birth on the track (at the Olympics),” he said at a press conference this morning.
Asked to compare fatherhood to wining Olympic gold, he said: “It’s completely different. It’s out of your control, it was weird, but as a father I’m very proud. To have three kids in the family is going to be exciting.” He added: “If my wife has another two more twins boys, I’ll be a happy man. It runs in the family, so maybe that’s why we’re having twins.” He added that Rihanna was “very excited” by the new arrivals.
They have yet to decide on names, he said, but he planned to get their names inscribed onto the medals once they have. Asked whether he had shown the newborns his medals, he said: “No I didn’t, but they are waiting. “I am actually going to get their names on it, once we’ve figured out something with the medals – one on each. And then whatever one was born first gets the 10,000m and the other gets the 5,000m one.”
Congrats to the couple!!!
