FRESH FACED: Fraser-Pryce during a Glasgow press conference in 2014
OLYMPIC GOLD medallist Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce took to social media this morning to announce that she is pregnant.
On her Facebook fan page, she wrote:
“All my focus heading into training for my 2017 season was on getting healthy and putting myself in the best possible fitness to successfully defend my title in London 2017."
“Life is filled with many blessings with God. So here I am thinking about being the greatest mother I can be with my biggest blessing and the promise God made me".
Fraser-Pryce closed her statement with an apt Bible scripture taken from Psalm 127:3:
"Children are a heritage from The Lord, offspring a reward from him".
The athlete will return to competing in 2018.
