Olympic gold medallist Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill is expecting her second child with husband Andy

Olympics champion Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill has announced that she is expecting her second baby!

The track and field athlete made the announcement on her Instagram profile earlier today in a super cute snap with her two-year-old son Reggie.

Jessica had given her little boy a book entitled I'm Going To Be A Big Brother, and captioned the pic: "Someone's going to be a big brother. Another little Ennis-Hill on the way. So happy," tagging her husband Andy.

Jess, who was made a dame in this year's New Year's Honours List, retired from her professional athletic career in October last year after winning silver in the heptathlon event in Rio.

But Jessica, from Sheffield, did not give herself much time off after giving birth, winning the World Championship Gold at Beijing in 2015 and competing a year later in the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Speaking to Cosmopolitan.co.uk last August, Jess slated the idea that new mums should get to the gym straight away.

She said: "There are so many people who are like, 'I need to get back to where I was straight away', and that's just not the case.

"I remember in lots of interviews I did after having Reggie everyone was like 'how did you get your six pack back straight away?' But it didn't happen that quickly.

"It takes time and I think it's really important that mums don't feel like they have to have the baby and then the next week start running and doing sit-ups."
