Mo Farah welcomes twin girls
London, Aug 26 (ANI): Britain's Olympic hero Mo Farah is celebrating his second double success of the summer after his wife Tania gave birth to twin girls on Friday.
The Team GB runner, who took gold in the 10,000m and 5,000m at the London games, described their arrival as "very exciting," and said that he was present when Tania gave birth.
The athlete's wife was pictured heavily pregnant in the Olympic Stadium cheering her husband alongside his stepdaughter Rihanna, before rushing onto the track to embrace him, the Telegraph reported.
She gave birth just under two weeks after her husband's second triumph in the 5,000m in a memorable final in Stratford.
"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.
Asked to compare fatherhood to winning 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."
"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.
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," he said. (ANI)
