Greg Rutherford Shares Photos Of New Baby Son Milo


Greg Rutherford is the happiest new dad in town if these photos are anything to go by!

The Olympian and his girlfriend, Susie Verrill, became first time parents in October when Susie gave birth to baby Milo.

After a blissful few weeks with their newborn, Greg and Susie have finally shared photos of Milo in the new issue of Hello! magazine.

Speaking to the magazine, Greg admitted he cried his eyes out when Milo was born.

"'The Olympic gold will always be the greatest thing that has ever happened to me in my athletics career, but nothing could come close to how happy I felt when I first saw Milo's lovely little face," he said.

"I was crying my eyes out. Milo's already bringing me luck. He's in my thoughts when I'm going to jump and that brings a great deal more emotion. It's been wonderful to end the year on a high."

Milo's full name is (wait for it...) Milo Andrew William James Nugget Rutherford. But before you scratch your head at the choice of 'Nugget', Greg explained the special meaning it has for himself and Susie.

"William and James after our granddads," Greg explained. "And Nugget is the name we gave him when Susie was first pregnant. We've even put it on the birth certificate!"

Congratulations Greg and Susie!

The full interview appears in the new issue of Hello! magazine, out now.
