PROUD CASTER SEMENYA SHARES BABY PHOTO

Last year Semenya shared a heartwarming Instagram post announcing that she and Raseboya were expecting their second child together.

In the photo, the couple posed for a picture showing off Raseboya’s baby bump. 

“With love and grace, our family grows. This precious soul that God decided to bless us with. We all can’t wait to meet YOU!” wrote Semenya.

The 31-year-old runner shared the first photo of their newborn on 26 June, leaving tweeps gushing over the baby! 

The picture was simply captioned “Joy” with a black heart emoji.

Reacting to the photo, tweeps shared heartfelt messages. 

“We already know those little feet are going to be on the track soon,” wrote one tweep.

“This is easily one of the most beautiful pictures to exist, what!?” wrote another.  

“One thing about Caster and Vio, they’ll have a baby, okrrr!”

VIOLET’S BIRTHDAY MESSAGE TO CASTER 

In January, Raseboya took to Instagram to celebrate their 13-year anniversary and five-year marriage anniversary. 

“Thank you for holding me through everything and anything and may your birthday be as special as you are to me in every way. Enjoy your day and I love you so so much,” she wrote.

The road ahead for Caster Semenya

Semenya, who raced at the African Athletics Championships in Mauritius earlier this month, will not be representing South Africa at the World Athletics Championships in Oregon from 15-24 July 2022.

In an interview with BBC Sport Africa, Semenya, who is barred from competing in her preferred 800m race by World Athletics’ differences of sexual development (DSD) rules introduced in 2019, said the World Championships this year wasn’t really one of her targets.

She revealed that she has a four-year plan to move to road running, but that it would take time to reach her peak.

 “It takes four years for a distance runner to be great. I’m trying to figure it out. It’s like a baby trying to learn how to walk,” she told the BBC.
