DESPITE missing the currently underway Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, popular South African Olympic champion, Caster Semenya, has a lot to celebrate and be grateful about.

Today, Caster announced on social media that she and her wife Violet Raseboya, who is also a multi-medalist runner, are expecting their second child.

The couple that got married in 2015 made the announcement on social media with a photo of a pregnant Violet and their little baby girl Ora, who just turned two years a few weeks ago.

In the message, Caster wrote: ‘’Ten little fingers, ten little toes. With love and grace, our family grows. This precious soul that God decided to bless us with. We all cannot wait to meet YOU!"

The two-time Olympic gold medalist, who will not be able to defend her women’s 800m title, was unable to qualify due to an ongoing court battle with the International Amateur Athletic Federation (IAAF) over their 2018 testosterone level rule on female athletes competing in distances between 400 meters and 1500m. She won a World Championship in 2011 and a silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics.
