A baby in the fast lane

Published : Jul 05, 2003 00:00 IST



THE latest addition to the Marion Jones-Tim Montgomery household is likely to be a boy. The gender of the world's fastest couple's baby had been a well-kept secret until Montgomery let slip the possibility that it was a boy at the American Athletics Championships.

Montgomery was attending a news conference following the 100-metre final with winner Bernard Williams when Williams began talking about his seven-week-old daughter.

Montgomery's girlfriend and triple Sydney Olympic gold medallist Jones is eight months pregnant.

When it was suggested that the two offsprings might someday race against each other, Montgomery quipped, "No, they will date each other. Marion went to the doctor and the baby is already seven pounds," said Montgomery. Jones' due date is July 21.
