Rebecca Adlington has shared the adorable way her daughter Summer asked for a sibling someday after announcing she is pregnant with her second child.

The 31 year old Olympic gold medalist opened up to OK! online about how difficult lockdown was for her adorable daughter summer, five, as an only child.

The former swimmer, who teamed up with Boots to share advice on boosting family’s immune systems, explained: “It’s been really hard for kids, Summer’s got no siblings so being on her own has been really challenging because she’s been like: ‘I want another kid to play with’ and I’m like: ‘I’m sorry!’”

And Rebecca revealed she would “love” to have a little brother or sister for Summer to play with.

She revealed: “I’d absolutely love more kids and Summer would love that as well.

“She was watching a programme the other day and she said to me: ‘Mummy can you order me a baby sister’ and I was like: ‘That’s not how it works’ but it made me laugh.

“We were watching a TV show and I think she just thinks, because she’s seen me go in lockdown: ‘I’ll order that and then it will come’ she’s got so used to me being like: ‘I’ll order that and then it will come in a few days’ I thought she just thought that as well.

“I was like: ‘No Summer that’s not how it is.‘ It would be slightly easier but no– bless her. I’m sure she would love that as well and I’ve got sisters, I’ve got nephews so she’s got cousins and stuff and she plays so well with them, she’s absolutely ace and I love being a mum so definitely.”

And it appears Rebecca has made her daughter’s wishes come true as she recently announced she is expecting her second child, which will be her first with boyfriend Andrew Parsons.

The former professional swimmer posted a photo of herself, her boyfriend Andrew and her daughter Summer, who she shares with ex Harry Needs, who recently came out as bisexual.

In the Instagram snap, Rebecca is clutching her bump while smiling widely and holding an ultrasound scan image with her beloved boyfriend.

“Going to be a long wait until the end of feb!”
