Amy Williams opens up about becoming a mother

He’s already following in her sporty footsteps.

Olympic gold medallist Amy Williams has revealed her newborn son is already following in her sporty footsteps.

Amy, who won gold in the skeleton at the 2010 Winter games, and her husband Craig Ham welcomed their first baby, Oscar Nash, last month.

The athlete-turned-television presenter told Hello! magazine: “It’s overwhelming … you instantly know that you would do absolutely anything to protect your child.

“There are massive highs and lows within the space of one day.”

She added: “He’s got large hands and when he spreads them out it already looks like he could hold a rugby ball

“On day two he could lift his head off my chest and I was like, ‘Should he be able to do that already?’”

Amy, who will cover next year’s Winter Olympics in South Korea, said she is already thinking about returning to work.

“I’m never going to turn down a job. If I was offered one next week and my mum was free to come with me, I would take it.

“I’m always looking for challenges. I want to do things that I’m passionate about and keep fit and active.”
