SIR Chris Hoy and his wife Lady Sarra have welcomed their second child.
Chloe Rose Carol Hoy was born earlier this week, with her delighted father taking to Twitter to share the news.
The former Olympic cyclist tweeted: “Delighted to announce the safe arrival of Chloe Rose Carol Hoy this week! Born at 36 weeks, 4lbs 14oz, Sarra and Chloe doing really well.”

Lady Hoy later thanked staff at the hospital who helped deliver Chloe.
She said: “We owe a huge debt of thanks to our local hospital & amazing staff, who gave me the most incredible care, while our family of 3 became 4.”
Earlier this year, she admitted she was nervous about having her second child.
Son Callum was delivered 11 weeks early in 2014 after Sarra had been diagnosed with preeclampsia and HELLP Syndrome.
In April, she told Lorraine Kelly on her ITV show: “I would never have thought that I would have ventured down the road again, but actually time’s a great healer and actually we’re so excited about it.”
Lady Hoy is an ambassador for the Bliss charity, which aims to help thousands of newborns who need lifesaving care.
