Easter celebrations could not have come at a better time for commonwealth champion Mercy Cherono after she gave birth to a baby girl.

Sharing the news with the world, Cherono‘s husband Edmond Ngetich wrote that the baby was the best gift this year.

The best gift from God this Easter. Welcome to the world Princess Kimberly Cherop. To my lovely wife Cherono Ngetich Mercy, congratulations,” wrote Ngetich.

The 26 year old married Ngetich on the 19th of December 2016 at a lavish ceremony soon after Ngetich scooped a whooping Sh10 million jackpot from Mcheza.

On Valentine’s Day, the couple got Kenyans talking with photos of a growing baby pump and many rushed to congratulate the athlete considered the hottest in Kenya.
