Dame Valerie Adams gives birth to second child

New Zealand shot put legend Dame Valerie Adams has given birth to her second child.

In a tweet, the two-time Olympic gold medallist announced the arrival of Kepaleli Tava Sydney Adams-Price into the world, a baby brother to Kimoana.

The arrival came a little early; Adams' due date was April.

Dame Valerie, who was training as recently as February, previously said she wanted to compete at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics - her fifth games appearance if she makes it.

In December, the 34-year-old said she felt she would still have enough time to prepare for Tokyo after the birth of her boy in April.

"I have fifteen months to train up for Tokyo which is great," Dame Valerie said.

"When I had my first baby I had six months from woe to go to get to Commonwealth Games."

"It's doable, we've got the blueprint ready to rock and roll so we'll see how it goes but I am looking forward to the challenge."

Last year, Dame Valerie won silver at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
