Tyson Fury Reveals Newborn Baby Athena Is In Intensive Care

Tyson Fury Reveals Newborn Baby Athena Is In Intensive Care

Tyson Fury has revealed his newborn baby daughter is in intensive care.


The boxer’s wife Paris, 31, gave birth to Athena on Sunday, and on Monday morning, Tyson, 32, took to Instagram to update his fans on the health of their sixth child.

He wrote:

Massive thanks for all the messages and support. The baby is in a stable position and doing well – hopefully, she comes out of ICU today. Please keep baby Athena in your prayers. Paris is doing great. God bless.

The day before, Tyson wrote:

Please can everyone pray for my baby girl who was born this morning. Athena Fury born 8/8/21.

The birth of their baby girl comes after Paris endured lengthy two-day labour. The new mother-of-six took to Instagram to re-share a video on Saturday that her husband took of them both eating what appeared to be spicy food – in an attempt to speed on the birth of Athena.

Her caption read:

He is dangerous with a camera to think he’s bored now we nearly at the end of day 2 in here and still no little girly.

Paris also posted a photo of herself on her Stories from Friday when she arrived in hospital.

The expectant mother posed in a black Calvin Klein T-Shirt alongside an array of what looked like a Louis Vuitton duffle bag and a small suitcase, as well as a Harrods shopper behind her.

She captioned the pre-birth pic: ‘Landed here yesterday morning’.

Paris then posted a video of her husband in the labour ward watching a game of boxing whilst they waited for the arrival of their little one.

The couple is already parents to Venezuela, 10, Prince John James, eight, Prince Tyson II, four, Valencia, three, and Prince Adonis Amaziah, 16 months.

They announced they were expecting their sixth child together in February. Tyson shared the happy news on boxing correspondent Gareth A Davies’ YouTube series.

He revealed the news while gushing about his family values, telling Davies:

Paris is pregnant again and the Lord has blessed us definitely with another child and I’m very thankful. Got a beautiful wife, beautiful kids, they’re all healthy. That’s the most important thing, you know, your health and your family. Nothing else really matters. Your job, your money, your wealth, your career, none of that really matters because you can get another job, you can start snooker or you can go make more money. It doesn’t really matter but the one thing you can’t get back is your family. You can’t get back time lost and that’s the crazy thing about it all.

Paris, who shares a sprawling family home with Tyson and their children in Morecambe, has been forging ahead with her own career over the past year, landing a role as a panelist on Loose Women last year.
