The couple’s announcement has been met with congratulatory messages from industry mates and fans.
Earlier this month, Caster and Raseboya celebrated their daughter Ora Semenya’s second birthday with cute videos and pictures they both shared on Instagram. Wrote the South African Olympic champion:
Ten little fingers, ten little toes. With love and grace, our family grows.
When they announced that they were expecting their first child together, the couple simply posted images of small shoes and baby rompers.
Caster Semenya’s fans and celebrity friends flooded the comments section with messages of congratulations.
The couple both shared sweet messages for their daughter on her big day. Caster has chosen not to share pictures of her daughter’s face on social media, but that hasn’t stopped her from posting some of their beautiful family moments.
In 2020, Switzerland’s Federal Supreme Court dismissed Caster Semenya’s appeal that challenged 2019’s ruling by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) that female athletes like Semenya, with differences of sexual development (DSD), must take testosterone reducing drugs.
Semenya has maintained that she will not be taking the drugs.
