Mercy Cherono, one of the most beautiful Kenyan athletes, is the latest mother in town.

Mercy and her businessman husband Edmond Ngetich welcomed their bundle of joy on Saturday, and the excited father took to social media to share the great news.

"Kimberly CheropThe best gift from God this Easter. Welcome to the world, princess. And to my lovely wife Cherono Ngetich Mercy, congratulations!" read his message.

The two-time world junior champion in the 3000 metres (2008, 2010) and her husband, have been living quiet, married life, and photos of Mercy Cherono's baby bump surfaced on Valentine's Day.

Last year, Cherono travelled to Nigeria to seek divine intervention in her marriage and career, and it seems, after being prayed for by Prophet TB Joshua, all has been well.

"My husband advised me to come here for my career breakthrough because I was having problems with my career and marriage, too. And the man of God prayed for me and delivered me from bondage," Mercy Cherono told the congregation in Nigeria at Scoan.

Fans of Mercy Cherono have congratulated her on giving birth, and we wish her all the best as she starts her motherhood journey.
