Biathlete Daria Domracheva expecting baby in October 2016

From Olympic champion to mother. On April 5, it became known that the famous Belarusian biathlete Daria Domracheva is going to have a baby. This fact was revealed by another star biathlete Ole Einar Bjørndalen, who is the child’s father. Later, Domracheva herself confirmed this information on her official site.

It is expected that the baby will be born in October.

Ole Einar Bjoerndalen, biathlete:
I have long had a good relationship with Daria. Recently, they have continued to evolve and eventually we are going to become parents. We are looking forward to it!

Darya Domracheva, biathlete:
Our life is multifaceted. And so it is important to timely achieve your most important goals during lifetime! 30 years is a perfect age for a child's birthday. This autumn I will become a mother! This is a planned event and we welcome it. Today, this is the most important thing that happens in my life!

It is unknown whether Domracheva will continue her career. She has missed the latest season because of an illness and she was actually planning to make up for the lost time.

Darya Domracheva, biathlete:
I keep exercising moderately under the supervision of specialists and will try very hard to return to racing in January 2017. Of course, I guess it will not be easy, but I am ready to work seriously, step by step, and return to good competitive shape. I already miss the spirit of big biathlon!

Rumors about the relationship between the two biathletes started to circulate in the media three years ago.

The Belarusian said back then that she was willing to keep her personal life aside from media. The biathlete did not go further except for saying that "the only official information about my private life will be a message about my marriage."
