An Olympic champion from England has posted touching pictures online of his premature baby’s amazing progress since he was born 11 weeks prematurely. The pictures of his premature baby show the humanity of unborn children late in pregnancy, where are are subject to legal abortions in many countries.

Hoy documented his son’s first days in the neonatal intensive care and how he progressed enough to finally go home. Hoy is an eleven-time world champion and six-time Olympic champion track cyclist who is the most decorated Olympic cyclist of all time.

The six-time Olympic champion became a dad for the first time in October but the baby was born prematurely as his wife Sarra gave birth at 29 weeks. Their son finally came home earlier this month. This weekend, on what should have been his son’s due date, Chris took to Twitter to show baby’s progress.
He posted then and now pictures, below, saying, “Amazing how far he’s come since then, we’re so thankful.”

Last month, Sir Chris proudly tweeted his first picture of baby Callum in his hospital cot. He wrote: ‘Thanks for all your messages for Callum. He’s doing well so far and says hi!’

Mrs Hoy retweeted the photograph and told her followers: ‘The messages of support we’ve received about Callum mean so much.
‘From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. They have really, truly helped.’

Sir Chris had previously shared a picture just showing Callum’s tiny hand clutching his finger and alongside it he wrote: ‘Although v. early days for wee Callum, he’s doing well as is Sarra. Huge thanks to incredible medical staff.’
