Belarusian biathlete and three-time Olympic champion Darya Domracheva is expecting a baby with Norwegian sports star Ole Einar Bjørndalen.
“I have a close relationship with Darya, and it is evolving. We are a couple, and we expect our baby to come in October. As you can see, we have everything well-planned,” Bjørndalen, an eight-time Olympic champion, said at today’s press conference.
Domracheva and Bjørndalen often went out together, but they never advertised their relationship. Earlier the Norwegian was married to Belgian biathlete Nathalie Santer, but after six years of marriage they got divorced in 2012.
Darya Domracheva wants to re-enter the big sports next January after their baby is born, the Belarusian biathlete said on her website.
