Cape Town - Cycling's sprint star Mark Cavendish and his Page 3 model girlfriend are expecting a child.

According to The Sun website, Peta Todd, 24, said she is looking forward to the patter of tiny feet with her cycling champion boyfriend.

"I'm four months gone, which means it was conceived in July, during the Tour de France. It's a Tour baby."

Cavendish, 26, became the first British rider to win the Tour de France's coveted Green Jersey at this year's race.

Todd - who has a five-year-old son, Finnbar, from a previous relationship - added: "We haven't found out the sex yet but we will. I think it's a boy because I've already had a boy, but Mark thinks it's a girl.

Todd and Cavendish have been dating for almost a year after meeting in Los Angeles and are now looking to buy a place together in her native Essex.
