Double celebrations guaranteed for European Athlete of the Year Farah | 20.04.2012
|Mo Farah of Great Britain.|
Mo and Tania already have a daughter, six-year-old Rhianna, and her siblings are expected to arrive on 25 September
"It's going to be quite a year. I might not show it but it is exciting. I was like 'WHAT?' when we found out," revealed the delighted Farah.
Farah won the World Championships 5000m title last summer and did the long-distance double over 5000m and 10,000m at the 2010 European Athletics Champi-onships.
He is one of the host country's big hopes for a gold medal at this summer's Olympic Games in London.
Farah, 29, first heard the news of Tania's pregnancy via a Skype conversation with his wife during a two-month enforced absence this winter as he trained at altitude in Kenya.
"It was the end of January and I was about to leave to race in Glasgow. When Tania told me she was pregnant, I said: 'Really, are you?' I didn't think about the dates at that point. To be honest, I didn't even know the dates of my races at the Olympics.
"And we didn't know it was twins then. It was only when Tania went for a scan a few weeks ago that we found out; that threw everything into perspective. I was like 'Help. We need to call a nanny!'" joked Farah.
