Allyson Felix is rumored to be expecting her first child. This has fans wondering about the identity of the child’s father.
One of the fastest female sprinters in the world is in a longtime relationship with fellow sprinter Kenneth Ferguson. Even though the two have been an item since 2005, rumors surrounding their alleged marriage are simply not true.
Earn The Necklace indicated that the Felix and Ferguson have been together for so long that most people mistake them for a married couple. There is no official confirmation that the two are married or if Felix is actually pregnant.
The American track-and-field star is currently competing in the 2016 Rio Olympics to try and expand her medal tally. She presently owns four Olympic gold medals and three Olympic silver medals. She has also won golds at the World Championships, World Indoor Championships, Pan American Games and World Youth Championships.
Her beau isn’t as accomplished as she is, but that hasn’t hindered their relationship in any shape or form. Ferguson recently congratulated Felix on social media for bagging the gold medal in the 200-meter women’s track final. “Still speechless as I sit here in the stadium!” he said on Twitter. “So proud of you@allysonfelix God is good.”
Ferguson specializes in sprinting and hurdling. His primary events are the 400-meter, 110- and 400-meter hurdles. He won gold medals in the aforementioned events at the Pan American Junior Championships back in 2003. He has since competed at the USA Junior Championship, USA Outdoor Championship and World Junior Championship.
Meanwhile, Player Wives speculated that Felix may have had a brief relationship with NBA superstar LeBron James before meeting Ferguson. Felix was LeBron’s date during the 2003 ESPY Awards. Imagine what could have been had the best basketball player in the world ended up with arguably the top women’s sprinter on the planet.
But alas, that love story never panned out. LeBron married his high school sweetheart Savannah Brinson back in 2013. The couple already had two sons before tying the knot. They welcomed their bouncy baby girl in October 2014.
