he boxer and his wife Paris welcomed their sixth child, baby Athena, in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Taking to Instagram today, the Gypsy King asked his followers to pray for his baby girl while she waited to get out of the ICU.

“Please keep baby Athena in your prayers. Paris is doing very well. God protects you.”
Prior to that, the 32-year-old announced his wife had given birth with a social media post, writing: “Please can everyone pray for my baby girl who was born this morning. Athena Fury born 8/8/21. Thank you. God is big.”
Tyson and Paris are also parents of five other children: Venezuela (10), Prince John James (8), Prince Tyson Fury II (4), Valencia Amber (3) and Prince Adonis Amaziah (1).
The couple announced that they are expecting their sixth child together earlier this year, with the boxer sharing the good news on boxing correspondent Gareth A Davies’ YouTube series.
Last February he said: “Paris is pregnant again and the Lord has definitely blessed us with another child and I am very grateful.
“You have a beautiful wife, beautiful children, they are all in good health. It’s the most important thing, you know, your health and your family.
“Nothing else really matters. Your job, your money, your fortune, your career, none of that really matters because you can find another job, you can start snooker, or you can make more money.
“It doesn’t really matter, but the only thing you can’t get back is your family. You can’t make up for lost time and that’s the crazy thing about it.
