Robert Gesink has passed his speedy genes on to a next generation. His daughter Anne was born on Wednesday, nine days before Gesink's partner Daisy's due date.
"Good girl, 54cm and 3750gram. Everything went fine!" the proud father tweeted.
Although the girl was born before her due date, her early arrival was not totally unexpected. “I have my phone in my hand,” Gesink said at the Rabobank team presentation earlier this week, awaiting the call from Daisy.
She is the second Rabobank baby born this week. Maarten Wynants missed the presentation due to the birth of his second son the same day.
