The first photo of Tyson and Paris Fury’s newborn daughter Athena has been shared after their little girl spent her first hours in intensive care.
The heavyweight boxer from Wythenshawe and his wife welcomed their sixth child on Sunday and Tyson asked fans for their ‘prayers’ as Athena was taken to ICU.
Paris has since posted a snap of Athena on her Instagram Stories after she came off her ventilator.
And she thanked her followers for their messages of support.

“Thank God she is doing well, and thank you for all your messages, thoughts and prayers,” she captioned the photo.
In the image adorable Athena is bundled up under a blanket with a cute bunny on it.
And doting dad Tyson got some cuddles in with Athena as he shared an update on how she’s doing.

And he launched Athena’s WBC Belt Fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House.
“She baby is doing fantastic. A lot, lot better,” he said.
“She’s off the ventilator she’s doing really good. Look, she’s lovely.”
Tyson has opened a GoFundMe fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House in Liverpool, which provides accommodation for families while their children are treated at the hospital.
