Tyson Fury’s daughter Athena is back in intensive care, two days after she was born.
The boxer and his wife Paris welcomed their sixth child, a baby girl, on Sunday August 8, with Tyson asking his followers to ‘pray for my baby girl’.
Athena was initially placed in the ICU when she was born, but had come off her ventilator on Monday and was ‘stable’.
However, on Tuesday, Tyson told fans that his daughter had returned to the ICU, and asked: ‘Please keep her in your prayers.’
The 32-year-old posted a picture of the newborn lying asleep while attached to numerous wires.
Molly-Mae Hague, who is dating Tyson’s brother Tommy Fury, was among those sharing their thoughts with the family, writing on Instagram: ’A very strong baby girl. She’s absolutely perfect and I’m obsessed with her name!

‘Sending all the love in the world to @ParisFury1 and @GypsyKing101 right now.’
Amid his daughter’s health battle, the two-time world heavyweight champion is raising money for Alder Hey Family House Trust, which runs Ronald McDonald House at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and helps provide rooms for the families of sick children.
Tyson is raffling off two signed WBC belts, and a GoFundMe has already raised nearly £28,000 for the trust.
The star had revealed he was to be a dad for the sixth time in February, telling boxing reporter Gareth A Davies that he was ‘thankful’.
‘I have a beautiful wife, beautiful kids, we’re all healthy,’ he said.
‘That’s the most important thing you know, your health and your family. Nothing else really matters.
‘Your job, your money, your wealth, your career, none of that really matters because you can get another job, you can start a new career, you can go make more money, it doesn’t matter. The one thing you can’t get back is your family.’
Tyson and Paris have been married since 2009 and are parents to daughters Venezuela, 10, and two-year-old Valencia Amber, and sons Prince Adonis, one, Prince Tyson, three and Prince John James, seven.Credit: Original article published here.
