The shotput queen appeared to be in high spirits and one photo showed her standing by the driver’s door of a car outside the mall smiling while the photo was taken.

In May Dame Adams-Price revealed she was expecting a baby in October with her husband Gabriel Price.

Earlier this month she appeared in public at a funeral of an uncle in Mt Roskill.

She tweeted a photo of her with Gabriel on Tuesday saying her hubby wore the empathy belt.

“Graduated frm our  antenatal class lastnight n @GabrielMCPrice had 2 wear the empathy belt which he handled so well???#notlongtogonow ?‍?‍?”

She told the New Zealand Herald: “We couldn’t be happier. I’ve always wanted to be a mum. This is bigger for me than any gold medal.”

“Gabe and I kept it between us for a very long time. I kind of freaked out a little bit because when you find out you start reading loads of things – and your brain naturally registers all the bad stuff.”
