OLYMPIC cycling hero Sir Chris Hoy has spoken of his pride after his wife and son appeared on television as part of a campaign aimed at supporting parents with premature babies.

One-year-old Callum took a star turn on the popular ITV morning show Lorraine, hosted by Scots presenter Lorraine Kelly, yesterday where he appeared alongside mum Sarra.

Callum was born 11 weeks early, and weighing just two pounds, but new pictures revealed he was fit and healthy as he sat and jumped on his mother’s lap.

In a tweet, she said: “Great morning with Lorraine talking about prematurity. Callum’s enjoying his journey home to see daddy Chris Hoy.”

At around ten in the morning, Chris tweeted his fans a picture of his wife and child on the show, commenting: “Here’s Sarra Hoy and Callum on his TV debut. Proud husband and dad this morning.”

Kelly also tweeted a picture of her holding Callum, adding: “How cute is Callum Hoy?”
