Tyson Fury welcomes baby daughter Athena home after intensive care battle

Paris Fury has confirmed to delighted followers that 11-day-old daughter Athena has arrived at the family home for the first time having left hospital following a stay in intensive care.

Tyson’s wife gave birth to the couple’s sixth child on August 8, but the family remained in hospital with the baby placed in intensive care and on a ventilator.

But almost two weeks after the birth, the beaming couple were able to celebrate Athena’s arrival at home, with a series of pictures posted on social media.

Baby Athena is pictured in the middle of a beaming Fury family, with her siblings Venezuela, 10, Prince John James, eight, Prince Tyson II, four, Valencia, three, and Prince Adonis Amaziah, 16 months all looking delighted to have her home.

The parents have attempted to keep followers updated with Athena’s progress, asking for her to remain in their thoughts, after she was born with serious health complications.

Earlier this week, Tyson posted that Athena had come out of intensive care, while explaining that she should be coming home soon.

Tyson, 33, has started a GoFundMe page to help raise funds for Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool, such has been the level of care provided by doctors and nurses.

Fury’s father John explained to BT Sport that Athena had been given life-saving treatment after being dead for three minutes.

He said: "It's been a bit of a white knuckle ride, we've had a lot to deal with.

"But we've come out on the other side due to the professionalism of Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool, they're the best children's hospital in the country if not the world.

"They've been really magnificent, they've really saved her life because she was dead for three minutes and they brought her back, it's onwards and upwards from today."

As Athena’s condition appeared to be improving, the WBC champ has been back out on the road training for his upcoming decider with American Deontay Wilder.

In a video alongside his dad John, Tyson told fans: “Four mile run there with my dad in the park here in Liverpool.
