Australia’s cycling star Cadel Evans, the Tour de France champion in 2011, is adopting a one-year-old Ethiopian boy with his wife, a report said Wednesday.

Evans said on his Twitter on Tuesday that he was “busy baby sitting“.

His wife, Chiara Passerini, also confirmed on her Twitter that the couple had travelled to Ethiopia to adopt a child.

“We came here to bring home our little 12-month boy after months of paperwork,” she said. “We always felt the strong wish to adopt, so we decided to start our family through adoption.”

The 34-year-old Evans was the first Australian to win the Tour de France and the oldest in 88 years.
