Caster Semenya and wife Violet opened up about their journey to parenthood.

The couple penned heartfelt messages on Tuesday on social media, celebrating their eldest daughter Ora's third birthday.

Violet shared a compilation video set to JP Cooper's, The Only Reason, revealing that the couple had four unsuccessful insemination processes before Ora was conceived.

"God answers in 3 ways. He said yes and gives you what you want. He says no and gives you something better. He says wait and gives you the best. He gave us the best, which is you, my lovely clever princess. We had 4 unsuccessful insemination processes before we conceived you."

She continued: "Happy 3rd birthday to you, my cute little princess; you brought so much happiness to everyone around you, and we love you so much, Oratile the Miracle."


The Olympic medallist, in turn, shared a cute snap of her and Ora with the caption: "3rd year in this universe, and you make our lives marvellous every sec. Thank you, Ora Semenya. May your day be the best ever."


Last month the couple who tied the knot in 2015 welcomed their second child.
