Earlier this week, when the was postponed midway, Cummins and the rest of the Australian contingent moved to Maldives as a transit point on their journey back home.
 
While he waits to get on that flight back to Sydney, there is more good news for Cummins’ fans.
 
Becky Boston, the speedsters long-time girlfriend who he got engaged to last year in February, took to Social Media to announce the couple were expecting the birth of their first child this spring.
 
“I can’t hide this happiness any longer!! Baby Boston Cummins will be joining us in Spring we are SO excited to meet you!!! @patcummins30” - she wrote alongside a photo of herself on Instagram.
