Who is Harry Aikines-Aryeetey’s family?

There isn’t much information on Harry’s family since he has kept his private life under wraps. His social media mainly focuses on his rigorous routine and training as a sprinter.

On two occasions though, he did address personal affairs. The athlete announced to his fans that his wife, Lauren Aikines-Aryeetey (née Cooper) was pregnant with their first child. Her Instagram is on private.

In September 2020, the couple welcomed their baby daughter Aubreé-Isla. He entered the farm six weeks after the birth of his child and revealed the challenge of leaving so soon.

He said:

It was quite difficult being away to be fair, because through that stage, they are growing quite a bit, their face changes by the day. So it kind of got me ready for what I need to do because obviously, come the season when I do the Olympics, I’ll be away as well.
