IT'S a birthday Tyson Fury will remember more for the gift of life than "the game of skill" his wife Paris jokingly bought him.
But the couple deserved a little light relief as new baby daughter Athena began her "miracle" recovery after she was "dead for three minutes".
Paris bought the Gypsy King a travel set of chess, posting it on Instagram with the words: "Don't get over-excited for a present this year. Love you."
World heavyweight champ Fury shared other 33rd birthday greetings, including from half-brother Tommy, the Love island star who is also unbeaten as a boxer.
But there were no overblown celebrations as the focus remains on Athena, who was put on ventilators after she was born on Sunday.
Tyson and Paris's sixth child is now off the breathing machines at Liverpool's Alder Hey Children's Hospital.
And Tyson's dad John attributes her improving condition to hero medics.
He told BT Sport: "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 professionalism of Alder Hey Hospital.
"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."
Tyson's trilogy fight with American Deontay Wilder, rearranged for October, is surely barely registering in the Brit's mind right now.
And the Gypsy King himself has kept fans informed of Athena's situation.
He posted: "Update for everyone. Baby Athena is well and has had a stable day off [the] ventilator.
"Thanks to everyone for the prayers, still in the ICU for now.
"Thanks to all the Drs and nurses. God bless you all."
Fury set up a GoFundMe page for the Alder Hey Family House Trust, which at the time of writing had raised £34,937 of its £50k target.
