He’s had a colourful career as one of Australia’s highest-profile sporting stars but nothing compares to Jarryd Hayne’s latest foray – fatherhood.
The Gold Coast Titans fullback has posted an adorable photo of his new baby daughter, cuddled up on his chest with the sweetest caption ever.
Last week the Daily Mail reported Jarryd became a dad last week with his rumoured girlfriend Amellia Bonnici. The birth of his daughter caps off a busy 2016 for the 28-year-old NRL star.
He returned from a stint playing NFL in the US and then attempted (and failed) to represent Fiji in Rugby Sevens at the Olympics. He then signed a two-year deal with the Gold Coast Titans.
Jarryd has also had several controversial moments throughout his career and personal life. In 2008 he was allegedly involved in an incident at Sydney’s Kings Cross when a gunshot was fired in his direction.
Tender Dad’s Nod To Faith
The code-hopping sporting star is believed to have met the mother of his baby earlier this year on Instagram.
Jarryd’s post revealing his new baby daughter is also a nod to his faith. With the caption ‘All praise to god above, for he never makes mistakes!!!! #daddysgirl’.
The name of Jarryd’s ‘daddy’s girl’ is yet to be revealed. To read more visit the Daily Mail.
