“Poppy Alice Burgess,” Sam captioned on the pic posted to his Instagram. “My two girls doing extremely well. My everything.”

Phoebe, 27, has been joking that she’s been ready to give birth for the last few weeks!

On Tuesday, the blonde beauty shared a Snapchat of herself looking heavily pregnant captioning it: “10000 weeks.”

Poppy is the first child for Phoebe and Sam, who tied the knot last year. And the cute couple say they reckon they already know what their little one’s personality is going to be like!

“We’re going to have a cheeky and competitive child,” Phoebe recently told Stellar magazine.

And Sam, who plays for the South Sydney Rabbitohs, agreed with her.

“Phoebe is extremely competitive and I’m exactly the same,” he told the publication.

“We get on like a house on fire, except when there’s sport involved and we’re competing against each other.”

Don’t you reckon Phoebe looks flawless in her post-birthing pic? Did you know that it’s becoming more common for women to get dolled up for snaps during and after birth?
