“I am the youngest of my family and I have eight nieces and nephews. I have had experience of small children but I have always been able to hand them back," he shared.

He added, “This time it’s different as I won’t be able to do that."

We're sure the sports star will be an incredible dad! Huge congratulations to both Jamie and Sheena!
