Some very BIG news for this Irish rugby star and his gorgeous wife!


Irish rugby star Jonny Sexton and his wife are reportedly celebrating the birth of their son today!

Born at 7lbs, the new arrival is said to be happy and healthy.

The couple have not yet chosen a name for their first born – but we just can’t wait to hear what they decide on!

The Sextons, who are based in Paris, confirmed Laura’s pregnancy in February.

Last month, Jonny said he would be tempted to return home due to his growing family.

“It’s a family decision now, we’ve a baby on the way, me and Laura, and it’s very much a case of ‘let’s see how that goes’ – having a kid here and not having grandparents, aunties and uncles to look after it.

“We’ll just have to see how that goes for the next few months, all being well, touch wood, we’ll see what the options are then,” he said.

Jonny and Laura first met in Rathgar Tennis Club in Dublin when they were just 13 years old.

The couple tied the knot last July in an intimate ceremony in Adare, Co Limerick.

We couldn’t be happier for this lovely couple!
