It’s been quite the special week for Johnny Sexton as the rugby player and wife Laura have welcomed their third child.

 

The proud dad shared the joyous news in a heartwarming Instagram post.

 

He gushed about the new addition to their family alongside a snap of his newborn daughter, who is the cutest little baby. Just look at those tiny hands!

“Thank you for all the messages! Hard to put into words the last few days,” he wrote.

 

The dad-of-three praised wife Laura: “First of all, I am incredibly proud of my wife Laura and we are delighted to welcome baby Sophie into our family.”

 

He said both Laura and baby Sophie are doing very well, “I look forward to getting them both home to Amy and Luca.”

 

 

The sportsman admitted that he couldn’t believe his luck when he was named club captain in the same week as his daughter’s arrival.

 

"When I didn’t think my week could get any better I was then asked to lead the team I grew up supporting, and dreaming to play for,” the Leinster player wrote.

 

Johnny expressed his gratitude in the emotional post: “This is a huge honour and I am immensely proud. It is a big ask to follow in the footsteps of a man like Isa but it is one that I am looking forward to.”

What an incredible week for the childhood sweethearts, who wed five years ago in Adare Manor.

 

It’s safe to say Johnny is feeling on top of the world.

 

Huge congratulations to Johnny and Laura on the birth of baby Sophie. She is too cute for words.
