Australian batsman, Shaun Marsh and his wife Rebecca have been blessed with a baby boy on Thursday (January 7). Rebecca announced the same on Instagram by posting photos of her newborn along with the previous two kids, Austin and Mabel.
Rebecca, who is a former reporter, also revealed the name of the infant: Ted Geoffrey Marsh, after Shaun’s father and former Australian cricketer, Geoffrey Robert Marsh.
In a series of photos posted by the 32-year-old new mother, Austin,4, is cuddling with his younger brother along with their sister, Mabel, who is one-year-old. She has also posted several stories on her Instagram in which her youngest son can be seen.
Rebbeca captioned, “Ted Geoffrey Marsh 7.01.2021 Welcome to the gang baby boy. We are madly in love.”
Earlier in August, Rebecca announced that she and her husband, Shaun were expecting their third child with an Instagram post. Rebecca, who is an ambassador of Lung Foundation Australia, donned a bikini showing the bump in the beachside family photo and wrote in the caption: ‘Party of five coming up!’
The former Channel Seven reporter and the Aussie batsman tied the knot in a grand wedding ceremony in April 2015 at St Joseph’s Church in Subiaco, Western Australia.
Shaun Marsh overlooked from the Australian team, continues to score runs in the BBL
Shaun Marsh, once a mainstay of Australia’s eleven, last played for his country in the 2019 World Cup in England. He got injured midway through the tournament and had to return home; the left-hander was never picked again despite being amongst heavy runs in domestic cricket.
Marsh last donned the Baggy Green for Australia against India in the 2018-19 home series. He was dropped ahead of the Ashes. The southpaw would have hoped for a recall to the Test side for the 2020-21 series against India owing to his consecutive hundreds in Sheffield Shield just before the 4-match series. However, youngster Will Pucovski was preferred over the 37-year-old.
He continues his rich vein of form to the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL) playing for Melbourne Renegades. Despite Renegades’ poor start to the tournament – 1 win in 7 games – the opener has smashed 4 fifties in those 7 matches.
