Con­grats flow on baby news

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

AUS­TRALIAN sport­ing greats and celebri­ties have taken to so­cial media to con­grat­u­late cricket cap­tain Michael Clarke and wife Kyly on their baby news.

The duo an­nounced on Twit­ter that they are ex­pect­ing their first child, with the sports­man say­ing he “can’t wait to meet baby Clarke”.

Aus­tralian bowl­ing leg­end Shane Warne was among the first to pass on con­grat­u­la­tions.

“Con­grats guys! So happy for you both” Warne tweeted yesterday.

Clarke’s for­mer team­mate Glen McGrath is equally as ex­cited. “Con­grat­u­la­tions guys, well done. @ saram­c­grath11 & I are so happy for you both,” McGrath wrote on Twit­ter.

Tracy Be­van, the wife of for­mer Aus­tralian crick­eter Michael Be­van and di­rec­tor of the McGrath Foun­da­tion, tweeted: “Huge con­grats @ Ky­lyClarke @ MClarke23 on your baby news! I can’t wait to meet him/ her”.

To­day Show co- host Lisa Wilkin­son and for­mer Miss Uni­verse Aus­tralia Rachael Finch also chimed in, with Finch say­ing “Mas­sive con­grat­u­la­tions to the gor­geous @ Ky­lyClarke & @ MClarke23 on bubby news! So ex­cit­ing.”

Wilkin­son took the chance to link the an­nounce­ment to the im­pend­ing Ashes se­ries.

She tweeted: “On this 1st day of the # Ashes huge con­grats to @ MClarke23 & the fab­u­lous @ Ky­lyClarke on news that they’re ex­pect­ing their first child.”

Clarke cap­tained the Aus­tralian cricket team last night in the first day of the Ashes se­ries.

The Clarkes have not an­nounced a due date or the gen­der of the baby.

So­cial media has been a favourite for the cou­ple in an­nounc­ing fam­ily news, Clarke break­ing the news of his nup­tials to Kyly in 2012 via Twit­ter.
