Shane Warne post sweet tribute to daughter on Instagram

The doting dad shared a hilarious throwback picture.

Known best for his cricket and gossip headlines, Shane Warne says he is ‘just a single dad doing my best.’

The cricket legend posted a throwback photo with daughter Brooke on Instagram to celebrate her 19th birthday.

Captioning the picture, Warne wrote: ‘Love this silly but fun pic with my eldest daughter @brookewarne ! Happy 19th birthday Brookstar, love you so much & am very proud of the young lady you’ve become, have a great day.’

Warne has three children -Brooke, 19, Jackson, 17, and Summer, 14 – with ex-wife Simone Callahan.

The 46-year-old has been counting down the days until he sees his children again this week when they visit him in London. 

Over the years Warne, a social media devotee, has continued to blur the lines between sport and entertainment.

But as Gideon Haigh writes in the The Australian Sporting Heroes Series, ‘nobody cares about the day-to- day where Warne is concerned: what matters is the performance art of his celebrity life.’
