Former rugby league star Alex McKinnon has announced he is expecting a baby with his wife Teigan.
The news comes just months after the pair got married in an intimate ceremony.
'Baby Mckinnon coming soon,' the 26-year-old ex-NRL player wrote in an heartfelt Instagram post.
Mckinnon was left paralysed after a shocking on-field incident.
Teigan has previously discussed Alex’s desire to have children.
‘One of the first things Alex wanted to know after the accident was whether we could have kids one day, because he didn’t want to miss out on that,’ she said after the tragic incident.
'So we went to see a fertility specialist and it seems there’s a great chance, because he still creates sperm.’
