Irish Rugby Star Set to Be a Father

The Ireland star will become a dad for the first time this summer.

It was a bad weekend on the pitch, but we suspect Jonathon Sexton is still celebrating this week after going public with the happy news that he and his wife are expecting.

Sexton, 28, and his wife Laura, 27, are childhood sweethearts. Last summer, the pair tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in Adare, Limerick.

The happy couple currently live in Paris where out-half Jonathon plays for Racing Metro.

According to reports, teacher Laura is five months pregnant and is due to give birth this June, close to the couple’s wedding anniversary.
