Brisbane midfielder Lachie Neale and his wife Jules have welcomed their first child into the world on Wednesday, baby Piper Rose Neale.
Jules announced Piper's arrival on Instagram on Thursday in a heartfelt post about their daughter.
“And just like that all the years of dreaming, wishing, longing don’t seem to matter because here you are in my arms after all,’’ Jules wrote on Thursday.
Lachie also shared the exciting news on Instagram, along with a beautiful message to his daughter and wife.
"Welcome to the world Piper Rose. You’re now my world. @jules_neale you’re a star" the Brownlow medalist wrote.
Piper is the Lions latest little cub after Cal Ah Chee and Keidean Coleman also became first-time Fathers earlier this year.
There'll be no shortage of Father-Son-and-Daughter picks for the club in 2039 and 2040.
Congratulations Jules and Lachie!
