The Brisbane Lions are delighted to announce that Simon Black and his wife Catherine welcomed a healthy baby boy into the world at 11:54pm last Friday 3 January.

Lucas Black weighed in at 8 pound 2 ounces, and both mother and baby are doing well.

Lucas is the second child for the Black family, with his big brother Lachlan celebrating his second birthday late last year after being born on 17 September 2011.

The entire Club congratulates Black and his family on the arrival of their latest bundle of joy.

Lions fans will no doubt be licking their lips at the prospect of having two sons of Simon Black potentially lining up for the Club sometime in the future.

Black and his family will appear in Melbourne next month for a one-off luncheon to celebrate his illustrious 322-game career. Limited tickets are still available here.  

Jonathan Brown and Daniel Merrett are also expecting ‘new arrivals’ at different stages during the 2014 AFL season.
