Former Australian football family welcomes a baby boy

Former Australian footballer Anthony Stevens and wife Kelli welcomed their second child, River, last week. The couple is rebuilding their relationship and family after a very public breakup back in 2002 when Kelli was discovered having an affair with Anthony’s best friend and team mate.

River, who joins big sister Ayva, 5, was born at the Freemasons Hospital, Melbourne, weighing 3.7kg. Anthony reveals that "A lot of the boys keep telling me I’ve still got time to change the name…but it’s starting to grow on me…I wasn’t sure about the name Ayva at first, but after hearing a few other kids with the name, I think it really suits her."
