After a vasectomy and two rounds of IVF, the cricketing great has wonderful news to share.
Australian cricket legend Glenn McGrath and his wife, Sara Leonardi, are expecting their first child together.
“We’re adding to our family and we couldn’t be more delighted,” Glenn told the magazine.
Glenn and Sara, who have been married for five years, were never expecting to have this news after Glenn underwent a vasectomy in 2003. But the couple turned to IVF and, after two rounds, finally have the pregnancy they were hoping for.
Glenn’s children from his previous marriage to his late wife, Jane McGrath, who died of breast cancer in 2008, are apparently very excited about the tiny new addition to their family. Glenn was away on cricket tours during the early days of his two children, James, now 15, and Holly, now 13, so he’s vowing to be more “hands on” for this child.
