NRL star Johnathan Thurston has welcomed another baby girl into the world.

NRL star Johnathan Thurston and his wife Samantha have “completed” their family, welcoming their third child on Wednesday morning.

Their daughter, whom the pair have named Lillie Rose, is the third little girl to join the Thurston family.

Making the announcement with a collage of images on Instagram, Samantha told her followers that “our hearts are full and our family complete”.

The Thurstons’ older daughters, three-year-old Frankie and Charlie, 2, were snapped cuddling their new little sister, who weighs 2.83kg (six pounds, four ounces).


The four-time Dally M winner secretly married his longtime girlfriend Samantha Lynch on Hamilton Island in The Whitsundays in November 2015.

Just a month before, an image of the 33-year-old lovingly clutching his daughter Frankie after the North Queensland Cowboy’s NRL Grand Final win went viral.
