Baby news for Australian sports couple.

Could a future cricket prodigy be on the way?

Cricketer Shane Watson and his wife, leading sports journalist, Lee Furlong, 28, are expecting another baby Confidential has confirmed.

Furlong’s manager confirmed, “Lee and Shane are very excited to be extending their family”.

The couple first met through mutual friends in 2006 and married four years later on the Central Coast. They welcomed their first baby, Will,  on March 14, 2013.

Lee, a leading sports journalist and television presenter, told The Grace Tales she adores being a mother: “My husband and I always talk about how lucky we are. It’s an unconditional love, which I had never felt before. I also have never enjoyed anything in my life as much as being a mum and caring for my son.”

“Motherhood has taught me a new found confidence that I never knew before having my son. Before I had Will I would at times get caught up worrying about the little insignificant things in life, but now it’s a whole different story. Will has definitely helped me to realise that it’s the simple things in life that are the most beautiful.”

The family tend to travel and live out of a suitcase up to “10 months every year”while Watson is playing cricket, so no doubts the new bub is going to make the family adventures all the more interesting.
