Glenn McGrath and His Wife Sara Are Expecting a Baby!
Australian cricketer Glenn McGrath and his wife Sara Leonardi-McGrath are expecting their first child together. The couple, married since November 2010, revealed the news in The Australian Women's Weekly on Monday morning — timed to perfection with Sara now reaching the end of her first trimester.
Glenn is already father to James, 15, and Holly, 13, his children with late wife Jane McGrath, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2008. Though he underwent a vasectomy in 2003, his relationship with Sara left them both with the desire to add to their family, and through IVF they were able to conceive a child. Of his big news, Glenn says his late wife Jane would be happy:
"I know she would want me to be happy and she'd want her children to be happy and they are," he said. "I have never been one to live in the past. Sara and I are very happy together and the kids are two really happy, normal children and I think, at the end of the day, that's really the true measure of what Sara and I have built together these last five years of marriage."
Congratulations to the happy family!
