FORMER Sheffield United and Doncaster Rovers football star Billy Sharp and his partner have had a baby son – just more than a year after losing their first child.
Jade Fair gave birth at a Sheffield hospital today. Leo Sharp was born just before noon, weighing 6lb 9oz.
Billy, who is currently playing for Nottingham Forest, on loan from Southampton, said: “Jade and I are absolutely delighted with the safe arrival of our beautiful boy Leo.
“As everyone knows, we tragically lost our first Son, Luey Jacob, so the birth of Leo makes this special time for our family especially poignant.
“We would like to thank our family and friends for the support they have given us throughout Jade’s pregnancy.
“We are thrilled to become parents and we welcome Leo into our world with lots of love and are looking forward to starting family life together with our Son.”
