England Test captain Joe Root has announced the birth of his second child with wife Carrie Cotterell. On Wednesday (July 08), morning, Root posted an adorable picture with his new-born resting on his left arm while his right arm was wrapped around his other son Alfred William.

The 29-year-old also extended his support to the English side ahead of the first Test against West Indies, as he wrote: Good luck boys @englandcricket We will be watching and supporting you all the way!”

Root and Cotterell got engaged in early 2016 and married in the cricketer’s hometown of Sheffield two years later. Cotterell used to work at a bar, The Arc, in Headingley, Leeds – the home to Yorkshire County Cricket Club, who Root plays for. The couple got blessed with a baby for the first time in January 2017.
