Congratulations are in order for Jacob and Hannah Stockdale.
The couple welcomed their first child together this weekend and the rugby star couldn’t have been more proud.
He shared a series of pictures of his daughter, Phoebe in the hospital with delighted new mother, Hannah.
The 25-year-old revealed that they had named their daughter Phoebe Heather Stockdale, adding that she was born on the 5th of August.
“@stockdale.hannah I honestly can’t describe how proud I am of you, you were a superstar and a warrior from start to finish and I feel incredibly lucky to have you as my wife,” the rugby star wrote.
“I am biased, but I think we made the most beautiful wee girl ever…now the fun begins.”
He was instantly inundated with celebratory messages from his teammates, with Bundee Aki writing: “Congratulations to yous both my uce.”
The Ulster Rugby account commented: “Congratulations to you both!! She’s beautiful.”
And Chris Henry gushed: “Fantastic news congratulations guys!!”
Jacob and Hannah tied the knot last year in a lavish wedding at the five-star Magheramorne Estate in Co. Antrim.
Jacob met Hannah in 2007 at Wallace High School but only started dating in 2018.
Jacob proposed in July 2020 sharing the news on Instagram wit a sweet picture of the pair on the beach. He captioned the post, “Didn’t think when I met her in 2007 at Wallace High School I’d one day be asking her to be my wife! But I’m so happy I met her and I couldn’t think of a better person to spend the rest of my life with.”
The couple announced they were expecting their first child in March of this year with a picture of the pair on the beach, with the caption: “Things are about to get a whole lot busier.”
Congratulations Hannah and Jacob!
