Teigan and Alex McKinnon welcome baby Harriet Anne into the world

In news that will warm the hearts of all rugby league fans, Teigan and Alex McKinnon have announced the birth of their first child, a daughter named Harriet Anne.

Alex McKinnon had his NRL career cut short in 2014 when he suffered a horrific neck injury during a match against the Melbourne Storm.

The incident left McKinnon a quadriplegic. Since the injury, McKinnon married his partner Teigan. On Monday the pair announced their great news to the world.

Teigan posted a family snap on her Instagram account which she captioned: "When 2 became 3."

Harriet was born the day before the couple's wedding anniversary.
