Premiership footballer tweets new dad pic

Arsenal star Jack Wilshere tweets his joy as he becomes a dad to a baby boy


Premiership footballer Jack Wilshere and his girlfriend Lauren Neal, 22, have welcomed their first baby – a son who they’ve named Archie Jack Wilshere.


The 19-year-old Arsenal player shared his joy with Twitter followers and posted a Beckham-inspired photo of himself tenderly kissing his newborn boy on the forehead.

“The proudest day of my life today! Archie Jack Wilshere was born at 15.06 UK time and weighed 7lb 11oz. I am the happiest man in the world,” tweeted Jack.

Lauren’s pregnancy was revealed after the couple had split, but they soon rekindled their romance and are now looking forward to family life.

Jack will be able to spend some quality time with his new son after fracturing his ankle, meaning he could be out of footballing action until early next year.
