Kiwi rugby star Dan Carter is a father again!

The former All Black took to Instagram this morning to reveal that he and his wife, Honor Carter, welcomed their third child together on January 14.

The couple are proud parents to another boy, who they've named Rocco George Carter.

Sharing a stunning black and white photo of their two eldest sons watching over a hospital crib, Dan wrote: "Marco & Fox are proud new brothers. We are excited to announce the arrival of Rocco George Carter, born 14th January. We are so grateful and couldn’t be happier."

The couple – who married in 2011 - announced their family was set to expand in August last year, also sharing the exciting news on social media.

"Family is the most important thing in the world to me. With Honor being the best and mode dedicated wife/mother, it excites me to know we are adding to our family," Dan wrote alongside a sweet snap of he, Honor and their two sons Marco, 5, and  Fox, 3, on the beach, looking out towards Auckland’s Rangitoto Island.

Honor shared the same photo to her account, writing: "Very excited another littler Carter will be added to our family soon."

While Honor is no longer playing hockey, Dan is set to continue his rugby career in Japan after signing a 2-year Kobelco Steelers contract.

And Dan isn’t the only New Zealand rugby legend to have welcomed a new arrival into his family – just last month Richie McCaw and his wife, Gemma welcomed their daughter Charlotte Rose McCaw into the world.

We’re sure Honor will have lots of baby tips to share with her former Black Sticks alumni.
