Collingwood's Scott Pendlebury Has Welcomed His New Baby!
Collingwood captain Scott Pendlebury and his wife Alex have welcomed their baby son this morning.
The couple, who have been together for ten years, named their son Jax.
Collingwood fans have congratulated the pair on the baby.. and are a little excited about a future father-son selection.
The birth was the talk of the town last week after Pendlebury had said he would miss the Magpies match against GWS if Alex went into labour before or during the game.
He told the Herald Sun “When we were younger — we’ve been together since we were 19 — he always said ‘There’s no way I’d miss a game’ and I was like, ‘Whatever, that’s fine’,’’ she said.
“But as soon as we found out I was pregnant and at the first scan, he was like, ‘I am not missing this’.
“He saw the heartbeat, and his whole perception on it changed. I think it was a bit of maturing as well.”
