Sheree_murphy British actress Sheree Murphy, 32, best known for her role in the soap opera Emmerdale, and her husband, Australian footballer (soccer) Harry Kewell, 29, welcomed their third child together on Wednesday, March 19th. Matilda arrived just before Harry flew out to Singapore for football duties. The news was confirmed by sports commentator Simon Hill.

The couple announced the news in October and Sheree celebrated with a baby shower in February. The baby was not due until April. The couple already have two children — son Taylor, 6, and daughter Ruby Heather Toni, 4.

Matilda is becoming a popular celebrity baby name — the most recent Aussie to name their daughter Matilda was Samantha Brown, the daughter of TV presenter David Koch. Additionally, there is Matilda Ledger.

I’m sure Taylor is a girl – so that would make 3! I have 2 and they’re a handful (in the best way)! Congrats Sherree and Harry.

Sarah’s note: Taylor is definitely a boy.

Taylor Jay is their little boy. Honestly I like him most out of the 3. Maybe it’s because TJ looks like Harry while Ruby is more after Sheree…Will they release any pic of Matilda soon? Hope they do. The name Matilda sounds great!
