Retired Australian rugby player Andrew Johns announced at the Dally M Awards that he is expecting his first child with his wife, Catherine. Andrew shared that the couple are "over the moon" about the upcoming March arrival and have already "told our families and they are all really stoked about it as well." However, according to the 34-year-old, the "most excited" is his 9-year-old son Samuel, from a previous relationship, who just "couldn’t get the smile off his face when we told him."

Andrew and Catherine — who have been together six years — were married ten months ago.

Ohhhhhhh im so happy for them.

He is such a nice person and was an amazing rugby league player. Unfortunately he had to retire due to injury. Loved watching him when he was playing in the RFL in England.

Congrats Joey, Sam will make a great big brother. I hope Catherine has an easy time of it.

By the way, Joey played Rugby League, not Rugby (Rugby is what we call Rugby Union over here)
