More sporting baby news today – this time from the Australian rules football code.

Hawthorn star Sam Mitchell, and his wife Lyndall, have had twin girls called Scarlett and Emmerson. Although the twins were born in March, their births have only just been formally announced in the newspapers as Scarlett developed severe medical problems after her birth. It’s been a tough time for Sam and Lyndall, but they have received an outpouring of support from the club, and Scarlett was allowed to leave hospital last week. Sam and Lyndall had a son called Smith in April last year, so they became parents of three infants in less than a year!
