There’s been a mini baby boom at the National Rugby League recently, with three baby girls being born to players and their partners in the past week or so. I’m putting them all in one entry together to save space.

Last week, Brent Tate, centre for the North Queensland Cowboys, and his wife Lani, welcomed their second child, a daughter called Macy. Macy Tate was born at 3 am on Tuesday August 16, and she has an older brother called Kyden, who turns three on August 26. Brent and Lani were married on Australia Day in 2007.

On Friday August 19, Brett Morris, winger for St George Illawarra Dragons, and his partner Kate Milliken, welcomed their first child; a daughter named Emily Isabelle.

On Monday August 22, winger for the Melbourne Storm, Anthony Quinn, and his partner Frances Imwold, welcomed their first child; a daughter named Summer Hope.
