Soccer star Harry Kewell, and his wife, actress Sheree Murphy, welcomed their fourth child and third daughter on January 14, naming her Dolly. She was born just before 6 pm, weighing 3.59 kg (7 pounds 15 ounces). Dolly joins big brother Taylor, aged 11, and sisters Ruby, 9, and Matilda, 4, who are all very excited to have a new baby sister.
Harry has been a member of the men’s national team, the Socceroos, since 1995, in which he has scored 16 goals – most notably one against Croatia which took Australia through to the knockout stages of the 2006 World Cup. An exceptional player, he has been called Australia’s finest football export. He has played for Leeds United and Liverpool in the English football league, and also spent two years playing for Turkish club Galatasaray SK. Last year he relocated his family to Australia so that he could play for Melbourne Victory.
Sheree is an English actress who became famous on soap opera Emmerdale. She was runner up on the fifth series of I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here, where she won fans over with her sweet personality. She has also hosted several TV programmes, and been the face of Gala Bingo. Rumours abound that Sheree will be offered a role on Neighbours, which Sheree says is flattering if true, as she is a massive fan of Australian soaps Neighbours and Home and Away.
Harry and Sheree met at a Leeds nightclub in 2000, and married in Las Vegas in May 2002.
