Cricketer Brad Haddin, and his wife Karina, welcomed a son recently, and have named him Hugo Ross. Hugo Haddin joins older siblings Zac and Mia. Mia is 18 months old and was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, but is currently responding well to chemotherapy. We wish Mia all the best with her treatment and recovery.

Brad began his career with the Canberra Comets in 1997, and then switched to the New South Wales Blues, for whom he still plays. He made his international debut in 2001 against Zimbabwe, and made his Test debut in 2008 against the West Indies. Brad also plays for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League, and for the Sydney Sixers in Twenty20.
