AFL footballer Aaron Sandilands, and his wife Jenny, welcomed their first child on November 26, and have named their daughter Sloane Ellie. At 211 cm (6 foot 11) and a peak weight of 122 kg (270lb), Aaron is the current tallest and heaviest ever player in the AFL, leading to wild speculation that his baby would be of massive proportions. However, Sloane Sandilands was right in the middle range at 50 cm long and 3.2 kg (7lb).

Aaron has been playing for the Fremantle Dockers since 2003. He won the Ross Glendinning Medal in 2009 and 2010, the Geoff Christian Medal in 2009, and Fremantle’s Fairest and Best in 2009.

Jenny (nee Hofsink) and Aaron met through mutual friends at the Left Bank Hotel, and were married in 2010.

I note that baby Sloane is right on trend for the expected rise in names starting with S!
