1381675_10151682101531127_951431220_nNRL football player James Tamou, and his partner Brittney McGlone, welcomed their first child in August, and have named their son Brooklyn Knox.

James is originally from New Zealand, and moved to Australia when he was 13. He has played for the North Queensland Cowboys since 2009, and in 2010 he was named their most improved player. He has played for the New Zealand Maori team, and has recently represented both Australia and New South Wales. Currently James is in England for the Rugby League World Cup, playing for the Australian national squad.

Brittney is a full-time professional athlete, a 400-metre hurdler at the Australian Institute of Sport. One of her hobbies is running in stilettos, and she has won all four races that have been held in Australia – two of them for Guinness world records. She has also been entering fashion-on-the-field competitions on race days since she was a teenager, and last year was crowned Myer Face of Canberra Racing.
