Former Australian rules footballer Casey Tutungi, and his fiancee Bridget Ure, welcomed their first child on November 28, and have named their daughter Asta.

Casey used to play for Geelong’s VFL side, then became the coach of South Barwon in the Geelong Football League. His spine was injured during an on-field collision in the last minutes of a game against St Joseph’s in June this year, and he has been left a quadriplegic. He is receiving treatment at the Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre in Kew, Melbourne.

There have been several fund-raising efforts on his behalf, and a website has been set up to help pay for Casey’s medical treatment and equipment.
