Corey Parker and his wife Margaux welcomed their daughter River Monroe a few days ago, joining big sister Memphis and brothers Wylei and Jagger; Jagger’s birth was covered on the blog. Veteran Corey has been with the Brisbane Broncos since 2001, and is the team’s highest points scorer. He has also been selected for the national squad, the Queensland state team, The NRL All Stars, and the Prime Minister’s XIII.
Anthony Watmough and his wife Elle welcomed their daughter Jagger Rose on January 24. Anthony and Elle had quite a few struggles with fertility, and were told that their baby might be stillborn, so they are very relieved she has arrived safely, albeit several weks early. Anthony has children named Claudia and Jake from his previous marriage, who are Jagger’s siblings. Anthony was with the Manly Sea Eagles for many years, but joined the Parramatta Eels last season. He has also been chosen to play for the national squad, the New South Wales state team, City Origin, and the NRL All Stars.
Alex Glenn and his fiancee Jemma Morgan welcomed their son Miller Alexander on January 21, the middle name perhaps honouring the baby’s father. Alex is originally from New Zealand and came to Australia as a teenager. He has played for the Brisbane Broncos since 2009, and has also been chosen to play for New Zealand and the Cook islands.
Jack Reed and his wife Karen welcomed their daughter Quinn Ivy on January 19 [pictured]. Jack was born in England and grew up in Queensland; he has played for the Brisbane Broncos since 2011. He has also been selected for the English national team, and for the NRL All Stars.
