NRL star Darius Boyd and his wife Kayla Boyd have welcomed her third child, a baby girl.
The 32-year-old mother shared the exciting news to Instagram on Tuesday alongside a series of adorable photos of her newborn wrapped in a blanket.
‘Gia Chele Boyd and just like that, an angel was born. Have been soaking up the past 32 hours with our third baby girl earth-side,’ she wrote.

‘You are everything darling girl, you are loved more than you will ever know and your two sissy’s can’t wait to meet you!’
‘It’s absolutely everything, and I mean everything that comes with having a newborn that does it for me. There really is no love, quite like this,’ she continued.
The couple are also proud parents to five-year-old daughter Willow and one-year-old Romi Yves.
They announced the impending arrival of their third child in an Instagram post back in September last year.
The announcement came months after Kayla opened up about their desire to have a third child throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
‘We’re not trying, but we’re not doing anything to prevent it,’ she told The Courier-Mail earlier this year.
It also followed the traumatic delivery of Romi in November 2019.
Shortly after the birth, Boyd spoke about the ‘trauma’ he experienced watching his wife and then unborn child battle for lives.

The Brisbane Broncos captain watched helplessly as his wife struggled through an eight-hour premature labour at Brisbane’s North West Private Hospital.
Kayla and the child became distressed during the labour process, forcing medical staff to perform an emergency caesarean to save their lives.
‘It was pretty awful seeing Kayla in such pain, going through contractions while they tried to put an anaesthetic needle in her back,’ Boyd told New Idea.
Mum and bub eventually pulled through, and Romi was born three weeks early on September 28, 2019.
