Shane Watson shares first pictures of his new-born daughter, Matilda Victoria

Australia all-rounder Shane Watson became a father for the second time, when his wife Lee gave birth to a daughter on Saturday. The cricketer had left for the West Indies tour but rushed back home to see his newborn.

Watson, who had a busy few months with World Cup 2015 followed by his Indian Premier League (IPL) stint with Rajasthan Royals shared beautiful pictures of his newborn daughter Matilda Victoria. Watson and Lee have a two-year old son named Will.

The Australian cricketer posted the photographs and wrote: “There are no words to describe the love we have for our gorgeous little girl. Meet Matilda Victoria Watson.”

On Friday, Watson became the new signing for Big Bash League (BBL) team Sydney Thunders for the next three seasons. The 33-year old dynamic all-rounder will miss the opening game of the tour against President’ XI but has made himself available for the two Tests against West Indies.
