Exciting News For Jarryd Hayne Off The Rugby Pitch
2016 has been a big year for Rugby League's Jarryd Hayne!
It seems returning to the NRL after a stint playing American Football in the US is only the beginning.
It is being reported that the 28 year old is about to become a father.
New Idea is reporting that Hayne and his 'close friend' Amellia Bonnici are expecting a baby, due later this year.
The pair allegedly met while the rugby league star was visiting Australia earlier this year.
According to reports, the 25 year old has also moved into Hayne's Gold Coast pad, after he signed a contract with the Gold Coast Titans.
While the news came as a shock initially, Hayne reportedly encouraged Bonnici to go through with the pregnancy and offered his full support in raising the child.
The publication also suggests the 25 year old has been welcomed into his family as they await the impending arrival of the bub.
Hayne is yet to publicly comment on the news.
