Former international cricketer Michael Clarke and wife Kyly Clarke have received an early Christmas present. It’s a baby girl born on Tuesday morning. The baby is five weeks premature but is in good health. Karl Stefanovic announced the good news on Tuesday on the Today show.

“I can report to you all back in Australia that from a very good source, that former Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke and his beautiful wife Kyly have just had a baby girl,” Stefanovic said, according to Sydney Morning Herald.

Michael and Kyly have yet to confirm the happy news. It is very likely that the couple will break the news via social media as they did back in July when the couple was expecting their first child.

In another photo posted by Kyly, the couple is seen touching the baby bump and smiling at the camera.
