Jamie Roberts has revealed he and his partner Nicole Ramson are expecting a baby daughter.
On Twitter on Friday evening Roberts simply said “Baby girl incoming end of March” with a heartfelt silhouette photo of his family.
The Wales, Lions, and Dragons rugby star and doctor became a father with his and Nicole’s first child in February, a baby boy named Tomos Rhys Roberts.

Earlier this year the Dragons’ centre spoke about his love for fatherhood on the RugbyPass Offload podcast.
“It’s amazing,” he said. “It’s been an awesome few weeks. “I had a week off, missed the home game against Leinster, and was then back into training.
“I have a new-found respect and appreciation for rugby-playing dads. A lot of mates who I have played with down the years have had kids before me. I never quite realised how challenging that would be.”
As well as still playing rugby Roberts revealed last month that he had graduated with yet more honours from Cambridge University – sharing another picture on graduation day with his baby son, who was knitted out in Cambridge University rugby colours.

Captioning the picture, he wrote: “Graduation day with my Cambridge University mascot at Queens’ College.”
And he is not finished there. Roberts is currently studying for a Master’s in business administration at Loughborough University.
Away from academia he has recently extended his contract with Dragons by a further year and he is making plenty of appearances on TV as a pundit with the BBC.
