"So happy to introduce the latest addition to the Read family. Reuben James Read, born 19/1/17. Great view from the hospital room over Hagley Oval, teaching the wee man the art of Test cricket early. #futureblackcap," Read posted on his official Facebook page.

Reuben takes the Read family to five, joining sisters Elle and Eden.
