Sports stars Shaun and Kayla Johnson have welcomed their first baby into the world.
Both Shaun, a Kiwis rugby league star former New Zealand Warrior and Kayla, a Silver Fern, posted touching photos and messages on their social media pages late on Friday night to announce the birth.
The couple have named the girl Millah Malvina Johnson after what appears to have been a safe birthing process, with Shaun noting how well his wife coped.
"You are beyond amazing," Shaun said alongside a picture showing Millah's tiny hand grasping his own.

"My world in a picture. Welcome to this big crazy world Millah Malvina Johnson. We love you so much. Born 20.08.20," Kayla posted on her Instagram account accompanying photos of each of the new parents with their child.
The Kiwis rugby league playmaker and Silver Fern tied the knot in Byron Bay in December after moving in together in Sydney in June last year.
The couple used their wedding as an opportunity to raise money for the bushfire relief effort in Australia.
Rather than set up a traditional gift registry, they asked family and friends to donate to the appeal.
