Former Essendon captain Jobe Watson and his model girlfriend Virginia Slaghekke have welcomed their second child.

The former footy star announced the arrival of the family’s new bundle of joy Wolf Odin Watson via Instagram on Sunday. 

‘Unfortunately mate, I think you look more like your dad than your mum!’, Watson wrote alongside an photo of his son asleep in a cot.

Meanwhile, Virginia took to her own account to share a photo of the newborn nestled into her chest.

‘Wolf Odin Watson – no words, just pure bliss,’ she wrote.

The doting parents first announced they were expecting their second child in a heartwarming Mother’s Day post in May.

Sharing a photo of her ultrasound, Slaghekke wrote: ‘Joining the squad this November’.

The couple’s latest arrival follows the birth of their daughter Juniper Hendricks Watson in September 2018.

Virginia met Jobe in New York back in 2016, where the AFL player was living after being slapped with a two year playing suspension over the Essendon Football Club’s supplements scandal. 

The couple crossed paths in a cafe and Watson chased her down the street to slip her his phone number sprawled across a napkin. 

They moved to Melbourne where Watson now works in property management and Slaghekke studies biomedical science and clinical psychology.

Watson captained Essendon for five years between 2010 to 2015 before he was caught up in one of the club’s most high profile drug scandals.

He was one of 34 players suspended after it came to light they had taken the banned substance AOD-9604 in the 2012 AFL season.

The sports star admitted to taking the drug but said he had been informed by the club that the substance was legal.

Watson was suspended from the 2016 season along with other players and was forced to give back his 2012 Brownlow Medal awarded to the best player of the season.

Watson moved to New York during his suspension where he worked as a barista, and met the now mother of his children.

The son of another former AFL great and now media figure Tim Watson then returned to play the 2017 AFL season but is now retired from the game.
