Their princess, Kylah was born at 2.30 pm, just eight days before her mother's birthday, said the proud father.

"Layla is recovering from all the pricks and the pain, but she did well. They both are healthy, which is what matters the most," said Cheslin.

"I still pinch myself to make sure it's real," he told us. "It's a feeling you cannot explain until you actually experience it. I have a beautiful baby girl and we are so blessed."

Cheslin, currently on the injured list with an ankle injury, and Layla live in Brackenfell in the northern suburbs of Cape Town.

They've been together for three years and are set to tie the knot in December.

After the Stormers Super Rugby season the young family are expected to move to France when Cheslin joins the club Toulouse.

Congratulations, you two!
