Family man Sonny Bill Williams has revealed he’s having another child with wife Alana Raffie.

The rugby star has had plenty of time on his hands since crashing out of the NZ Sevens Olympic campaign in Rio this year, but has revealed he now has something extra special to look forward to.

And despite his injury upset, the 31-year-old says he is “the happiest I’ve been for a long time.”

Speaking to Breakfast on Wednesday morning, Sonny Bill put his happiness down to refocusing his attentions to his wife and infant daughter.

“Being able to spend time at home with my girls, just concentrate a bit on family life,” Williams said of what makes him happy.

The proud dad shares constantly shares updates about his little family, including he and Imaan having daddy-daughter dates and messing around in the park.
