Asia's Tech News Daily

Brownlow medallist Lachie Neale and wife Jules have welcomed their first child, a daughter named Piper Rose.

The Lions star announced the new arrival on Instagram after his Perth-raised partner gave birth in Brisbane on Wednesday.

“Welcome to the world Piper Rose. You’re now my world,” the new father wrote. “@jules_neale you’re a star.”

Jules also took to Instagram to share a video of herself kissing the newborn, saying “mama loves you beyond words”.

“And just like that all the years of dreaming, wishing, longing don’t seem to matter because here you are in my arms after all,” she said.

“I won’t take a second of you for granted my little P.”

The couple were inundated with hundreds of messages from players, partners and Aussie celebrities.

Former Dockers teammates of Neale, including Luke Ryan, Stephen Hill, Hayden Crozier and Tommy Sheridan wrote their congratulations, while Perth natives Nikki Gogan and Tayla Damir also shared in the love.

“Congratulations guys, she’s beautiful! Enjoy the newborn cuddles!,” influencer Jessie Murphy, wife of Carlton’s Marc Murphy, wrote.

“Congratulations mate ❤️ #girldads 🔥,” AFL great Brendan Fevola said.

Fellow Brownlow medallist Tom Mitchell left a red heart emoji, just one among the dozens in the comments of his post.

The baby joy comes after a whirlwind couple of months for Neale, who was linked to a trade back to Fremantle after the Lions’ semi-final loss to eventual grand finalists, the Western Bulldogs.

Following their straight sets finals exit, the 28-year-old revealed he and Jules were considering returning to Perth to raise their young family.

The Lions confirmed the two-time All-Australian had asked for time to weigh up the couple’s future, but within a week had come to the decision to stay in Brisbane and see out the remaining two years on his contract.

Neale played 135 of his 195 AFL games for the Dockers.
