The couple announced for the first time that their family would grow in April.
& # 39; Baby Daw is coming, & # 39; wrote Daw in the title of a photo of himself who at the time held the stomach of his girlfriend proudly in his arms.
Mrs. McKay also spread the heart-warming news through her own Instagram account.
WHO IS MAJAK DAW?
Majak Daw fled with his family from the war in Sudan and arrived in Australia in 2003.
In 2010, he became the first Sudanese-born AFL player when he was ninth overall drafted by North Melbourne.
He didn't have much impact at the start of his career and was dropped several times in reserves
Daw was accused of rape in 2014 for an alleged incident in 2007, but was acquitted during a trial in December 2015.
He was defended in the 2018 season and established himself as an important player, who made many points of interception.
He is active in the Sudanese community of Melbourne and is an AFL ambassador.
& # 39; Pretty happy with our lil friend on the road. Baby Daw is coming this year, & she placed.
Daw was the first Sudan-born player to play in the AFL when he made his debut with the Kangaroos in 2013.
He enjoyed an outbreak season in 2018 and played 18 games as a defender before being pulled out of the Yarra River on December 17 with injuries to his hips and pelvis.
Daw had reportedly fought with his partner and taken prescription drugs before driving to Bolte Bridge in Melbourne and plunging into the Yarra River.
The star defender returned remarkably to AFL six months after the fall when he played about 20 minutes in early July in the KFLaroos VFL collision with Sandringham at North Melbourne's home base.
More to come.
