Cricket star Nathan Lyon was seen for the first time with his wife Emma, their newborn baby and daughters from his first marriage while out together in Sydney on Tuesday.
Daily Mail Australia first reported the couple welcomed their secret newborn on September 11, when they were spotted pushing the baby in a pram near their home in Sydney’s west .
Lyon, his wife and daughters Milla and Harper looked happy as they enjoyed a casual outing with the new arrival in Woolwich, not far from the spin bowler’s Sydney home.
His fans were treated to their first clear look at the newborn’s face as he took the toddler out of his cradle-style Bugaboo stroller after spending time at a local cafe.

It’s a far cry from the secrecy that surrounded the pregnancy before the Daily Mail Australia broke the news with exclusive photos and got a simple ‘no comment’ when we asked the caster if the baby was his.
Lyon and Emma have done a great job keeping their baby a secret, with Emma appearing to have carefully edited the photos she posted on Instagram, even when she was on Ashes tour with her husband from July to August.
Emma has cleverly hidden her growing baby bump with a series of clever styling tricks over the past few months.
She was last photographed by the paparazzi in May, wearing an overcoat that reportedly hid any telltale signs of a growing baby bump.
They also tried hard to keep their engagement a secret before tying the knot in July last year.
The couple did a great job keeping the pregnancy a secret, but felt no need to keep it a secret after Daily Mail Australia first broke the news of their new arrival.

After making careful fashion choices to hide her pregnancy for months, Emma was dressed casually as she stepped out with her husband and daughters.
Lyon and his wife have made no official announcement about the baby, but an insider with impeccable ties to the Australian cricket team exclusively gave Daily Mail Australia some details last week.
Our source revealed that the spin king never felt the need to tell his teammates and their partners to keep their information about the new arrival to themselves.
“Everyone knew, it wasn’t a secret – we weren’t sworn to secrecy, it just wasn’t news to tell anyone else,” they explained .
While remaining tight-lipped on details, the insider accidentally let slip the gender of the couple’s newborn.
“I don’t know his name, sorry,” they said.
Lyon, 35, and Emma, 33, are reportedly keeping their son’s name closely guarded.
“They choose not to lead a public life and if they choose to keep their pregnancy a secret, that’s their business,” the source said.
Daily Mail Australia first revealed the couple’s secret baby when Lyon was spotted pushing him in a pram near her Sydney home earlier this month.
The couple did a great job keeping the pregnancy a secret – but didn’t feel the need to swear Lyon’s teammates and their partners to secrecy, a well-placed source said.
The couple has been fiercely private from the start, and when their relationship progressed to getting engaged, they tried to keep their July 2022 nuptials out of the press.
“They are choosing not to share this information or their pregnancy with the public or the media – so it’s not up to anyone else to break the news for them,” the source revealed.
Their relationship began in scandalous circumstances when they were caught kissing in Perth in late 2017 while Nathan was still with his ex, Mel, with whom he shares Milla and Harper.
Mel detailed their heartbreaking breakup in a March 2018 blog post.
The then-single mother said her pain was “real and deep” and recounted nights she would lie in bed with her children and cry.
“I didn’t ask for this, this wasn’t how my life was supposed to be. He was my forever, he was my whole world,” she wrote.
Lyon and Emma bought their Sydney home together in 2020. Rumors began circulating that their engagement took place last year.
This was later confirmed when Emma was spotted with a large engagement ring on her finger during the fourth Test against India at the Gabba in 2021, while she also posted about her search for a wedding dress on Instagram.
