Two telltale signs point to Nathan Lyon having a secret baby with his wife Emma after the cricket star was pictured pushing a newborn in a pram twice in the space of three days.
Photos showed the fan-favorite bowler wearing his distinctive baseball cap and pushing a pram designed for newborns near his home in Sydney’s west on Saturday and Monday, despite no previous indication that his glamorous wife Emma was pregnant .
When Daily Mail Australia asked Lyon if the child in the pram was his, he gave a telling “no comment” and refused to speak further.
Additionally, the entrance to the couple’s home now has a note reading “Please don’t ring the doorbell” – a common request from parents who don’t want their babies woken up.
An eagle-eyed fan spotted Lyon and Emma walking with the pram on Saturday, with the bowler seen alone pushing the same pram on Monday afternoon.
Lyon was spotted walking this Bugaboo pram twice in three days near his home at Tennyson Point in Sydney’s west – with this photo taken on Monday afternoon.

An eagle-eyed fan also photographed the couple with the pram near their home on Saturday
On Saturday the couple were spotted walking to a local shop for a drink, while on Monday Lyon was pictured walking alone with the pram and his pet Weimaraner Gus.
He was seen pushing a cradle-style Bugaboo stroller, specially designed for newborns.
There was no previous indication that Emma was expecting a baby.
She attended the Ashes tour with the rest of the Australian team WAGs and appears to have carefully edited the photos she posted on her Instagram to avoid any photos that could reveal a pregnancy.
The last time she was photographed by the paparazzi, in May, she was wearing an overcoat that would have hidden any telltale signs.
The couple also tried to keep their engagement a secret before tying the knot in July last year.
Emma and Nathan became Lyons when they tied the knot last year, after managing to keep their engagement a secret for months.
Lyon and Emma have been together since 2017 and bought their first home together in Sydney in 2020
Emma and her drummer’s relationship began in scandalous circumstances, as they were caught kissing in Perth in late 2017 while Nathan was still with his ex, Mel, with whom he shares two daughters.
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, nicknamed ‘GOAT’ (greatest of all time) for his record 496 Test wickets, has kept a low profile since returning to Australia to rehabilitate an injured calf he picked up during the second Ashes Test at Lord’s .
This injury ended his record 100-match injury-free run as an Aussie Test spin bowler.
While recovering, he launched a new company called GOATD with his wife Emma, a platform that aims to connect sports fans and athletes.
“(Emma) just looked at me and said, ‘You’re an absolute idiot. I help you in the shower and everything like that, you’re an idiot,” Lyon said of his wife’s advice when he was injured. England.
Emma branded her husband an “idiot” for choosing to bat while injured during the second Ashes Test at Lords earlier this year.
Lyon and Emma started dating in 2017 and 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, while she also posted about her search for a wedding dress on Instagram.
Their couple appeared in style at the Australian Cricket Awards in January, with Emma donning a stunning sparkling white low-cut dress while Lyon donned a tuxedo.
