& # 39; George and Bossy will be officially in the minority. We are more than excited to have another mini Birdie with the four of us in July, & she wrote, referring to her middle child, the 11-month-old Birdie.

A source told the newspaper at the time: & # 39; I heard that she got pregnant eight weeks after the birth of her daughter (Birdie) in August. & # 39;

George is part of the Burgess family of rugby league players who moved to Australia from northern England. His brothers are: Sam, 30, Tom, 27 and Luke, 32.

It is unclear whether George & # 39; s family is moving to the UK with him.

The prop, who has played 147 NRL games since his debut for the Rabbitohs, has also played 15 Tests for his country.

He won the NRL premiership with Souths in 2014, in a team that included his twin brother Tom and older brother Sam.

& # 39; Although it is a huge decision to leave the NRL and say goodbye to Souths, I welcome the future of Wigan Warriors and the Super League, & # 39; said George.
