Erin Burns became a proud parent to a baby boy Jack Mitchell Murphy Burns. Burns’ wife Anna Jane delivered a baby boy on January 20. The duo got married in 2019. After the birth of their first child, Burns took to Instagram to share a beautiful picture of the baby’s hands.
She captioned the picture “Jack Mitchell Murphy Burns born 20.01.2022. This little guy has already stolen our hearts and camera roll, with more iCloud storage being purchased as we speak. I am so incredibly proud of my wife @smurphetta for the journey we have undertaken so far, and beyond excited about what the future holds for us as a little trio.” The photo shared by Burns garnered a lot of love and appreciation from the fans.
At present, Burns, who is a right-handed batter and a right-arm-off spinner, is a part of Australia A, which is playing a series against England A. The series is being played concurrently with the Women’s Ashes in Australia. She last played for Australia in 2019 when she featured in one ODI and five T20Is. The all-rounder is an integral part of the Sydney Sixers in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL). Earlier, she represented Hobart Hurricanes. Last year, she also featured in the Women’s Hundred playing for the Birmingham Phoenix. She is a useful all-rounder and an impact player.
Prior to Burns, in the world of women’s cricket, few women cricketers became proud parents in the recent past. Last year in August, Australia’s pace sensation Megan Schutt was blessed with a baby girl with her wife Jess Holyoake. Another Australian woman cricketer broke the news of her parenthood in October last year. It was Australia’s vice-captain Rachael Haynes, who became a proud parent of a baby boy with her partner Leah Poulton. Similarly, in 2020, New Zealand cricketers Lea Tahuhu and Amy Satterthwaite were blessed with a baby girl. The White Ferns’ southpaw Satterthwaite delivered a baby girl and took time off from cricket for maternity leave.
