Congratulatulations are in order for Richie and Gemma McCaw as they announce some very exciting baby news!

The sports wonder-couple announced their news via Instagram last night, with a photo of cute, fluffy boots atop a rock overlooking a stunning background. 

The caption reads "We are very excited to share with you all that we are expecting another baby We’re so happy & Charlotte can’t wait to be a big sister."

New Zealand's biggest names have sent their well-wishes to the couple, including Coast's own Toni Street, Olympic gold medalist Sophie Pascoe and Silver Fern Katrina Rore. 

In November 2019, Gemma opened up about the "challenges" of juggling motherhood and her return to the Black Sticks in an interview with Newstalk ZB's D'Arcy Waldegrave.

"A little tiny part of me felt that there was a little bit of unfinished business.

"I felt like I really missed getting out there with the girls and playing the sport that I always loved.

"I filled in for a club hockey game when Charlotte was 4 months old and I kind of crossed the line out onto the field and I had that white-line fever again," she said.

"That's where it all started. I was fortunate enough to play NHL and then some time in the Aussie league and that's when I guess I started to get a little bit more serious about it and think 'I would actually love to play again at that high level'.

The couple's only daughter, Charlotte, turned 2 just last month. 

What awesome news!
