Dangerfield welcomes first child

CATS fans have taken to social media to celebrate the suspected arrival of baby Dangerfield but the couple was yet to formally confirm the birth early Wednesday night.

Congratulations for Patrick and Mardi, and predictions of gender and name, followed but an official statement by the suspected new parents, or the Geelong Football Club, was yet to be made.

From high school sweethearts to first-time parents, the pair are believed to have brought the newest member of their little family, reportedly a boy, into the world on Tuesday night.

A visitor post to the Geelong Cats Facebook page on Wednesday indicated the Dangerfields had had their baby overnight. In her post, the woman asked the club if anyone knew what the sex was.

While the 2016 Brownlow medallist had previously said he wouldn't leave a game if his wife went into labour, he was notably absent from Cats training on the Gold Coast this week.

On Sunday, Mardi posted a photo to Instagram of their car packed and ready to go with a brand new infant carrier and overnight bags.

"May still have a couple of jobs to do before I'm actually ready ... wouldn't want to be too prepared but I'd say that's a capsule in a car," she posted at the weekend.

The footballer announced back in January their due date was in July.

The Moggs Creek couple, who share an entertaining social media presence, recently joked about naming their first baby after Dangerfield's favourite movie in a video for Unscriptd.

"I love Indiana Jones and I want it to be called Indiana, and, my father's name is John, so imagine if you had a baby's name that was Indiana John Dangerfield," he said in the clip.

"It won't be that," Mardi retorted.
