Ben Foden cradles newborn Farrah under his shirt in adorable snap – The Sun

BEN Foden cradled his newborn daughter Farrah under his shirt in an adorable snap last night.

Ben and his American wife Jackie Belanoff Smith welcomed their first baby together, an adorable daughter called Farrah last week.

And the rugby star, who now has three beautiful kids doted on his newborn as he shared a clip on Instagram on Monday.

Ben, 34, wrapped the baby in a top so that she could be close to his chest and cosy.

The handy baby carrier allows the newborn to feel her dad's heartbeat and helps a parent bond with their baby.

Ben wrote over his video as he lifted the material to show off Farrah's face: "Peek a boo"

Ben already shares daughter Aoife, eight, and son Tadgh, five, with ex Una Healy.

After her difficult labour, Jackie explained the tot was born three weeks early following health complications, revealing she was induced early.

She wrote: "So with an original due date of June 12, a few weeks ago I developed cholestatis, which is an elevation in liver enzymes or something.

"I was getting super itchy and blood work showed concerning levels, and it was decided I needed to induce at 37 weeks which is technically considered term."


"After 24 hours of labour, I wasn't dilating, and she needed to be sectioned, so mom and Mark (my stepdad) scrubbed up and had her out in 30 mins.

"(Ben cut the cord which turned out to be super short, which is probably why she wasn't coming down naturally and helping me dilate)."

Try Star singer Ben took to Instagram on Wednesday and joked about live-streaming the birth of their first child as the couple went to the hospital.

The rugby star shared video updates in the middle of the night of his American wife – who he married after just two weeks of dating – in hospital as he told her to "push, push".

A year after he divorced ex-wife Una, Ben tied the knot with US socialiate Jackie after just two weeks of dating.

He has two children with his ex, daughter Aoife and son Tadhg, five, and is said to be delighted to be welcoming a third child with Jackie.

A source told MailOnline: "Ben and Jackie are over the moon. They're so excited to become parents together and are looking forward to starting their new lives as a family.

"The plan is to move from America back to the UK and raise the baby here – there's lots to organise but they can't wait for their new arrival."

Speaking about his marriage with Una, 38, Ben added: "Una and Jackie are two very different people.

"When I was married to Una I was very much in love with her. She's a super-talented, brilliant woman and when I met Jackie, she came to me at a time when my life was a bit all over the place.

"She was very different, something that I needed and I love everything about her. Obviously a rushed decision, but an easy decision… I'm an old romantic at heart."
