29-year-old cricketer David Warner has returned to Sydney to be with his wife, who is due to give birth to their second child any day now.
Cricket Australia announced David’s replacement in the squad, Usman Khawaja, citing "family reasons" for the Sydney-born athlete's departure.
"We wish both David and Candice well and look forward to welcoming David back into the squad when circumstances allow," the statement read.
While David hasn't confirmed if his wife has gone into labour yet, the official cricket.com.au page says the sports star has officially begun his paternity leave.
David shared the article explaining he was set to return to his wife on his own Facebook page and was soon inundated with well-wishes.
Woman’s Day was lucky enough to witness David’s fairytale wedding to Candice earlier this year. The couple’s 16-month-old daughter Ivy Mae followed her stunning mother down the aisle, which brought David to tears.
“How could I not have a tear in my eye when I saw Candice walk around the corner looking like the most beautiful bride in the world?” He said at the time.
Candice first announced the exciting news of her second pregnancy in July with an adorable shot of Ivy Mae holding up the star’s ultrasound.
“Ivy is so excited and so are we that she is going to have a little sister to play with soon. @davidwarner31 & I couldn't be happier that our little family of 3 will soon become 4,” Candice captioned the photo.
