He split from his wife Simone Callahan 10 years ago but he’s still dedicated to his three children – even if he’s on the other side of the world most of the time.
Shane's should be expecting the arrival of his three kids any day now for a few weeks as he celebrates his eldest daughter Brooke’s 19th birthday.
The popular ex-cricketer shared a sweet throwback picture with her to Instagram, writing: “Love this silly but fun pic with my eldest daughter @brookewarne! Happy 19th birthday Brookstar, love you so much & am very proud of the young lady you've become, have a great day.”
The 46-year-old had been counting down the days till he sees his children, Brooke, Jackson, 17, and Summer, 14, for their annual winter trip to visit him in London, then on to Vegas for him to play the World Series of Poker.

It seems like he’s SO excited to see his kids, as he’s posted a bunch of family pics on Instagram of the four of them together.
On Father’s Day last week, he captioned a photo: “I’m the luckiest father in the world to have these 3 amazing children, so much love for them.”
Despite the long distance, Shane told Channel 9’s Postcards program that he’s been keeping in contact with them through FaceTime and text messaging every day.
“It's hard being based on the other side of the world but being teenagers now, the good thing is they have time with me and time with their mum and they have time with their friends,” he told the show.
“I'm so lucky I have a great relationship with them, it's hard being a single parent with teenagers. All my kids have me wrapped around my little finger but I'm really lucky, they're great kids.”
