Irish rugby star Devin Toner is celebrating becoming a first time father.

The Leinster and Ireland player welcomed baby Max on Sunday, with his wife of one year, Mary (née Scott). Toner shared the exciting news, alongside a picture of the adorable newborn, on Instagram.

"The newest member of the Toner clan. Max arrived on Sunday evening, everyone doing great. Things will be slightly different from here on out," he captioned the pic. Toner and his Leinster teammate Scott Fardy both opted against travelling to Johannesburg with the team in order to be with their expectant wives.

It's been a busy year for the pair - in addition to growing their family, Mary was a finalist in the AIB StartUp Academy Competition, where €250,000 is up for grabs, for her business Bakers n' Cakers. While Devin earned his 200th cap for Leinster in September.
