Simon Zebo has shared an adorable photo with his daughter Sofia.

The Munster and Ireland rugby star (27) shared a photo to Instagram of him holding his young daughter in Blackrock, Cork.

"Daddy x daughter day," he wrote.

Zebo welcomed his second child with girlfriend Elvira Fernandez in late 2016.

The couple, who have been dating for three years, are also parents to two-year-old Jacob.

Fernandez, a model, moved from her native Madrid in 2015 and moved to Ireland to be with her beau and raise their children here. She graduated with a degree in law from University College Cork (UCC) last year.

In a 2015 interview, Simon said fatherhood changed his approach to his career trajectory to do what "whatever is best for me and my family".

"It is not just me so I can’t be selfish," he said.

"At the end of the day, rugby is a business and you can’t get swallowed up. You have to look after yourself, and know what’s best for you and your family."
