Cricket star Nathan Lyon was spotted for the first time with his wife Emma, their newborn baby and his daughters from his first marriage as they went out together in Sydney on Tuesday.
Daily Mail Australia first broke the news that the couple had given birth to their secret newborn on September 11 when they were seen pushing the boy in a stroller near their home in Sydney’s inner west.
Lyon, his wife and daughters Milla and Harper looked happy as they enjoyed a casual outing with the newcomer in Woolwich, not far from the spin bowler’s Sydney home.
His fans got their first clear look at the newborn’s face as he picked the tot out of his Bugaboo bassinet-style stroller after spending time at a local cafe.

It’s a far cry from the secrecy that surrounded the pregnancy before Daily Mail Australia broke the news with exclusive photos and received a simple “no comment” when we asked the bowler if the baby was his.
Lyon and Emma did a great job keeping their baby under wraps. Emma appeared to have carefully edited the photos she posted on Instagram, even while she was on the Ashes tour with her husband in July-August.
Emma has been expertly concealing her growing baby bump over the last few months with a series of clever styling tricks.
She was last photographed by the paparazzi in May wearing a coat that would have covered any telltale signs of a growing baby bump.
They also tried to keep their engagement a secret before getting married in July last year.

Lyon and his wife have not made an official announcement about the baby, but an insider with impeccable connections to the Australian cricket team exclusively revealed some details to Daily Mail Australia last week.
Our source revealed that the Spin King never felt the need to tell his teammates and their partners to keep what they knew about the newcomer to themselves.
“Everyone knew it, it wasn’t a secret – we weren’t sworn to secrecy, it just wasn’t news we were allowed to reveal,” they explained.
While the insider kept a low profile, he accidentally revealed the gender of the couple’s newborn.
“I don’t know his name, I’m sorry,” they said.
Lyon (35) and Emma (33) are said to keep their son’s name strictly secret.
“They choose not to live a public life, and if they choose to keep their pregnancy a secret, that’s up to them,” the source said.

The couple remained very private from the start, and as their relationship developed into an engagement, they tried to keep their July 2022 wedding out of the press.
“They are choosing not to share this information or their pregnancy with the public or media – so it’s not anyone else’s job to announce their news for them,” the source revealed.
Their relationship began in scandalous circumstances when they were caught kissing in Perth in late 2017 while Nathan was still with his ex Mel, with whom he shares Milla and Harper.
Mel detailed their heartbreaking breakup in a blog post in March 2018.
The then-single mother said her pain was “real and deep” and recounted nights she lay in bed with her children and cried.
“I didn’t ask for this, this wasn’t how my life was supposed to be.” “He was my life forever, he was my whole world,” she wrote.
Lyon and Emma bought their Sydney home together in 2020. There were rumors circulating that their engagement took place last year.
This was later confirmed when Emma was spotted wearing a chunky engagement ring on her finger during the fourth Test against India at the Gabba in 2021, while she also posted on Instagram about her search for a wedding dress.
