Billy Sharp will be on Nottingham Forest duty at Brighton tomorrow after the birth of his son earlier today.The on-loan striker and his partner Jade Fair welcomed Leo Sharp into the world this morning.
And although Billy was not on the Forest team coach that left for Brighton earlier this afternoon, he’s planning on heading to the south coast this evening to take his place in Sean O’Driscoll’s squad for the game at The Amex Stadium (kick-off 3pm).
Billy said: “Jade and I are absolutely delighted with the safe arrival of our beautiful boy Leo.
“As everyone knows, we tragically lost our first son, Luey Jacob Sharp, so the birth of Leo makes this special time for our family especially poignant.
“We would like to thank our family and friends for the support they have given us throughout Jade’s pregnancy.
“We are thrilled to become parents and we welcome Leo into our world with lots of love and are looking forward to starting family life together with our son.”
The Club would like to congratulate Billy and Jade on the arrival of Leo.
