Welcoming their little bundle of joy into the world, she wrote: “Welcome to the world baby boy you’ve made all our dreams come true.”

Ryan, 26, has still to return to first team action, after enduring a bleed on the brain following the accident.

He spent eight days in hospital and when he was released, he slept for up to 20 hours a day for the first five weeks as he recovered at home.

According to The Mirror, he is to have a scan in January where doctors will ascertain if the skull has fully healed and if all goes well, he should be playing again in two months.

But the baby has been a huge source of motivation for Ryan.

A source told the Mirror: “This is the best news ever for Ryan and Rachel and hopefully 2018 will be a good year for them.
