“Thankyou to the all the @nswswifts girls, coaches management and staff for being so incredibly supportive and I can’t wait to come watch you guys kill it this year!” she wrote.

“Lil goosey past the keeper and here I am letting you know I’m gonna be a GIRL dad!” Johnson wrote on his Instagram page, announcing the news.

The couple moved to Sydney when Johnson left the Warriors to sign with the Cronulla Sharks for the 2019 NRL season.

The couple were married in December.
