Savea took to Instagram to confirm the arrival of Keeon Savea on October 20 - two days after the All Blacks' 27-7 Bledisloe win in Auckland where he had started at No.8.

Savea posted a picture of Keeon holding his mother's hand alongside the caption, "God's gracious gift".

The post was mirrored on Saskia's Instagram as well.

Keeon is the second child for the couple who also have their daughter Kobe.

Plenty of Savea's teammates have already congratulated him and his wife with messages on the post including TJ Perenara, Akira Ioane, and Otere Black.

Savea is missing tomorrow's third Bledisloe Test in Sydney to be with his family, leaving young Blues loose forward Hoskins Sotutu to fill the vacant No.8 jersey in his place after starting the first two Tests there this season.
