GB hockey stars welcome baby boy and girl

Hockey is celebrating double baby joy as former GB women’s captain Alex Danson-Bennett gave birth to her first child, while current GB men’s captain Adam Dixon welcomed his first child.

Both stars took to Instagram to announce their news, with Danson-Bennett beginning a new chapter with husband Alex and the “greatest team” after her stellar career on the field.

“When life as you know it changes forever,” Danson-Bennett wrote.

“Welcome to the world little Ava Louise Danson-Bennett 💕

“We are completely besotted, all well, and feeling part of the greatest team @ab_ormiston.”

Meanwhile, Dixon took to Instagram to welcome the birth of son Rafe last Tuesday, with a simple #gamechanger tag.
