Ponting’s wife is expectingFebruary 27th, 2008 - 1:40 pm ICT by admin
Melbourne, Feb.27 (ANI): Australian captain Ricky Ponting has revealed that his wife Rianna is expecting their first child.
Rianna, his wife of six years, is 14 weeks pregnant. They met in 2000 and she has been a positive influence on Ponting as he ascended to the national captaincy.
“It’s great to have her as a big part of my life, she’s been a great support for me, given up a lot of things (in) her own life to be around and help me out through my own cricket career,” he said at Tuesdays Allan Border Medal function.
Ponting broke out of his slump last Sunday with a century in the one-day win over India at the SCG, the Daily Australian reports. (ANI)
