AB de Villiers And His Wife Welcome Second Child
South African limited overs skipper AB de Villiers welcomed their 2nd child as his wife Danielle gave birth to their 2nd baby boy. Danielle gave birth to their 2nd child on Friday in Johannesburg. The newly born has been named as John Richard de Villiers. It remains to be seen whether John Richard can emulate his father Abraham Benjamin in the future.
De Villiers has returned home following South Africa’s dismal showing in the Champions Trophy as they were eliminated in the group stage following losses to Pakistan and India. He made himself unavailable for the Test series in England which he has done for the past year or so to keep himself fit for the limited overs leg of the tour. He was part of the South African squad which played England in a 3 match T20I series following the conclusion of the Champions Trophy.
DE Villiers took to his Instagram account to share the great news of the birth of their 2nd child with a beautiful and a meaningful caption which read, “Now we are 4! Praise the Lord for this amazing blessing in our lives. John Richard de Villiers was born at 11 am on Monday the 17th and both Danielle and John are safe at home. My wife is the most amazing woman and once again showed incredible courage and strength through all of this.”

De Villiers and Danielle tied the knot in 2013 with Danielle giving birth to their first baby boy in 2015. Abraham de Villiers is two years old now and will be looking forward to enjoying his time with his newly born brother. AB is a through and through family man and despite being arguably the greatest modern day batsman and being a busy man he loves spending enough time with his family.
Mr. 360 AB de Villiers is considered as a modern day great and has the ability to smash any bowler with disdain and consistently. His onslaught against Dale Steyn in the IPL is still fresh in everyone’s memory. Though injury has played a major role in curtailing his career down to limited overs cricket, de Villiers biggest dream will be to finish his career with a World Cup victory in 2019. It is too early to comment on that but he will push himself and will definitely strive for that extra yard.
