Kyle Walker confirms gender of fourth child with Annie as pair 'overjoyed' with newborn

Kyle Walker has welcomed a baby boy with his wife Annie Kilner, making the footballer now a dad-of-six. He and Annie are also parents to three young sons together, and Kyle shares a son and daughter with Lauryn Goodman.

The Manchester City ace, 33, has been living in a rental property near the family home he shared with Anne, 30, and their sons - Roman, 11, Riaan, seven, and Reign, five - after it was revealed he had fathered a second child with influencer Lauryn. The couple are said to be co-parenting and trying to rebuild their marriage after months of drama.

Speaking about Kyle and Annie's new arrival, a friend said: "The whole family are absolutely thrilled about the baby. It is a relief and a source of joy for them all. They want to move forward with their lives away from the drama from here on."

"The baby came over the weekend and we believe Kyle was with Annie in the hospital to support her as was always planned. Kyle has been a very involved father, and a very good father, throughout everything that has happened," they continued to the Daily Mail.

They added: "He and Annie are working on their relationship and nobody knows what the future will hold. They have not fully reconciled yet, he is still in his own place. However they do want to send a message that they are united as a family. Annie will continue to support him and they both agree that their family is their priority."

The new arrival is Kyle's sixth child, having also welcomed son Kairo, three, following a fling with Lauryn in 2019 while he had broken up with Annie. And earlier this year Lauryn revealed that he was also the father of her second child - a daughter born in August 2023 - and that she had fallen pregnant while he was married to Annie.

Kyle later confirmed that he had welcomed a second child with Lauryn, and publicly apologised to Annie. He told The Sun: "What I’ve done is horrible and I take full responsibility. I made idiot choices and idiot decisions."

He added: "I can’t begin to think or imagine what Annie is going through. I’ve tried to ask her but there’s pain and hurt. The man that’s meant to love, care and be there for her, did this."

During his admission, England star Kyle said that, since the media attention, "there have been days where I’ve just wanted to curl up in a ball and go to sleep".
