Ben Foden has finally introduced his baby daughter Farrah to his other kids Aoife Belle and Tadgh.
The rugby player welcomed a baby girl with his wife Jackie Belanoff Smith in May, but had to wait until now to introduce Farrah to her siblings.
In photos shared on his Instagram Story, Ben can be seen lying in bed with his three children.
Jackie also shared a sweet video of Aoife Belle doting over her new sister, and wrote: “Farrah is learning how to ‘social smile’ and is practicing on her beautiful big sister, whom she cannot stop staring at all day ????.”
Ben was reunited with his eight-year-old daughter Aoife Belle, and his five-year-old son Tadgh this week – after spending months apart due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The news comes after Jackie slammed “hateful” fans who “worship” Ben’s ex-wife Una Healy in a scathing rant on Instagram.
Jackie shared a lengthy statement on her Instagram Story, after she received a cruel message from an online troll about their newborn daughter, Farrah.
The troll’s message read: “So Ben. If there was a choice who to save from a burning building Aoife Belle or your new daughter. Which would you save?” [sic]
The message referred to Ben’s daughter Aoife Belle, who he shares with his ex-wife Una Healy.
He also shares five-year-old son Tadgh with the Irish singer, who he split from in 2018 – amid claims he was unfaithful.
Jackie shared a screenshot of the message on her Instagram Story, and told the person to “get a life”.
The new mum then launched into a scathing rant about Ben’s critics, who “worship” his ex-wife Una.
She wrote: “To be clear, Ben is f***ing suffering not being able to fly back to see his kids. They were suppose to be with us in April but flights were cancelled. We are waiting and checking EVERY DAY on updates on flights btw the US and England.”
“We are hoping to have them all summer. This pandemic has force separated us. The only time I’ve ever even seen Ben cry was over a video of Tadgh missing him. Ben speaks to the kids EVERY DAY via FaceTime.”
“We spend hours almost every single day playing in their virtual reality apps with them, like Roblox. Whatever we can do we are doing. We are trying.”
Jackie continued: “These Una worshipping fanatics are literally the worst most hateful people I’ve ever encountered. Ben made one f***ing mistake. Move on a**holes. He is a good man. He is a loving father.”
“I don’t even care about the nasty barrage of comments and dms I get from these people constantly telling me he’ll cheat on me, that he married me for a green card, that he’s a liar etc etc. BUT LEAVE THE F***ING KIDS OUT OF IT.”
“This one really pissed me off,” Jackie wrote, before adding, “Or it’s 5am and I’m up every 2 hours breastfeeding on no sleep and very hormonal….”
Ben and Jackie welcomed their first child in May, nine months after they tied the knot in the US – after just weeks of knowing each other.
The rugby star moved on with Jackie after splitting from Una Healy in July 2018, after six years of marriage.
At the time, Ben was accused of cheating on Una with PR girl Becky Milne.
