Quadriplegic former NRL player Alex McKinnon has welcomed a baby girl with his wife Teigan.

The 26-year-old, who suffered a devastating spinal cord injury in 2014, had always dreamed of being a father.

McKinnon and his wife Teigan welcomed their bundle of joy – named Harriet Anne – on October 7.

The couple posted a photo of their new little family to Instagram, both parents beaming with their daughter.

The happy news comes four years after McKinnon was left a quadriplegic while playing for the Newcastle Knights.

The couple also welcomed their firstborn on their one-year wedding anniversary.
