Crystal Palace star Van Aanholt’s wife gives birth just four days after team-mate Joel Ward becomes a dad – The Sun

CRYSTAL PALACE players are enjoying a baby boom after Patrick van Aanholt and Joel Ward celebrated their new boys being born within just four days of each other.

Defender Ward, 30, posted a photo on Instagram to his 31,000 followers five days ago (March 11) with the news of the arrival of little Benjamin Alexander.



The Selhurst Park star, who is seen kissing wife Jessica in the snap, wrote alongside the photo: "Yesterday our little man arrived into this world in some spectacular fashion.

"Benjamin Alexander Ward you have captured our whole hearts.

"You are everything little man, and we can’t remember what the world was like before you! You are so loved."

Eagles hero Wilfried Zaha was one of the first to send his well wishes to the happy couple, for whom this is their first child.

He wrote: "Congrats bro."

And former Palace ace Joe Ledley commented: "Congratulations both hope all went well sending our love."

Then, today, left-back Van Aanholt posted on Twitter some photos of his new arrival, Raven Reign, who was born yesterday (March 15).

The Holland star captioned the photo: "Welcome to the world my son. Raven Reign van Aanholt. 15.03.2020. Such a beautiful blessing… life is precious."

Hope everyone had a a good Christmas, stay healthy and blessed for 2020… love from the van Aanholts ❤️ 🎄

This is Van Aanholt's third boy with wife Linsey – the couple have previously welcomed sons Jaden and Devon.

Both Palace stars can enjoy some unexpected time off with their loved ones due to coronavirus.

There will be no Premier League action until April 3 at the very earliest and players have been banned from commercial travel and told to keep a diary of their whereabouts.
