England cricketer Jos Buttler and wife Louise Webber got blessed with a baby girl on Sunday, September 5. Notably, the wicketkeeper-batsman had opted out of the ongoing five-match Test series against India midway.
In April 2019, Jos and Lousie became proud parents for the first time by welcoming their first daughter Georgia.
Rajasthan Royals, for whom Jos plays in the IPL, took to Twitter to welcome the newest member to their family.
The English couple have decided to name their second daughter Maggie.

The Royals had confirmed the news on social media: “Jos Buttler will not be part of the remainder of #IPL2021, as he and Louise are expecting a second child soon.”
