Jack Grealish and his girlfriend Sasha Attwood have announced that they are expecting their first child together.

The Manchester City star and his partner shared the exciting news with fans this week.

The Birmingham-born couple – who are both 28-years-old, and are childhood sweethearts, having been reportedly dating since their high school days in Solihull – each took to social media to share with their millions of followers that they are “beyond blessed” to be welcoming their first baby into the world later this year.

The footballer posted a photograph of himself hugging Attwood from behind, with both of their hands over her pregnancy bump.

“Life’s biggest blessing,” Grealish wrote on his Instagram post.


As well as the Manchester City and England winger revealing the news, Attwood also made the pregnancy announcement on her own Instagram too – where she has 269,000 followers, at the time of writing.

The young model lovingly wrote: “Half of me, half of you.”


Grealish, who is soon to be back training with City ahead of pre-season, following missing out on England manager Gareth Southgate‘s final 26-man Three Lions squad for UEFA Euro 2024, has received an outpouring of love and support from dozens of his fellow players, both at club and international level, on the announcement.

Striker Erling Haaland and goalkeeper Ederson are among the City stars to comment on Grealish’s Instagram post, while Harry Kane, Jude Bellingham, Declan Rice, Aaron Ramsdale, and Ezri Konsa are among the current England players to also show support.
