EXCLUSIVE: NRL star Sam Burgess confirms he is expecting his first child with girlfriend Lucy Graham: ‘We are so excited and happy to be starting this new chapter together’

Sam Burgess‘ girlfriend Lucy Graham is pregnant with their first child, five months after going public with their relationship. 

The retired NRL great, 34, confirmed the happy news to Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday. 

‘We are so excited and happy to be starting this new chapter together… Happy days,’ he said in a statement. 

Lucy, who hails from the UK, recently made the decision to move Down Under permanently and it’s believed her pregnancy was the reason. 

Burgess is already a doting father to his two children Poppy, four, and son Billy, three, with his ex-wife Phoebe Hooke, and while he isn’t able to see them as much as he’d like, he provides for them unconditionally.

Friends say they are ‘beyond excited’ Sam is starting a new chapter with Lucy by his side. 

‘He’s mad about Lucy. It’s been a whirlwind but she is a fantastic woman. They get along so well. All of his friends are so thrilled to see how happy he makes her,’ a close friend said. 

‘The Burgesses are very family oriented and I think there was always a plan to start a family. From what I hear, she is genuinely good for him. When they’re together apparently they laugh all the time – she cracks him up.  

‘He is likely going to coach South’s next year, so this is a nice step for him.’

Burgess, who was born in West Yorkshire, England, has known Lucy for about 20 years. 

Her identity was revealed in October last year, after he took her as his date to the premiere of Russell Crowe’s film Poker Face in Rome.

Lucy is the co-founder of the sustainable fashion label Sentenced, which launched in September 2019.

Sam found love with Lucy after a series of flings that followed his acrimonious split from Phoebe in January 2019.
