‘We are both over the moon and very much looking forward to what the future holds.’

The star player moved from Melbourne to Sydney last year to be with Rushton, with the couple marrying in December. 

Rushton reportedly revealed the exciting news to her bosses at Fox Sports just last week, with the pregnancy making her unavailable to present at this year’s A-league World Cup in June.  

Cronk married the 33-year-old presenter in a low-key reception at Jonah’s at Whale Beach on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, on December 14.

Guests at the December wedding ceremony reported at the time Rushton was not drinking alcohol. 

The football star, 34, left Melbourne Storm last year following 13 seasons and a grand final victory, hinting he wanted to start a family.   

‘Tara my fiancee is based in Sydney and there are a few things in life that are more important than football, like family, getting married and a future,’ he said at the time.

NRL legends and Cronk’s former teammates were among guests to attend the wedding, for which details were kept tightly under wraps in the lead-up.

Finding a home to start their future was at the top of his priorities when he parted ways with the Storm earlier this year, ensuring he had it all sorted before signing a two-year deal with the Sydney Roosters.

Rushton sold her apartment in Kirribilli, in Sydney’s north, before the pair bought a four bedroom property on Mosman’s exclusive Queen street.

Cooper announced his signing to the Sydney Roosters in late October, with the two-year deal believed to be worth $1 million a season.
