It comes after Gary and Jordan welcomed their third child, another baby boy whose name they have yet to reveal, last year. 

Jordan announced the happy news in July with a black and white image of her Geelong Cats husband holding their precious newborn in a hospital bed.

The lovebirds also share a daughter named Grace who is two. 

In an interview with the podcast The Significant Others in March 2021, Jordan spoke about the family’s heartbreak after Levi was diagnosed with a degenerative illness.

She said it took a long time for her son to be diagnosed with the unspecified disease, and detailed the devastation she and Gary felt after learning it was ‘life threatening’.

‘I just remember sitting with Gaz in that meeting and when they said it I just remember absolutely breaking down,’ she said.

After seeing a series of paediatricians, Jordan said it was the Geelong Football Club’s team doctor who finally put them in contact with the right person.

She said the new paediatrician ‘got the ball rolling’, and after months of concerns, the couple, who married in 2016, finally had some answers.

Jordan said she and Gary first became concerned after noticing Levi wasn’t reaching the same milestones as other children his age.

They decided to go public with the little boy’s condition because they didn’t want to have to lie when people asked about their son.
