WEST HAM captain Declan Rice welcomed his first child into the world last August.
The Hammers skipper's long-term partner Lauren Fryer, who he has been with since he was a teenager, gave birth to their son, Jude.
Rice, 24, confirmed the news by showing off a new tattoo in West Ham's 2-0 defeat to Brighton at the London Stadium.
The ink showcased his son's name, Jude, and date of birth – August 7.
Rice also had the symbol for Jude’s star sign, a Leo, tattooed onto him ahead of the match.
The England international has been with partner Lauren for well over SEVEN years.

In 2021, the pair were pictured with former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher at Reading Festival.
The couple also have a dog – Raffa the pooch – which Rice gifted Lauren for Christmas one year.
