And now their wait is finally over with the couple sharing an adorable image of their new arrival.

It was captioned: “You’re finally here. Welcome to the world our beautiful baby boy.”

Among the delighted replies were congratulations from Ireland prop Finlay Bealham as well as Jessica O’Mahony – wife of Irish captain Peter.

Joanna Cooper – who is also due to give birth quite soon – was similarly on hand to pass on her best.

Unfortunately for Joey, it was a week of mixed emotions.

The Reds advanced through the quarter-finals with ease against Ospreys by 23-7.

Having dispatched of Ulster 43-20, Leo Cullen’s charges have had to make the 13,600 kilometres flight to Pretoria before facing the Bulls on Saturday themselves.

Cullen acknowledged arranging such a long-haul trip at short notice in June for a combined number of 45 between players and coaches has proven to be a logistical nightmare.

Ahead of that bruising affair at altitude, he joked: “A week’s notice? A week until we’re there playing a rugby match. It’s a very unusual dynamic.

“I don’t to bore you about the dynamics of how airlines do/don’t operate on the weekend, but there is multiple moving parts.

“I don’t know if you’ve booked many trips for 45 people on a Saturday night? If anyone has any advice?

“I don’t know (when we leave), the bags are packed. We’ll be setting sail alright. Maybe we’ll go on a boat!”
