'Cheating' rugby player Andy Powell, wife reveal newborn son

Welsh rugby player Andy Powell opens up about life as a new father, 10 months after his wife accused him of cheating.

Newport Gwent Dragons player Andy Powell has spoken about his new role as a father, 10 months after his wife publicly slammed the rugby star for allegedly cheating.

Back in March last year, the couple split up after Natasha Gascoine accused her husband of infidelity, as well as gambling.

Powell's other half tweeted his lewd text messages online and also auctioned off a number of his clothes on eBay.

However, the couple rekindled their romance back in May and welcomed their first baby together on New Year's Day - son Henry Harman Gascoine-Powell.

"I'm a real hands-on dad," the Daily Mail quotes Powell as saying. "I don't mind changing Henry's nappies and doing late night feeds. It's a mad feeling, absolutely crazy but completely enjoyable.

"I've got a few days off now to spend time with Tash and Henry and then I'll be back training. The boys have been great and sent us a top with Powell on the back for little Henry."

Last year, Gascoine revealed that she had suffered three miscarriages.
