He is used to hearing the word baby sang at him from the terraces - as the famous chant goes.

But there was a different type of baby joy for Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki today, with the club confirming he had become a father for the second time.

Last night, Pukki's wife Kirsikka gave birth to the couple's second child.

The pair have welcomed a second daughter into the world, who they have named Ella, following the birth of their eldest Olivia in December 2017.

Despite the new arrival, City's top scorer was able to make it to Carrow Road in time for the club's 12.30pm kick-off against Cardiff City.

The Finn started the club's 2-0 victory against the Bluebirds, which saw goals from Emi Buendia and Todd Cantwell seal the win - with Pukki replaced by Jordan Hugill in stoppage time.
