NRL STAR Greg Inglis has revealed he has another son, to a woman he dated in high school.
The South Sydney captain has opened up on Instagram this morning to show his son Riley, five, that he is “proud of him”.
Inglis explains, Riley’s mother was his high school sweetheart and the pair reconnected in 2009, while he was on a “well publicised break” from his now wife, Sally.

“The result being this awesome and outgoing boy named Riley,” Inglis writes.
“His mother is a very private person, but now that he has started school, we need Riley to know that I’m proud to call him my son.”
The Queensland and Australia representative has been with his wife Sally since 2006. They married soon after their short break in 2009 and have a younger son, Nate.
“I hope all you dads out there who read this and know they can do better, stand up and be the best father you can be to your child/children.”
Inglis, along with nine other Australian sports stars, including Johnathan Thurston (NRL), Lleyton Hewitt (tennis), Brad Haddin (cricket) and James Courtney (V8 Supercars) is nominated for Sports Dad of the Year. The winner will be announced today.
