Has Chris Gayle really named his newborn daughter ‘Blush’?

After leaving the IPL to be with his partner for the birth of their first child, the big-hitting opener left everyone gasping for air when he welcomed their baby daughter “Blush” into the world.

He posted a following message on Instagram: “We would like to welcome the arrival of our beautiful daughter ‘Blush’ to this world 2 hours ago, Thank God. #GoodHealth&Strength…”.

That’s right, Blush — best known for its appearance in the infamous “Don’t blush, baby” line delivered to Channel 10 reporter Mel McLaughlin at a Big Bash game last summer.

Gayle was fined $10,000 by his Big Bash League team the Melbourne Renegades following his ‘flirt’ during a live interview with a female reporter.
