Melbourne Demons Star Kysaiah Pickett Faints During Partner’s Labor in Heartwarming Delivery Room Moment

Kysaiah Pickett and his partner, Ardu Cubillo, joyfully welcomed their daughter in April. The Melbourne Demons star and his partner are delighted by the new addition to their family.

A Candid Moment in the Delivery Room

Ardu Cubillo recently shared a humorous and candid photo from the delivery room, capturing the moment when Pickett fainted while she was in labor. She playfully captioned the image, “My favourite memory of you is when you fainted on me mid labor. No sorry, I will never let you live this down.”

Announcement of Parenthood

Last year, Pickett had joyfully announced that he was going to be a father through an uplifting social media post. The 22-year-old forward shared touching photos of himself cradling Cubillo’s baby bump at the beach, captioned, “Our next chapter,” with a yellow heart emoji. Fellow footy stars like Max Gawn, Steven May, Luke Jackson, Jake Bowey, and Pickett’s former teammate Brodie Grundy congratulated him.

Maintaining Privacy with Occasional Shares

Pickett typically keeps his private life out of the spotlight. However, he has shared a few glimpses of his life with Cubillo over the past year. These include pictures of the couple posing in a hallway and walking a dog.

The Joyous Birth Announcement

In April, Pickett announced the arrival of their daughter with a heartwarming Instagram post: “19.04.24. The best day of our lives.” Friends and fans were quick to share their joy in the comments. Fellow player Christian Petracca left two heart emojis, while fans expressed their excitement with comments like, “Welcome, little one. You’ve chosen awesome parents.” Jack Viney’s wife Charlotte also wished them well, and Brodie Grundy congratulated the couple.

Celebrating Fatherhood on the Field

During Melbourne’s round seven win over Richmond, Pickett celebrated his new role as a father by making a baby-cradling gesture after scoring a goal.

Pickett’s Impressive Footy Career

Since debuting for the Demons in 2020, Pickett has made a significant impact, scoring 140 goals in 95 games and earning an AFL Rising Star nomination. Following Melbourne’s 2021 grand final victory, he dedicated his premiership medal to his late mother and grandfather, stating, “Everything I do is for them and for my family.”

A Legacy of Football Excellence

Pickett’s dedication to his family and football is further highlighted by his connection to former Demons players Neville Jetta and Byron Pickett, who are his uncles.
