Congratulations are in order for Richie and Gemma McCaw.

In a post to social media, sporting legends Richie and Gemma McCaw announced they are expecting their second child later this year.

The pair currently have a young daughter named Charlotte, saying she "can't wait to be a big sister".

The news comes a month after the sporting couple's first baby, Charlotte, who turned 1 in December.

In November 2019, Gemma opened up about the "challenges" of juggling motherhood and her return to the Black Sticks in an interview with D'Arcy Waldegrave.

"A little tiny part of me felt that there was a little bit of unfinished business.

"I felt like I really missed getting out there with the girls and playing the sport that I always loved.

"I filled in for a club hockey game when Charlotte was 4 months old and I kind of crossed the line out onto the field and I had that white-line fever again," she said.

"That's where it all started. I was fortunate enough to play NHL and then some time in the Aussie league and that's when I guess I started to get a little bit more serious about it and think 'I would actually love to play again at that high level'.

"A year ago just before having Charlotte I didn't think I'd probably be lining up back in the team. But [I'm] grateful for the opportunity and very excited with the year ahead and what's to come."

They married in Wanaka in January 2017.
