AFL star in baby love triangle drama
Former AFL player Josh Hill has reportedly admitted he is involved in a baby love-triangle drama with two women.
The 31-year-old former West Coast and Western Bulldogs star this month fathered two children to different women in Melbourne and Perth in a five-day span.
Hill, however, has only publicly celebrated one of his new children, posting glowing images on Facebook of him holding his new daughter, Noa, with fiance Jo Duffy on August 8.
He is yet to post any images of him with his other new daughter, Mila Grace, with former girlfriend Kara Wicks. Mila Grace is believed to have been born on August 13.
The full extent of his situation became public when his Wikipedia page was updated. "2020 has been a big year for Hill, becoming a father for the first time … two children born in the same week to two different women," it read.
According to The Daily Mail, Hill has confirmed both children are his.
However, he has denied claims he and Wicks were a couple, saying they only ever had a "casual" relationship.
"She knew at this point that I was in a relationship and expecting a baby,' Hill said in the report.
"It was a mistake having sex with this girl, and I'm spending every day making it up to my partner.
"It was a casual arrangement, which I stupidly didn't stop straight away."
His claims are disputed by a friend of Wicks' in the report with the unidentified friend claiming Hill and Wicks even had a long distance relationship following his return to Melbourne.
Hill says he will "honour his responsibilities" with Wicks and his daughter, who are both in Perth.
Hill is still based in Melbourne with Duffy, where he coaches the St Albans Saints football club.
The ex-Eagle was delisted by the club at the end of the 2017 AFL season - forcing him into retirement at the age of 28.
Hill played 107 games with the Eagles after being traded from the Western Bulldogs, where he earlier played 66 senior games.
Hill is also the second cousin of St Kilda star Bradley Hill and Fremantle's Stephen Hill.
