Cape Town - Former All Blacks captain Richie McCaw and ex-Black Sticks hockey star Gemma McCaw are expecting their first child.

According to the Stuff website, the couple posted on social media on Friday night: "Rich and I are very excited to announce that we are expecting our first baby later this year #overthemoon #mcbaby"

They posted a tiny pair of running shoes, along with a men's and women's pair.

All Blacks legend McCaw, 37, retired from rugby after leading New Zealand to a second consecutive Rugby World Cup title in 2015, beating Australia 34-17 in the final in London.

Gemma McCaw, nee Flynn, 28, retired from competitive hockey last October. 

She played 246 matches for New Zealand and scored 71 goals after making her international debut in 2008.

The hockey star won silver and bronze medals with New Zealand at the 2010 and 2014 Commonwealth Games in Delhi and Glasgow, respectively.

Richie McCaw played a record 148 Tests for the All Blacks and is the most capped rugby player of all time.
