Cape Town - New Zealand's version of sporting royalty has arrived as Gemma and Richie McCaw on Thursday announced the birth of their daughter, Charlotte Rose McCaw.

According to the Stuff website, the parents said they were "excited" to announce the arrival and "our hearts are so full".

Charlotte's arrival was announced on the day of the New Zealand Rugby Awards in Auckland, and one day ahead of a press conference called for All Blacks coach Steve Hansen to outline his future.

Charlotte's arrival was announced by Gemma on Instagram and Richie on Facebook, with a picture of three hands, clutching each other.

"We are excited to announce the arrival of our daughter, Charlotte Rose McCaw. Thank you for the love and blessings we have received, our hearts are so full," it said.

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

Richie McCaw played a record 148 Tests for the All Blacks and is the most capped rugby player of all time. Of those 148 Tests, McCaw was on the winning side a staggering 131 times (88.5%), with only 15 defeats and 2 draws.
