Cape Town - All Blacks superstar Sonny Bill Williams has revealed he and his wife are expecting their second child.

According to the Stuff website, Williams has been rehabilitating an Achilles injury he suffered at the Rio Olympics in August and has been enjoying some bonus time with his family because of it.

"To be honest it's probably the happiest I've been for a long time," the 31-year-ol told TV1's Breakfast.

"Being able to spend time at home with my girls, just concentrate a bit on family life."

"It's been tough, especially at the start, but there's always a silver lining to everything. At the Rio Olympics my sister got a medal, so we're proud as a family, and now, just waiting on the birth of my second child."

Williams and wife Alana Raffie had their first child, daughter Imaan, two years ago.

Williams has signed to play with the Blues in Super Rugby next season, linking up with his good friend and first rugby coach, Tana Umaga.
