Local pop star Connell Cruise has been rather quiet on his social platforms over the past few months – and we finally know why. The ‘Into The Wild’ singer returned to Instagram to share that he and his wife Sarah have welcomed their first child into the world.

Connell, who won the very first season of Dancing With The Stars last year, took to the social networking site and shared “I’ve been offline for a minute, I know, but it’s been for the best of reasons… our son, Ivor Wright Kingsburgh. Couldn’t be happier, couldn’t be prouder!”

Connell reveals in another post that Ivor is now three months old and that parenting has been a tough, but rewarding journey. “Three months since setting up shop in the parenting business, exhausted but loving it,” he says. “We’ve learned so much already, and it feels like we’ve only just begun.”
